It’s all about agriculture this week. During National FFA Week, chapters across the country are hosting teacher appreciation breakfasts, conducting “Ag Olympics” competitions, speaking to the public about agriculture and much more. In the spirit of the week, we’d like to remind you and any FFA members you may know about a great opportunity for young, prospective agriculturalists. (more…)
Not many people can say they’ve won a tractor! The nine runners-up of the American Farm Bureau Federation’s (AFBF) 2013 Young Farmers & Ranchers (YF&R) competitive events recently were honored with a Case IH Farmall A tractor at the AFBF annual meeting in Nashville, Tenn. Events included the Discussion Meet, Excellence in Agriculture and Achievement Award. There are three runners-up in each competition. We’ll be introducing you to each of them in a series of posts, starting with the runner-up winners of the Discussion Meet. (more…)
For more than 170 years, we have recognized the important role farmers play in providing safe, quality food and fiber for people around the world. We are excited to team up with sister company, Ram Trucks, in a campaign that declares 2013 “The Year of the Famer.” Did you see the Ram Trucks Super Bowl ad that kicked off the campaign?
Did you have a chance to see “Red Power,” the one-of-a-kind, tricked-out Case IH skid steer? It appeared at a number of farm shows this year. Now it has a new home in Ohio, but not before its sale generated $77,000 for FFA!
It’s been a challenging year, but Case IH has been there with you every step of the way, helping you Be Ready. As the holiday season begins, we pause to count our blessings. Of course, our families are at the top of the list, but here are the next five things we’re thankful for. How about you? What’s on your list? (more…)

It’s National FFA Week and I want to alert FFA members, and all of those who support them, about a great opportunity to participate in the 2012 New Century Farmer Conference. Case IH is a sponsor of this five-day, intensive program that, in cooperation with the National FFA Foundation, is intended to help young, prospective agriculturalists see the exciting opportunities available to them in the 21st century.

Case IH is a proud supporter of the National FFA Foundation. Their undertaking of helping students prepare to be the next generation of agriculture leaders goes hand-in-hand with our mission to help farmers “Be Ready” for the opportunities and challenges facing agriculture.
During the recent National FFA Convention, we asked students to use Twitter to send us their thoughts on what they are doing to Be Ready for the future of farming. We promised that one respondent would receive a new Apple iPad 2 as part of the contest.
Our lucky winner is Elisa Sagehorn who grew up on a row crop and cattle farm near Holyoke, Colo. She currently is student at Colorado State University (CSU) majoring in agricultural education. She is the daughter of Keith and Diane Sagehorn.
Elisa tweeted “I will be ready through bringing ag education to elementary schools.” She already has served in agriculture advocacy roles, including presiding as a past state FFA officer, interning for the Colorado Farm Bureau and currently chairing the CSU College of Agriculture ambassador program.
