    My father taught me a man is only as good as the word that he keeps. If you tell someone that you will do something you do it no matter what the cost. If you are responsibil for anything animals kids or anything it is yours to care for not someone else. You always treat a lady like a lady and treat them as kind as you would your own mother. Never allow the weak to lose just because they are week. Alway feed those that are hungry. Treat all men as the same way you want to be treated. Give God glory for all thing and alway give Him,the 1st 10% of everything and be thankful for the 90% He is blessing you with. One of the last things I remember from my dad is be proud to be an American and serve your country and your fellow man proudly.

    My Dad started an IH business in Marion Ky in 1975 and I grew up in the business and grew to love that way of life! My Dad passed away in 2002, and is still missed by all the local farmers! He was their mechanic, salesman, local jokester but most of all he was their FRIEND! He was known to many as the man who could fix anything and well known by many. Last year I went back into the agriculture field and have had so many stories told to me nearly daily about the “man” they all knew and respected! He proudly wore the International badge with pride and later in his career the CaseIH! If I end up to be half the person he was and so many loved and respected, I feel like I have made it in life!

    My Dad moved houses. A difficult and sometimes dangerous job. I was on the job site with him from the time I was nine months old. I literally grew up working. I’ve seen my Dad wake up in the morning, have my Mom pull him up out of bed, wrap his broken ribs and then work all day. He taught me the value of hard work. I’ve also seen people come by his shop (he was also a welder) and he would work all afternoon and into the night helping a “neighbor” get their equipment or vehicles back in working order. Oftentimes, he wouldn’t take money from them. My Dad, my brother and I cut and split wood any time we had the chance. We, along with our grandmother and lots of our neighbors, burned wood for heat during the winter. Most of it cut and split by my brother and I. All of this was brought home one day when we were visiting my Mom and Dad for Christmas. Dad was sitting in his office softly weeping, tears on his cheeks while looking at photos of earlier times in our lives. I asked him what was wrong. He stated simply, “You never had a childhood. I’m sorry for that. You’ve been working with me all your life.” I said to him, “Dad, let me tell you something. Because of you, I don’t have to depend on anyone for anything in my life. I can change my own oil, work on my own vehicles and do just about anything to a house that needs to be done. Thank you for that. I loved my childhood. I grew up everywhere. I had many different people teach me what they knew. I can drive anything with wheels or tracks. Dad, I had a great childhood. I love you for that.” He cried a bit more (I did too), I hugged his neck and that was that. He taught me so much, it would be difficult, if not impossible, to relay all the life lessons he taught me.

    Hello, my name is Linsey Weenk. My dad (and grandpa) are true legends in my eyes. They always worked hard and made every sacrifice to make sure the farm ran 100% and that his kids were at 100% at whatever they did. My father instilled in me hard work always wins regardless of what field ,pardon the pun, we were in. He always taught us that it wasn’t the color of the machine or how it looked, it was the value of the machine. That’s why we always ran Case, eventually running case Ih , starting from buying old machinery to where they are today, brand new metal . In closing, I live in California now missing my family farm up in Sasakatchewan , but comfortable knowing the big red machines are getting the job done at home. The pic I’m sending is from a few years ago before I persued my Monster Jam career full time racing monster trucks for Lucas Oil in the Lucas Oil Crusader. We were replacing a belt on the motor that supply’s the air to the tank. My wife took the pic and is one I cherish. Thank you d

    My dad is a great friend, hes not just a father to me but also a friend who never give up loving me and my two sisters. He taught me a lesson that had an impact on my life. That lesson brought me here to where I am right now and Hes the reason why I am strong and confident in any challenges in life. He was once like me, he never had any toys like what I have right now and he never experience being a real kid. Well, he had to work to help his parents bills, even though he was the youngest among 7 children. He fought and worked hard for what he wanted and now hes successful and thankful that his hard work is very worth it. I love my dad, I just want to greet every dad or those ones who will become a Dad one day, a happy fathers day!
    I LOVE YOU DADDY

    My dad has been a IH / Case IH mechanic for 40+ years as well as a farmer. Things I’ve learned Dom him over the years is to be cautious around farm machinery and don’t rush Mother Nature and take pride in your machinery and take care of it.

    Mine is my husband, Dannie Bontrager
    who is the father to our amazing little boy. And a he grows he will keep giving him great advice. He always says don’t fear the unknown. Fear can sometimes take over our lives, but there is one thing that is greater than fear. That is faith in God. With him we dont need to fear, but push forward and he will get us through anything. Dannie will continue to be the greatest hard working dad I know. While also guiding our son through challenges in life. With the good book to help us learn ways to guide him!

