2018 Farm Science Review

 The Farm Science Review is expanding their grounds in 2018 by moving the fence to include the area east of the existing fence line.  In the past, that area has been primarily agronomy demonstration plots.

In addition to selling new booth spaces, the FSR management is now making spaces available to agriculture collectors clubs such as ours.  At the recent summer meeting, the membership voted to return to the event and present a display.  Members Ed Kranz, John Yowler, and Don Kirts have volunteered to chair the project.

The space we have for our use is 100’ X 150’ in size.  Preliminary plans include having the merchandise trailer on site as well as a 20’ X 30’ red and white striped tent. 

What we need now are commitments from members to bring their restored tractors, trucks, implements, etc. to the show.  We also would like to have club members attend that are willing to help man the exhibit and work with Ellen Paul, if needed, at the merchandise trailer during the three days of the show.

One of the plans for the display is to create a line of tractors beginning with an early tractor such as an 8-16 or similar tractor and working down the line with an example of each F-series tractor, then one of each letter series and finally the number series units up to the latest tractor someone is willing to bring to the show.  There will be room for 40-50 display units, so we would like to have a good turnout.

Here is the basic information about the show and contact information to enter your unit.
