Mother, son make a good showing with John Deere machines during tractor pulls

Posted by Green Fun Store on 7/30/2010
Although separated by about a week, a mother and her son recently placed in tractor pulling events held in Virginia, each of them completing the feat by using a John Deere tractor.

According to the Rappahannock News, Kirk Davis took a John Deere 4440 tractor to the winner's circle during a pull put on by the Madison County Young Farmers meet. Doing so netted him a trophy and $50.

Then, eight days later, his mother Pat Davis took a John Deere tractor manufactured in 1949 to a second-place finish during the Fauquier County Antique Tractor pull. Competing in the 8,000 class, Pat lost by only one foot and, like her son, won a trophy for her efforts.

The mother-son pair represents a continued tradition among John Deere fans, as many families pass down the love of the company's tractors from generation to generation. For example, a farm family in Ohio has had a Model 110 mower through four generations.

The Scott family originally bought the machine in 1967 as a way to make taking care of their property a bit easier.ADNFCR-3425-ID-19915068-ADNFCR
