Ag Parts First, LLC is owned and operated by Jerry Stair. Jerry started out working at his father's Oliver dealership, Shearer Farm Inc., back in the 1970's. Throughout the years, the dealership grew to be the #1 parts volume dealer for White-New Idea in the eastern United States. In the late 1980's we acquired the John Deere franchise. In need of a parts manager at the Deere store, Jerry moved from selling parts for Oliver Green to John Deere green. After the dealership changed ownership, Jerry took a job that was offered to him by the neighboring John Deere ag & Case construction dealership to manage the parts in their 2 stores. After an untimely death of the owner, and an opportunity to come back home at a Case-IH-New Idea dealer, Jerry took the parts manager's job and started selling the red parts. In 2004, Seeing an opportunity to do what he has done all his life, selling parts, and doing it out of his home, Jerry purchased Rick's Agri Parts from his brother and that is the beginning of Ag Parts First, LLC.
