Very Thankful for Family Farmers This Holiday Season

Very Thankful for Family Farmers This Holiday Season

Farmers and ranchers are the backbone of North America, working from sun-up to sundown, taking care of the land and livestock and providing food for their fellow citizens and the rest of the world. This holiday season when we express gratitude for our many blessings, let’s include our farmers and ranchers.

They make an important contribution to our economy by ensuring a safe and reliable food supply, improving energy security and supporting job growth and economic development.

When people think of agriculture, they often envision crop farming: soil and land preparation and sowing, fertilizing, irrigating, and harvesting different types of plants and vegetation. However, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, crop farming is just one element of the Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing, and Hunting sector. Agriculture also encompasses raising livestock; industrial forestry and fishing; and agricultural support services, such as agricultural equipment sales/repair and trucking services.

Here are some U.S. farming statistics to consider:

  • Two million farms dot America’s rural landscape. About 98% of U.S. farms are operated by families – individuals, family partnerships or family corporations.
  • 86% of U.S. Ag products are produced on family farms or ranches.
  • One U.S. farm feeds 166 people annually in the U.S. and abroad.
  • About 11% of U.S. farmers are serving or have served in the military.
  • 25% of all farmers are beginning farmers (in business less than 10 years); their average age is 46.
  • Women make up 36% of the total number of U.S. farm operators; 56% of all farms have at least one female decision-maker.
  • More than half of America’s farmers intentionally provide habitat for wildlife. Deer, moose, birds and other species have shown significant population increases for decades.
  • Careful stewardship by America’s food producers has spurred a 34% decline in erosion of cropland by wind and water since

We at CEAT Specialty Tires pride ourselves on providing Ag tires featuring the latest technologies at an honest price for North America’s hard-working farmers and ranchers – tires that deliver long wear, reduced soil compaction, outstanding traction in the field and a smooth, stable ride on the road.

Our technology offerings include VF (Very High Flexion) tires such as the Spraymax VF and Torquemax VF that carry 40 percent more load at a standard radial’s inflation pressure—or the same load (as a standard tire) at 40 percent less pressure – very good for reducing soil compaction!

We are proud to be part of the North American Ag industry and wish all farmers and ranchers a safe, healthy and prosperous 2024!

CEAT Tires to Star in Top Crop TV Program

CEAT Tires to Star in Top Crop TV Program

Lights, camera, action! CEAT Ag tires have been provided to two farmers participating in the upcoming “Top Crop” TV program which will air on RFD-TV and other TV networks in late fall.

“Top Crop” is a new reality documentary series that follows a group of farmers as they work hard to produce the best crops possible on their ground. Crops include corn, soybeans, wheat, or other specialty crops. Each week, the farmers will face challenges designed to test their skills and knowledge in planting, growing and harvesting these crops. They will showcase the quality and yield of their final crops. Along the way, viewers will learn about the latest farming techniques and technologies, as well as the challenges and rewards of running a successful farm.

As the documentary progresses, viewers will get to know the farmers on a personal level, learning about their families, their communities, and the challenges they face in running a farm. The show will also provide an opportunity for the farmers to share their stories and experiences, and to inspire others who are interested in pursuing a career in farming.

Illinois corn farmer Dan Luepkes proved his mettle in a previous reality documentary called Corn Warriors, which was also produced by Seth Wood, the man behind Top Crop.

When Dan, who farmed beside his father as a child, first looked into purchasing the property he now farms, he was told that the probability of going bankrupt within a short time was without question. The farm, now operating under the name Luepkes Enterprises, had extremely poor, sandy soil that was unable to consistently produce yields or profit. True to his bold character, Luepkes assessed the properties potential, ultimately deciding to gamble the outcome while stealing himself with determination to find a solution that turned the property from risk to reward.

This fall Luepkes will get his first experience on CEAT FARMAX tractor tires.

CEAT Spraymax VF tires have been installed on a self-propelled sprayer at Mann’s Farms in west central Ohio. Shelby Fite is a second-generation farmer. In high school, Fite found her love for agronomy and followed that interest to receive a masters degree in Crop Sciences. She and her husband are doing great things on the farm founded by her parents; we look forward to their feedback on our Spraymax tires.

Luepkes and the Fites are shining examples of today’s smart, savvy American farmers. We can’t wait until they experience the dependable traction, good roadability and long tread wear of their CEAT tires.

Rising Input Costs Have Farmers Worried; Time to Reduce Tire Costs!

Rising Input Costs Have Farmers Worried; Time to Reduce Tire Costs!

More than half of America’s big farmers expect prices for inputs such as fertilizer and fuel to soar by more than 12% this year, according to a poll by Purdue University.

Although much of the attention on increasing input costs has focused on this year’s dramatic rise in fertilizer prices, virtually all other input costs, such as seeds and machinery, are also expected to increase as the nation grapples with inflation and supply chain issues.

There’s no doubt that farmers are burning the midnight oil, calculating what to plant based on needed inputs and commodity futures.

