Eligible equipment includes Cat skid steer loaders, compact and multi-terrain loaders, wheel loaders, telehandlers, backhoe loaders, hydraulic excavators and track-type tractors. A range of incentives from $250 - $2,000 are offered, depending on which equipment a farmer purchases.
“Caterpillar and agriculture have a shared history that goes back more than 100 years. This new partnership will make it easier for our members to improve productivity and efficiency and that’s all a part of sustainability. This program is especially well-timed, since skid steer loaders, backhoe loaders and hydraulic excavators can give farmers the opportunity to maintain conservation buffers, grassed waterways, filter strips and terraces on their farms, which slow down storm water as it falls on their fields. Finding tools to help farmers continue their goals of improving conservation practices on their farm is something that has always been important to us and increasingly important in the future,” says IFBF President Craig Hill.
