These photos were taken at our annual antique tractor 'Plowing Day' on August 14, 1993. Our first Plowing Day was held in 1980 and had three tractors present. This year, we had over 40 tractors and eight Belgian horses participating! We plowed 60-plus acres in five hours. It was an enjoyable day for both participants and spectators. Some participants brought tractors and horses from a distance of 35 miles. The following types of tractors were represented: Silver King, Allis-Chalmers, Ford, Case, John Deere, Massey-Harris, International Harvester, and Minneapolis-Moline. However, there were more Case than any other kind.
