As 2011 wraps up, we appreciate your patronage and interest in the Be Ready blog. We’re thankful that agriculture continues to thrive, largely due to dedicated, passionate farmers like you. Here’s a recap of some of our blogs this year – are there others that stick out in your mind? We welcome your comments on our previous blog posts and invite you to offer ideas for topics you’d like to see covered in 2012.
Case IH is a proud supporter of the National FFA Foundation. Their undertaking of helping students prepare to be the next generation of agriculture leaders goes hand-in-hand with our mission to help farmers “Be Ready” for the opportunities and challenges facing agriculture.
During the recent National FFA Convention, we asked students to use Twitter to send us their thoughts on what they are doing to Be Ready for the future of farming. We promised that one respondent would receive a new Apple iPad 2 as part of the contest.
Our lucky winner is Elisa Sagehorn who grew up on a row crop and cattle farm near Holyoke, Colo. She currently is student at Colorado State University (CSU) majoring in agricultural education. She is the daughter of Keith and Diane Sagehorn.
Elisa tweeted “I will be ready through bringing ag education to elementary schools.” She already has served in agriculture advocacy roles, including presiding as a past state FFA officer, interning for the Colorado Farm Bureau and currently chairing the CSU College of Agriculture ambassador program.
Dr. Rob Zemenchik, Case IH Sales and Marketing Manager for Tillage Products, and the Case IH Crop Production team have been using the iPads with customers since September 2010. Zemenchik says that farmers are responding positively to the iPads. “Farmers reach for it,” he says. “They want to take it and look at it themselves. Because we can access the information right on the spot, our conversations can be tailored to customers’ specific interests and are much more efficient and productive, leaving producers more time in the field.”
