Farmers are more than customers. They’re our families, our neighbors, and they’re us. Case IH employees and their families farm millions of acres across North America. They put a part of that into everything we make. These are the stories of the farmers who build and use Case IH equipment.
Farmers Inspire Us.
Like you, we put a part of us into everything we do.
But we know our stories aren’t the only ones worth sharing. Share how farming shapes what you do.

Lee Brice – Inspired by Farmers
From the ones who help us build Case IH equipment to the ones who use it. Farmers are more than customers. They’re our families. Our neighbors. Their stories are our inspiration. That’s why we worked with Lee Brice to create a song that honors farmers across North America.
Steiger® Series Tractors From wild-haired idea to the leader in high‑horsepower
The story behind the most recognized name in high-horsepower, four-wheel-drive tractors, is the tale of a northwestern Minnesota farmer and his two sons. John, Maurice and Douglass Steiger designed and built their first tractor in an old dairy barn. That ingenuity and passion for farming would lay the foundation for every Case IH Steiger tractor we build today.
We knew that if we could find the axles and the engine we wanted, we could build it.”
Tanner B. – Corn and Soybeans
Tanner grew up helping his father and his grandfather farm. His family has experienced how farming is constantly changing and how farmers grow and adapt with these changes so they can then pass something better on to the next generation. Tanner uses those experiences on his farm and, at Case IH, to build something better for the next generation.
My grandfather farmed with a horse, and my dad with a Magnum. I farm with precision equipment and I can’t wait to see how the next generation farms.”
Axial-Flow® Combines The standard in harvesting, set by a farmer
Dave Gustafson was a lead engineer on the original Axial-Flow combine and a farmer. He developed a love for improving farm equipment while working on his father’s old Farmall® H and M tractors. He even built a combine using parts from a tractor and a sheller. It was the ingenuity he learned on the farm that he put into the design of the standard by which all harvesting equipment is judged.
My first word was tractor, so I was destined to be an agricultural engineer.”
Ray G. – Cattle and Wheat
While a young boy, Ray knew he wanted to be involved in farming, took jobs working on his neighbor’s farm and continued working on farms as he grew. For Ray, the passion these farmers had for their land was infectious. And today, it influences everything he does, whether it’s on his family’s farm or working at the manufacturing plant for Case IH Magnum™ tractors.
There’s a lot of sacrifice involved, but the beauty of working ground, watching the animals grow, makes it all worth it.”
Hank H. – Dairy and Hay
Hank is a sixth-generation farmer. Some of his earliest memories are of driving red tractors on his family farm — picking rocks and chopping hay with his dad. Farming is a way of life for Hank. He takes pride in taking care of his land and the way of life it provides. It’s the same pride and connection he feels serving farmers in his job at Case IH.
My family has always been red. I’ve wanted to work for Case IH since I was a kid.”
