Daily Crow: Farming the way it used to be done

fair-rooster-091For 42 years there has been an antique farm machinery exhibit at the Kenosha County Fair.

That’s a long time. But much of the equipment in this display will be considerably older.

Some of the machinery you might see includes:

  • Old-fashioned pitcher pump to draw water.
  • Roper maker, with which you can make you own sample to take home.
  • Old tractors, including John Deere, Allis Chalmers and Farmall models.

Looking over these machines of yesteryear is interesting. But if you have a piece of farm related equipment to display there’s still time to do that too. Contact Bill Herreid at 862-7660 or kcf_machinery@yahoo.com.

The antique farm machinery exhibit is located just inside the Kenosha County fair main gate on the north end of the fairgrounds.
