“Our Association is pleased to host this annual event. As with past years, we expect a diversified show of vintage farm tractors and equipment of every conceivable brand on display. There will also be a variety of related attractions for the entire family,” stated Earl Smith, CAFMA President.
This year’s event will include the 2010 State Club Show for the Massey-Harris / Ferguson Club of Ohio. The storied history of this agriculture equipment dates back to 1847 when Daniel Massey founded his company in Newcastle, Ontario, Canada.
