Tractor show brings big crowd to Howe Farmstead

By Monty Thompson/KVOE News

The tractor demonstration originally slated to take place during the Lyon County Fair was held Sunday afternoon at the Historic Richard Howe Farmstead.

Dozens of classical tractors of several makes and models lined the pasture as area residents flocked in to observe the pieces of machinery.

Flint Hills Antique Power Association Board of Directors member Ron Webb says whether the tractors are remodeled or not, most have a special meaning for the owner.

A new attraction in recent years has been the operation of a hay thrasher and stationary baler throughout the course of the day.

The demonstration was originally postponed due to stormy conditions.
