Titan Tire raises $38,760 for FFA at Husker Harvest Days

DES MOINES, Iowa — Each year, Titan Tire Corporation donates hundreds of farm tires for auctions that benefit local chapters of the Future Farmers of America (FFA). This year, Titan added Husker Harvest Days to the list of events at which the company sponsors an auction. Titan donated a total of 74 tires at the September 10th event — valued at more than $120,000 — which raised $38,760 for the local FFA chapter.

“We take great pride in supporting the FFA and helping to benefit the next generation of growers,” says Scott Sloan, agricultural product manager at Titan Tire Corporation. “We’ve been doing this very successfully for years at Farm Progress and Sunbelt Ag Expo, and it’s great to see that the event went off without a hitch at our first year doing it in Nebraska.”

In addition to holding tire auctions, Titan also has an antique tractor restoration program for students and FFA members that take on the challenging task of restoring antique tractors. In 2012 alone, Titan donated more than 1,000 tires to student FFA members and 264 tires valued at more than $250,000 to local FFA auctions.
