Very Thankful for Family Farmers This Holiday Season

Tue, 26 Dec 2023 | PRODUCTS


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!
