Three ways Peterson Stampede and Ram help farmers and ranchers.

They’re certified.

There’s a difference between straw and hay. Thoroughbreds and drafts. Apples and oranges.

Unlike some other truck companies, Ram won’t try and convince you that Holstein calves come from Longhorn mommas. What they are going to do is fulfill the promise they made during a little football game called the Super Bowl a couple of years ago. Your Ram Certified Agriculture Dealership is far different than any other truck dealer out there.

Ram and Peterson Stampede know what you need as an American farmer or rancher is far different than what other businesses, and families need. Not just what you need in a new truck, but what you need after the truck is not so new. They are not ranchers or farmers, but they have made the investment to know who you are. To know what is important to you…and when it is important.

As a Ram Certified Agriculture Dealership, Peterson Stamped Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram, can offer our farming and ranching customers a little something extra when they purchase from us. Available exclusively at our dealership, the Ram AgPack is a powerful package of farm and ranch management tools worth more than $5,000.

Mobile solutions

Ram is putting a package of farm and ranch management tools on the hood of every new Ram truck. From drones that gather data, to predictive analysis software using that data, to nutrients you need for bigger profits. Peterson Stampede Dodge has added another component to the Ram AgPack package that no other dealership offers. It is called Mobile Solution.

New vehicles include a number of on board computers that are dedicated to performing specific tasks. Automakers will periodically release software updates to improve emissions, fuel economy, drive-ability, performance, or bugs in the original software that have caused warranty issues. During harvest or calving season, it may be difficult to leave the ranch or farm. This is where Mobile Solutions comes in handy.

They come to you, so you can stay on task. Peterson Stampede is the first in the Treasure Valley to offer such a service, and they believe it is the simplest and most convenient way to perform software updates and recalls. The process is simple: give them a call at 208) 475-2955 or email mobilesolutions@petersoncars.com to make your appointment.

AG in the classroom

The Ram Certified Agriculture Dealership program is endorsed by the National Agriculture in the Classroom cooperative. In 1985, then Secretary of Agriculture John Block asked a group of elementary students where food came from. Without hesitation, the students replied that food came from grocery stores. Secretary Block went back to USDA in Washington and initiated the Agriculture in the Classroom project to help our Nation’s young people understand the real source of their food and fiber, and the system that brings it to their tables.

Since then, agriculture groups in each state have launched programs to help students increase their knowledge of the food and fiber of their state, thus enabling them to make intelligent decisions as consumers, voters, and eventually, as public leaders. Idaho Ag in the Classroom is a cooperative effort between the USDA, Idaho State Department of Agriculture, University of Idaho, agribusiness, commodity groups, farm organizations, farmers, ranchers, and educators across the state.

There’s a difference between straw and hay. Thoroughbreds and drafts. Apples and oranges. There is a difference between automobile dealerships. The Ram Certified Agriculture program is Peterson’s way of setting themselves apart from the herd, and offering you a little something extra. This program was designed by agriculture, for agriculture.
