Local High School had a drive your tractor to school day for FFA week. It was about 25 deg F this morning so only nine showed up.

The Massey 65 was the one I had been working on for the neighbor, he was real happy to have it road worthy for today.

I had a tractor day all four years of high school. I think I was about the only kid that drove an open station tractor every year. I almost had to walk my senior year from getting the tractor nearly stuck. The only way I was allowed to drive a tractor to school was to take the back roads/ minimum maintenance roads into town. That year we had a lot of snow melt going on and my poor narrow front WD Allis kept cutting a furrow and pulling mud up into the fan rather than rolling along on that min-maintenance road.

I remember our high school ag class had a tractor day in about 1965. One of the local boys had an F-12 or F-14. He lived about 10 miles from the school, and that old tractor was incredibly slow, so when he got ready to go down Campbell Hill Grade [a big looong hill in our community] he slipped it into neutral, thinking he'd make passenger train time to the bottom of the hill. The old tractor slowed to a stop.

A local story like that several years ago. Boy didn't know someone was standing by the rear duals.

Our school did that today as well and my son drove our IH 986. He was glad for a cab and heater - it was 0 F this morning with a windchill of about 15 below. The guys on the open station tractors had a chilly drive across town.

Because a combine is any different than a tractor going to town for no reason

My high school had a FFA class, and the ROTC program. It was dropped latter on. I guess it didn't fit in with the yuppie generation. Stan

We did that in FFA at highschool. We also had the muddiest truck day. We would go out the night before or that morning before school and get our trucks as muddy as we could.

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Corn in Southern Wisconsin: The Early Years - by Pat Browning. In this area of Wisconsin, most crops are raised to support livestock production or dairy herds in various forms. Corn products were harvested for grain, and for ensilage (we always just called it 'silage'). Silo Filling Time On dairy farms back in the 30's and into the first half of the 40's, making of corn silage was done with horses pulling a corn binder producing tied bundles of fresh, sweet-smelling corn plants, nice green leaves with ear; the ...
