Kubota has donated another tractor to a farmer veteran as part of their “Geared to Give” program. Chad Tackett served in the U.S. Air Force before he came home to manage 200 acres of pines, hardwoods and pasture ground with his wife Shirlene. At a special ceremony, Tackett was presented the keys to a new Kabota L-Series compact tractor as thanks for his service from Kubota and their partner, the Farmer Veteran Coalition (FVC).

“This program empowers farmer veterans to achieve their dreams and make a true difference through their farming operations,” said Todd Stucke, Kubota senior vice president of sales, marketing and product support. “Kubota is proud to offer a token of our gratitude for those who have done so much for this country through their military service. We are extremely pleased to help Chad continue to make a difference in his community for many years to come.”

Tackett’s response was one of shock and surprise. “I am so glad to replace my broken-down 1970 tractor and I can’t wait see what my new Kubota can do on my farm and for the local farmer veteran community. I’ve never been so lucky and am incredibly grateful for this recognition.”
