“In the agriculture community, we know farmers will be the first to step up and help a neighbor in need, but the last to ask for help. Titan is proud to support organizations like Farm Rescue that are directly giving back to farmers impacted by hardships,” says Scott Sloan, ag product manager at Titan, which produces two distinct tire brands in the U.S. — Goodyear Farm Tires and Titan Tires.
In addition to raising funds through social media, Titan and local tire dealer Twin Valley Tire, Milbank, S.D., worked together to provide Farm Rescue with the tires necessary for their equipment.
"We are very satisfied with the Goodyear LSW tires that Titan has sponsored for our tractors and combines,” says Bill Gross, Farm Rescue founder and president. “The excellent traction, low compaction and smooth ride that these tires provide is impressive. They are durable tires that provide unparalleled floatation across wet soil conditions. Truly an industry leading product.”
Farm Rescue’s mission is to help farmers and ranchers who have experienced a major illness, injury or natural disaster. This requires providing the necessary equipment and manpower to plant, hay or harvest their crop.
“The work that Farm Rescue does for the agriculture community is commendable,” Sloan says. “I would encourage other companies in this industry and those that depend highly on food, fuel and fiber to get involved with this organization in any way they can.”
