The Dodge County Fairgrounds at Beaver Dam, Wisconsin was the site of an interesting gathering of Massey-Harris collectors and their machines last August 1 and 2. The Dodge County Antique Power Club put on its 24th annual show at the fairgrounds and the featured attraction was Massey-Harris, Wallis and Massey-Ferguson tractors and equipment.

The Dodge County group's show was very successful, with a record number of exhibitors (about 260) from all over Wisconsin. There were also exhibitors from Illinois, Minnesota, Michigan, North Dakota, and Washington. General attendance was about 3300, rain showers Sunday morning held down numbers a little but still a nice crowd.

All weekend, winter wheat was threshed with two separators using both steam and gas power. There were also treasure hunts for the kids in the straw pile.



Plenty of logs were sawed at the sawmill, under the supervision of sawyer Marvin Rustad of Cottage Grove, Wisconsin.

Red cedar logs were converted into shingles at the shingle mill which was powered by an Oil Pull, both owned by Rudy Schmied of Watertown.
