A number 3 Co-op about a 1938 model tractor was restored for this year's show by Wayne Jones, Ryder, N. Dak. The Association was able to purchase a McCormick Reaper and an Ideal hand-fed threshing machine this summer. Both these machines dating back to the 1890's had been restored by John Sandstrom, Lonetree, North Dakota. The hand-fed thresher demonstrated its ability to separate grain. The reaper was also used to cut oats. The Staude-Mak-A Tractor was used to pull the reaper. It took c, while to learn how to operate the reaper properly but with the help of several old timers, the machine did a fine job of cutting and bunching the grain.
