John Deere was among companies attending the 2019 Ag Media Summit and International Federation of Ag Journalists conference in Minneapolis.
“John Deere definitely sees a value for us to support ag journalists worldwide, and so with the international folks here, as well, this year, it’s just important for us to be here and to talk to them about what’s going on in the ag economy and meet with journalists and show our support for what they do all over the world,” said Laurel Caes, John Deere’ public relations manager supporting North American agriculture.
Caes said it was fascinating to talk with people from all over the world, where cultures differ as do advancements in technology and engineering. She fielded unique questions about agriculture in the United States, as well as some questions specific to farm tours offered during the conference.
Caes said John Deere is looking forward to the fall farm show season, including a presence at the upcoming Farm Progress Show in Illinois.
