DES MOINES – Titan International announced Monday that a total of $133,260 was raised for various regional FFA chapters over the course of 2016 through special event tire auctions.

For 20 years, Titan has held tire auctions at a variety of farm shows benefitting state FFA chapters. These auctions provide the public with a great opportunity to purchase Titan and Goodyear Farm tires with 100 percent of proceeds going to support their state FFA organization.

Individual auction amounts in 2016 included:

A). Husker Harvest Days: $34,000 raised for Nebraska FFA.

B). Farm Science Review: $23,650 raised for Ohio FFA.

C).Sunbelt Ag Expo: $43,880 raised for Georgia FFA.

D). Farm Progress Show: $31,730 raised for Iowa FFA.

“FFA is the driving force for the next generation of leaders in agriculture,” said Scott Sloan, agricultural product manager at Titan. “We are proud to support FFA and contribute to the advancement of agricultural education.”

In addition to the amount raised via tire auctions, Titan is projected to contribute approximately 1,600 tires to tractor restoration projects through the National FFA Antique Tire Restoration program by year-end 2016.

FFA members can register to qualify for a free set of front and rear Titan or Goodyear Farm tires for their antique tractor. Students who will be undertaking a tractor restoration project, and would like to apply, should visit: titan-intl.com/antique-tractor-restoration.
