I met Wendell Horney at the John Deere antique tractors at the Farm Progress Show from this area. We talked about that my dad and his partner owned ground around this area, the Ives place in particular close to him.
Have fun plowing. I hope it pulls easier than some of the ground at Rantoul. A friend brought at strong 830 rice up with big tires and a 4 bottom plow. He was over in the wheat stubble in low gear with the front end coming off the ground. Our ground is probably going to pull extremely hard as dry as it is.