    In 1974 my sister was in a bad car accident
    My mom & other sister were with her at the hospital 90 miles away
    It was a week away from wheat harvest , just me and dad
    A 14 foot combine , a single axle wheat truck , and a 11 year old kid….
    That’s what he harvested 600 acres of wheat with….
    Day after day ,week after week, out in the sun , no cab….
    He never showed any weakness….
    He didn’t say much , he didn’t have too
    He gave me advice like ” don’t break that ! ” but the most I learnt ,was from just observing

    My dads name is Craig. He is a construction plumber and I have the privlage to work for the same company as him. He is the most caring dad you can have. About a year ago we were working on a house and he was under the house tying in plumbing. And ended up having a real stroke at 45 years old. He was out of work for a few weeks and then couldn’t stand not working. He was so stressed with all the medical bills and quickly returned to work despite his health. He is so dedicated to serve our family and will never give up. I love my dad.

  • Dwayne Griffin6.9.2014 Reply

    My Dad taught me to be humble! He said do your best, work hard, and always stay true to yourself and your beliefs! He lived the life of millions of farmers! Beliefs that good will succeed and life will go on! A belief that what he did each day mattered to the security and prosperity of our nation as well as our family! He is a role model from me as well as many that have met him! What more can you ask. When it is all said and done! He is my hero!

    My father has taught me how to live. By that I mean that he showed me how to hunt and fish as a young boy. There was always something special about those quiet evenings spent on a river bank listening to his instructions and stories about his father. He also taught me the importance of hard work. He worked hard growing up and still does today. Watching his dedication to feed his family instilled in me a deep love for him as well as an appreciation of hard work and a job well done. Wether it was driving a tractor, building fence, or working cattle he always taught me something new and useful no matter how many times we did it he always had something new to show me. And last of all he taught me about love. He told me one day “son when your growing up you’ll get your heart broke and it’ll hurt and you’ll lose loved ones but remember you’ll see them again on the streets of gold. And as far as finding your woman don’t worry just be the right man and the right woman will come along”. Powerful words that I’ll always remember…especially when I teach my own son one day.

    My dad is the best dad there is. He teaches me how to defend myself, to plant crops, and much more! Even though he may be embarrassing and annoying sometimes, I still love him.

  • Autumn Schlieckau6.11.2014 Reply

    Growing up I was always a daddy’s girl. I loved to go help feed the calves, and my favorite thing in the world was to ride in the Steiger with him. He would take me along on parts runs, let me name cows, mix the calve bottles, watch milk the cows, most of these are my fondest memories growing up. I was the little farm girl growing up, and everyone knew me and my family’s last name because of the farm my grandfather and dad had built. As I got older, I had started to rebel against my father, and when tragity struck our family when my grandfather passed away from cancer, we were all left in a haze, me especially. I was close to my grandfather, and I think it hit me the most, and it caused tension between me and my dad. We butted heads up until the day I graduated highschool. Looking back now, I regret putting my father and mother through what I did, as I see now everything they had done for me, especially my dad. No matter how much trouble I got in, he was always there for me, no matter what. After my grandfather passed away, my father took over the smaller farm, and single handedly turned it into one of the biggest operations in our area of the state. I am probably the proudest daughter you will ever meet!

    Growing up I was always riding in the tractors everywhere he went even if it was from the shop to the house. When I was six he taught me how to drive our case tractor. As I got older he taught me how to drive all our tractors. Ever since I learned how to drive I have been working in the field with my dad. My dad is my biggest hero. He has just bought a new 4wd case tractor and seed drill. P.S. go case ih go

  • Katie Shrewsbury6.13.2014 Reply

    My name is Katie Shrewsbury. My father, Scott Shrewsbury, has taught me all that I know about being ready for life’s challenges. First and for most, he has taught me to trust in the Lord, through Him, all things are possible. Second of all he has taught me to be ready for anything, especially on a farm, you have to expect the unexpected. He has taught me responsibility, problem solving skills, and to have a strong work ethic. My Dad is one of the toughest men I know and he has taught me and my two younger siblings that you get out of something what you put in. In order to be successful you have to work hard and push through no matter what the circumstances. I am blessed to have Scott Shrewsbury as a father. He is a wonderful role model, supporter, and the best Dad that a girl could ask for. This picture attached to this shows my Dad sitting in our Case IH tractor attached to our platner and my brother Jason, checking the field. Thank you.

    Hi im Rachel. My dad is a logger he ran sheer for his brother for 10 or so years up until last year when his brother was diagnosed with cancer. They had to lay him off permenantly so my dad started his own bussiness. My dad grew up on a farm and has 7 siblings. He has always been a hard worker providing for his 4 children. Ever since we were little my dad has been teaching us about farming and working on the farm equipment. He used to take us to work with him and show us what he did. I am lucky to have such a great dad. He has taught me so much. Just now im realizing how much my daddy soes for me and i love him hes helped me with alot of my problems. And it hasnt been easy for him, he used to be a fire fighter and he has PTSD. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
    Sincerely,
    Rachel Hardwick
