RDO Caters Taters for Charity is possible because of goods, services, and dollars donated by generous companies that support the event year after year. We’re pleased to highlight this year’s Hot Potato sponsors with special features here on the blog. Read to find out more about one of our Dining Room sponsors, Valley® Irrigation, including how the company’s mission aligns with that of this year’s benefiting charity, Great Plains Food Bank. Valley Irrigation On more than 35 types of crops and approximately 25 million acres in 90 countries worldwide – in a nutshell, that’s where Valley Irrigation products are used. The company provides center pivot and linear irrigation equipment and remote management solutions used on farms around the globe, including in Minnesota and North Dakota. Go for a drive through the F-M area’s rural communities and, especially to the east, there’s a good chance of spotting a Valley Irrigation pivot in a farm field. In addition to providing equipment to irrigate crops, Valley Irrigation also offers smart irrigation solutions that help growers manage their machines, keeping them connected to the fields from anywhere in the world via smartphone, tablet, or desktop computer. Valley Irrigation offers its irrigation solutions through its network of dealers; one of those dealers in Minnesota and North Dakota is MVI, a company under the R.D. Offutt Company umbrella. Valley Irrigation has worked closely with R.D. Offutt Company on many projects in the past and chose to sponsor RDO Caters Taters this year for the second consecutive year. Feeding the World This year, sponsoring RDO Caters Taters has a little extra meaning for Valley Irrigation, a division of Valmont Industries, because of the benefiting charity, Great Plains Food Bank. “One of the things on which Valley Irrigation prides itself is our role in feeding the world,” Rich Panowicz, Vice President, North American Sales, said. Because Valley Irrigation pivots and technology are designed to help growers do more with less and irrigate a variety of crops, the company’s mission is similar to Great Plains Food Bank’s, wanting to do its part to ensure the availability of quality, nutritious food for everyone. “We’re 10,000 employees proudly working to feed 7.6 billion people,” he added. Not only does Great Plains Food Bank’s mission tie in with a focus of Valley Irrigation, Panowicz says the partnership between R.D. Offutt Company and Valley Irrigation is important, and he is proud of the role Valley plays in sponsoring the RDO Caters Taters event.
