Farmall Cub Club

Postby Brandon Webb » Tue Feb 11, 2014 12:11 am

Saw this on EBay

Does anyone know if there might be some sort of archives for the fair where there might possibly be some pictures of this event? Cub go round and the card says the card holder has operated a cub. Makes you wonder how many people demo'd a cub if the card is number 63,000.

There's a picture of a "Farmall Cub Club" display in the January 1948 Harvester World magazine, in an article about IH's involvement at state and county fairs. You can find it on the IH archives website. Nothing real specific though.

Let us pray for farmers and all who prepare the soil for planting, that the seeds they sow may lead to a bountiful harvest.

Start reading page 18 (link below) about the Chicago Fair, then it continues on page 20 about the Farmall Cub Club--a promotional campaign to expose children and families alike to IH farm tractors. Good PR to hook the kids. 8)
