Martin the show never was that much into tractors and such. It is what the name says " Stock Show". Why would you expect there to be a good antique tractor show there???
I used to have registered Hereford cattle. We went about every other year. I do not remember there being antique tractors there?
Plus who in their right mind is going to walk around in late January outside to look at tractors. I from a cold state and I would not spend my time looking at them outside.
Plus guys I hate to really burst your bubble but most of the tractors shown are not that rare. So how is that going to compete with livestock that very well maybe the best in the world???
I go to stock shows to look at livestock. I go to old equipment shows to look at old tractors.
Just my thoughts. I am not sure that either decision will make much difference. The stock show is going to have world class cattle and horses there. That is the important thing.
