I took my Cub Cadet 100 and 107 with plows as they were going to have some plowing available to do. This was a new thing for them this year to try. Turned out that the ground was to stoney and with the rolling hills it didnt work out well with the garden tractors. The big tractors did ok but they didnt work at it too long till they quit.
We also took our Farmalls M, H, 340D, B, and Cub as well as my Case RC and our JD A. While running the JD on the dynamometer I was approached about running the corn shredder. Since the A is restored and I didn't want to chance the belt jumping off and scuffing the side of the grill tin I said I would do it if I could use our M as it still wears its work clothes. They said yes and I got her and hooked her up and we ground up some corn.
It was nice to spend the entire weekend there with my parents. They have a 5th wheel camper and we spend the weekend at the show. I missed the show last year due to the flood we had and the year before I only got one day in at it as my wifes family had an emergency and I had to leave.
The turnout was not as good as usual this year but even with the rain threat we mangaed to pull in 836 registered tractors and 9 steam traction engines. Normally the tractor number is around 1,000. One year we had nearly 1300 when they featured JD. The feature this year was Oliver and they had some very nice examples of them there. The only pictures I got were a few shots of the M in the corn grinder and a few shots of one of the steam engines running the threshing machine.
Hope you enjoy.
