Case IH is recognized as a global leader in powerful, reliable and highly efficient equipment that helps professional farmers meet the challenges of modern farming.

Chun Woytera, Senior Director of Marketing, New Holland North America adds, "New Holland is proud to support the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation. The next generation of Ag industry is inspired by the 4-H organization. We at New Holland look forward to the opportunity to cultivate a passion for agriculture starting from a young age hand-in-hand with 4-H."
“The Foundation couldn’t be more pleased with Case IH and New Holland’s support. Their generosity continues the Foundation’s mission to invest in the positive development of 4-H youth,” shares Brenda Scheider, Director of the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation. “With our strong emphasis on STEM, workplace readiness and leadership development, Wisconsin 4-H is a great fit with Case IH and New Holland Agriculture.”
As one of Wisconsin’s largest youth development organizations, Wisconsin 4-H is empowering the next generation of leaders. Since 1914, 4-H has grown from a rich history of agricultural clubs that helped the University of Wisconsin-Extension connect families to research-based advancements in farming technology and techniques. Today’s 4-H still boasts strong programs in agriculture and animal science and has grown to include science, leadership, healthy living and communications programming that will help Wisconsin youth build a healthier and more prosperous future.
The Wisconsin 4-H Foundation, based in Madison, provides essential funding for 4-H programs throughout Wisconsin. By partnering with individuals, corporations and foundations, the Foundation supports more than 150,000 youth who take part in various 4-H leadership, developments and community-building activities throughout the state.
