2010 Chilhowee Tractor Show

Sat Feb 26, 2011 2:37 pm

Here's the show where the "tractor bug" bit me. Four years ago, I called up an old friend who once gave me a quart of sorghum to see if he was still making it (I was looking for more). He was making sorghum at this tractor show and invited me to it. He's a Minneapolis Moline man. The show's been going on for 28 years now, held just east of Chilhowee, MO (south of Warrensburg); last weekend of September. They feature a tractor manufacturer each year; last year was Oliver.

Over the years they have built a tractor pulling track and brought in old buildings (school, church, gas station, etc.)

Here they are making sorghum. My friend is feeding the canes into the press. Ummmmm....

Glad I went to get sorghum that day. Life hasn't been the same since. :)
