The preview of a parade helps elementary students learn about John Deere tractors

Posted by Green Fun Store on 5/16/2011 to Current News/Events of John Deere
In Plainview, Minnesota, elementary students were given a glimpse of the farmer's life. According to the Post Bulletin, a former president of the local FFA chapter organized a tractor parade with the assistance of family members, as well as the principals of the high school and primary school. Before parading the tractors through downtown, high school students gave the younger kids a sample of the valuable farm equipment.

Parking at the elementary school, high school students allowed the younger kids to ask them questions and discuss the tractors. Examining this equipment up-close prompted many of these children to gain an interest in manufacturers like Classic John Deere. There was even a 1941 Oliver present, as well as a 2008 John Deere 7730.

"I thought it was a good turnout for the first year of this parade," Rob Sexton, the parade organizer, told the news source.

The high schoolers proceeded to Broadway Street, where they eventually parked at the St. Isidore Health Center to give residents the chance to view the equipment. Since tractors are such a large part of the local farming culture, this event was a great chance for the average residents to share their passions.
