DES MOINES, IOWA — Titan International (Titan) is pleased to announce a total of $92,580 has been raised for various regional FFA chapters over the course of 2017 through special event tire auctions. For more than 20 years, Titan has held tire auctions at a variety of farm shows benefiting 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 2017 included:
- Husker Harvest Days (including LSW® online auction): $40,000 raised for Nebraska FFA

“We are proud to support an organization dedicated to cultivating the future leaders of the agriculture industry,” said Scott Sloan, agricultural product manager at Titan. “The tire auctions are our way of giving back to hardworking students.”
Each year, Titan auctions off thousands of tires for local FFA chapters, using all proceeds as monetary support for education and hands-on leadership training. Titan’s first annual state FFA tire auctions took place in 1996 at the Farm Progress Show and Sunbelt Ag Expo and both auctions still continue to this day.
