The award winning series, American Farmer, which airs on RFD-TV, will feature Firestone Ag in an upcoming episode, airing fourth quarter 2017. American Farmer airs Tuesdays at 8:30aET on RFD-TV. Check your local listings for more info.

In this episode, American Farmer will explore the deep-rooted history of Firestone Ag, and its contributions toward modernizing Ag production. It will also explore the Firestone Ag division of tires, designed for today's high-horsepower farmer.

"For 85 years, Firestone has been proud to bring quality products to farmers," said Cindy Ridge, brand manager, Firestone Ag, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations. "In this time, we have built the largest dealer network in the industry, developed new technology to make tires work harder for farmers, and have been committed to putting farmers first in our business. We're excited to share our history and our story on American Farmer TV."

Committed to helping its customers be better farmers, Firestone Ag brings information and education to the farm through a variety of tools. From an inflation calculator to a six-step tire check, farmers are learning how tires play a vital role in the farms' bottom line. Engineers from Firestone Ag will explain how fuel costs, time in the field and soil compaction can all be reduced by paying more attention to their tires.

"The company believes so strongly in their tires that it provides an industry-leading, nine-year limited warranty, so that farmers can roll into the field and not worry about what's between them and the ground," said Robert Sikich, Senior Producer for the American Farmer series. "We look forward to exploring how this is yet another example of how Firestone is leading the Ag tire industry."
