John Deere And Farm Rescue Parnter to Help Farmers by Hosting Virtual Concert Dec. 9 at 7 p.m. CST A free livestreamed concert on YouTube at 7 p.m. CST, Wednesday, Dec. 9 will help raise funds for suffering farmers and ranchers.

The event is a joint effort between John Deere and Farm Rescue.

Laurel Caes, technology and innovation public relations manager for John Deere, said the purpose is to support farmers.

Caes was recently interviewed by Radio Oklahoma Agriculture Network Associate Farm Director and Editor KC Sheperd.

We have partnered with Farm Rescue and we are hosting The Farm Must Go On by John Deere virtual benefit concert, she said.

During a year like 2020 folks have really recognized the importance of farmers and the fact their food doesn’t come from the back of the grocery store, Caes said.

We want to honor the perseverance of farmers and the challenges they face throughout the year, she said.

Farm Rescue has been around 15 years and their primary purpose is to help farmers when they are suffering from an injury, illness or natural disaster that prohibits them from working on the farm, she said.

The five performers are Dustin Lynch, Maddie and Tae, Mickey Guyton, Travis Denning, and Tyler Farr.

Supporting farmers fit right in with what these guys are all about, Caes said.
