A Non-Stop Struggle: How a John Deere dealership expects supply chain disruptions to continue

At least two more years of supply chain disruptions is what one southern Illinois ag equipment dealer is prepared for.

The CEO of the John Deere dealership says the biggest problem right now is the unknown, between issues with labor, transportation and the war in Ukraine. Prices for used equipment, if you can find it, are through the roof. That has taken a toll on the business, like many others.

The family-run dealership is celebrating their 100th anniversary this year and they already believe it will be a non-stop struggle from here on out.
