Antique John Deere tractors are displayed at a local tractor show

Posted by Green Fun Store on 5/20/2011 to Current News/Events of John Deere
Throughout the 20th Century, Classic John Deere tractors have been a mainstay in the United States. Designing everything from battery power tractors to diesel, the major farming equipment manufacturer has become one of the most reliable brand names in the world. Because of these accomplishments, those who live in farming communities cherish John Deere tractors - at least enough to display their pride in traditions. In Dyersburg, Tennessee, Deere antiques were recently displayed at the Shade Tree Tractor Club's Plow Day event.

According to The Gazette, a 1931 John Deere GPWT tractor was unveiled during the tractor show. The owner of this tractor, Joe Richardson, purchased this tractor that has been through at least seven different states, including the Long Island area. The tractor's previous owners, who are from Illinois, were present at the Shade Tree Tractor Club's unveiling ceremony.

On the morning of April 9th, the event opened like a baseball game with the national anthem and Lord's Prayer. The main attraction of the event was the actual plowing, which started at 9 a.m.
