With the click of the mouse, a consortium of Central Ohio Case IH dealers bought one of the most unique skid steers around and became a major benefactor of the FFA at the national, regional and local levels. Their final bid of $77,000 won Evolution Ag, LLC the online auction for “Red Power” – a one-of-a-kind skid steer donated by Case IH to raise funds for the organization.

In fact, 89 percent of the sale proceeds with go to the National FFA Foundation and 10 percent to the Ohio FFA Foundation. One percent was recently awarded to Buckeye Valley FFA, the local chapter selected by Evolution Ag, LLC, which is the parent company of JR Equipment, Inc, Hill Implement Co., and Agri-Trac, all with Ohio locations.
