MORE ON TRACTOR BRIGADE IN THE PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURATION PARADE
Source: Rural Media Group news release

Themed "We The People: Our American Journey." RFD-TV invited tractor manufacturers to participate in the 2017 Presidential Inaugural Parade. Those confirmed include Case IH, Challenger, John Deere, Kioti, Kubota, Mahindra, Massey-Ferguson, and New Holland who will showcase their latest line of tractors used in modern agriculture production.

Members of the National FFA will carry the banner for the Rural Tractor Brigade and lead this contingent of colorful tractors that help make America's farmers and ranchers the most efficient food and fiber producers in the world.

On Inauguration Day, RFD-TV and RURAL RADIO will have live updates beginning at 9 a.m. ET and continue through the course of the day, with complete highlights on the Rural Evening News at 11:30 p.m. ET.

Several agriculture association leaders will drive a tractor in the parade, including Zippy Duvall, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation; Ron Moore, president of the American Soybean Association and his wife Deb; Randy Krotz, CEO of the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance; John Weber, president of the National Pork Producers Council; and Jim Odle, co-founder of Superior Livestock Auction. Also driving to represent rural media include National Association of Farm Broadcasting past and current presidents Mark Oppold and Max Armstrong, Duncan Smith of Sinclair Broadcasting, and Patrick Gottsch, founder & president of RFD-TV and RURAL RADIO on SiriusXM.

The Inaugural Parade, generally held on the afternoon of the swearing-in ceremony, is a popular part of the inaugural festivities. After the President and Vice-President have been sworn in (and after the inaugural luncheon), they typically travel down Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House, where they remain while they review the rest of the parade as it passes by. The tradition of the inaugural parade goes back to the first inauguration of George Washington, though it has changed in a variety of ways over the centuries. The event is currently coordinated by the Armed Forces Inaugural Committee in conjunction with the Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC).
