The line-up this year included 22 tractors ranging in size from a Deere 4650 to an Allis Chalmers "B", and 11 pickups. Mike Shertzer, co-advisor to the group, told FARM SHOW that "the event demonstrates to the school and community the importance and sophistication of modern agriculture."
Besides the equipment line-up, the FFA'ers also put together a report, announced over the school's P.A. system, explaining the equipment investment and how it relates to the local community.
