Titan International is raising money for FFA with tire auctions and offering Ride ‘n’ Drive field demonstrations at various North American farm shows in 2017.

For 20 years, Titan has auctioned off tires in support of regional FFA chapters.. More than $133,000 was raised in 2016 from the tire auctions, the tiremaker said.

“FFA is a driving force in the agriculture industry,” said Scott Sloan, agricultural products manager for Titan and Goodyear Farm Tires. “The tire auctions are Titan’s way of giving back to FFA and the hardworking students who are the future of agriculture. The auctions also allow growers to bid on farm tires at highly discounted prices.”

At several of the farm shows, Titan will also host Ride ‘n’ Drive field demonstrations, giving attendees the opportunity to test out the latest technologies from Titan and Goodyear Farm Tires on a range of tractors and sprayers.
