Big tires (on rims)
And the fields still refuse to get planted
It’s getting to be a busy time on farms all around the country and in Canada, with lots of activity happening in the lead-up to Spring planting. For many farmers, this is also the first time that tractors and other machinery and implements have left the barn since November. If you didn’t have time, or forgot to do so over the winter months, it’s a great idea to get in the habit of giving your tires a good thorough “going-over” before heading into the field for the first time. This simple annual practice could save you time, aggravation, and money.
With spring rapidly approaching, farmers across the United States are gearing up and preparing to re-enter their fields. Depending on the location and what type of crops the farm is growing, the equipment used and needs of the crops vary. However, the challenges presented during the spring remain the same throughout much of the U.S., as spring brings wet fields and inconsistent weather—which means that farmers need to be mindful of the load and traction of their machines, avoid soil compaction, and be able to move quickly and cover lots of acres during windows of good weather. Below is a look what will be happening on farms across the U.S. this spring and how Alliance farm tires can help overcome the challenges presented by the season.

The world is brimming with great rivalries, and the farming world is home to a few historical rivalries as well—most notably, John Deere vs. Case, or simply green vs. red. What makes this rivalry great? With both companies vying for ag supremacy for almost two centuries, the competition dates back more than a few generations and is filled with the all the familial pride, resentment, competition, and bias that defines a great feud.
