Tractor History

TRACTOR HISTORY
At first glance, the International Harvester logo plastered on a sign on State Road 44 pointing to a nearby museum is just a black-colored 'H' with a giant red dotted 'i' in the middle.

To farmers and anyone well familiar with the tractor model, they know the 'H' symbolizes the back of the wheels and axle of a tractor. And the lower part of the 'i,' the body of the tractor; and the dot of the 'i,' the driver's head.

The old-timers were hard at work plowing and picking on Tuesday at Husker Harvest Days.

At one of the largest farm shows in the world, with the latest technology in farm equipment, these old-timers were busy showing why their equipment was the talk of the farm community back in the day.

For example, Marcellus Wall of Aurora had his 1936 McCormick-Deering diesel tractor out working the fields on Tuesday, the opening day of the show.