What About Your Tires?

With fertilizer and other input costs skyrocketing, farmers are considering where they can reduce operating costs. What about your farm tractor tires and implement tires? What about CEAT?

CEAT Specialty Tires provides high quality farm tires with the latest technologies at an affordable price.

For example, we’re offering VF technology tires with the introduction of the Spraymax VF, which is specially designed for self-propelled sprayers. It is engineered to carry 40 percent more load than a standard radial. Alternately, it carries the same load as a standard radial at 40 percent lesser pressure.

CEAT offers a comprehensive line-up of radial and bias farm tires which deliver a cost per hour that is among the industry’s best. The CEAT Torquemax VF, for example, is designed for high power tractors. Our FARMAX series of farm tractor tires is getting rave reviews from farmers, such as Justin Studstill, peanut farmer in southeastern Georgia.

“We have been very pleased with the CEAT tires,” Studstill notes. “Our tractors spend a lot of time on the road, and the CEAT tires provide a smooth steady ride. They don’t get squirrelly like some tires do; very stable even when pulling heavy implements.”

The successful peanut farmer is also impressed with the traction provided by his FARMAX R80 radials. And while the CEAT tires have only been in operation at Big Creek Farms through one planting season and a recent harvest, they look almost brand new. Studstill is confident that the R1-W tread depth will deliver long service life.

Help for Family Farms

Help for Family Farms

Two million farms dot America’s rural landscape. About 98% of U.S. farms are operated by families – individuals, family partnerships or family corporations. It is amazing that 86 percent of U.S. Ag products are produced on family farms or ranches, and one U.S. farm feeds 166 people annually in the U.S. and abroad.

Our hat is off to America’s farming families. It is often very rewarding work, but not for the faint of heart. It is demanding. It is high stakes with the cost of equipment these days. Many input costs, such as fertilizer, are expected to double this year. Weather, of course, is another variable that farmers have absolutely no control over.

Kudos are nice but they don’t put food on the table. CEAT Specialty Tires is actively supporting America’s farming families by providing high quality tractor farm tires and farm implement tires with the latest technologies at an affordable price.

For example, we’re offering VF technology tires with the introduction of the Spraymax VF, which is specially designed for self-propelled sprayers. It is engineered to carry 40 percent more load than a standard radial. Alternately, it carries the same load as a standard radial at 40 percent lesser pressure.

Why should the “big boys” only benefit from VF technology?” The advantages of VF Ag tires, including soil conservation and higher yield per acre, should not be the sole realm of the mega farming operations! CEAT is delivering VF technology at an affordable price to small and midsize farms that are often multi-generational.

At CEAT we believe you do not have to sacrifice modern VF technology due to the price of the tire. We offer the VF advantage at an honest price. Our cost per hour is among the industry’s best; coupled with an aggressive entry level price, our VF technology is available to farms of all sizes.

Key elements of the Spraymax VF design include:

  • Stepped lug design provides better grip and traction.
  • The center tie bar delivers superior roadability.
  • Its rounded shoulders mean less soil and crop damage.
  • The higher NSD ensures longer life.

A Big Thanks to America’s Farmers on Thanksgiving Day!

A Big Thanks to America’s Farmers on Thanksgiving Day!

For this upcoming Thanksgiving, let’s serve a big helping of gratitude to American farming  families!

Americans enjoy a food supply that is abundant, affordable and among the world’s safest, thanks in large part to the efficiency and productivity of America’s farm and ranch families.

Here are some statistics to consider:

  • Two million farms dot America’s rural landscape. About 98% of U.S. farms are operated by families – individuals, family partnerships or family corporations.
  • 86% of U.S. Ag products are produced on family farms or ranches.
  • One U.S. farm feeds 166 people annually in the U.S. and abroad.
  • About 11% of U.S. farmers are serving or have served in the military.
  • 25% of all farmers are beginning farmers (in business less than 10 years); their average age is 46.
  • Women make up 36% of the total number of U.S. farm operators; 56% of all farms have at least one female decision-maker.
  • More than half of America’s farmers intentionally provide habitat for wildlife. Deer, moose, birds and other species have shown significant population increases for decades.
  • Careful stewardship by America’s food producers has spurred a 34% decline in erosion of cropland by wind and water since 1982.

We at CEAT Specialty Tires pride ourselves on providing hard working Ag tires for America’s hard-working farmers and ranchers. “Hard working” in terms of long wear, reduced soil compaction, outstanding traction in the field and a smooth, stable ride on the road.

Best of all, we provide the latest in Ag tire technologies, such as VF (very high flexion) tires at a competitive price to farmers and ranchers of all sizes. CEAT VF tires such as the Spraymax VF and Torquemax VF carry 40 percent more load at a standard radial’s inflation pressure—or the same load (as a standard tire) at 40 percent less pressure – very good for reducing soil compaction!

On this Thanksgiving holiday, let’s all say thanks to America’s farming families for keeping us fed and clothed!
