IH Tractors Plow 90 Acres In One Pass
Dennis Miesner, editor/publisher of Red Power magazine, was there to record it with aerial photos of the dirt darkening behind the swarm of tractors and plows. He ran a story and photos in the Jan./Feb. 2009 issue (www.redpowermagazine.com).
Participants came from 12 states and Canada. Tractors ranged from 1920's regular IH's to a relatively modern 88 IH. In fact, a 1985 7488 IH led the line of tractors.
"We grouped them in series," Off says, noting it took a couple of hours to line everyone up. People were on hand to record the event for a possible record.
The weekend continued with music, a bonfire/wiener roast with entertainment and more plowing - about 550 acres altogether.
People are asking for another mass plowing event, Off says. No formal plans have been made, but organizers are considering doing it again.
"It's good exercise for the old equipment. It's a lost art," says Off.
