Case IH Donates Tractors to Three Trade Schools
USAgNet - 06/03/2020

Following school closures and summer breaks, students from three technical colleges will eventually return to classes and continue working with new hands-on learning tools: Case IH tractors.

Case IH donated tractors to three technical schools: Parkland Community College in Champaign, Illinois; North Dakota State College of Science in Wahpeton, North Dakota; and Lake Area Technical Institute in Watertown, South Dakota. Each received one donated tractor.

The tractors will be used as training aids for diesel technology programs to benefit students' education. Each school that received a donated tractor is partnered with a local Case IH dealer and has a program to train students to repair agriculture equipment. The tractor models that were donated - a Puma 170, Optum 270 and Optum 300 - have a retail value of more than $500,000 in total.

"Programs and partnerships like these are instrumental in helping our dealer network hire excellent technicians," said J.E. Cadle, Case IH marketing manager for Maxxum, Puma and Optum tractors. "There is always a demand for technicians, and we are excited to take this opportunity to supply future generations with important firsthand learning opportunities and experience."

Case IH donated three tractors to technical schools, providing hands-on learning opportunities to better prepare next-generation agriculture equipment technicians.
