Women Break Farming’s “Grass Ceiling”

With the aging population of America's farmers and questions of where ag’s next generation will come from, one group has shown rapid growth: women. In fact, the number of female farmers in the U.S. has almost tripled over the past thirty years, with women now representing 30% of American farm operators.

Wet Spring Planting Goes Better with IF/VF Farm Tires

So far this spring, wet fields have delayed planting in many parts of the U.S. and Canada. As farmers fall behind historical planting norms, the anxiety to get into the fields regardless of conditions continues to grow.
