National winner on exhibit
Devin Haywood of Hastings stands next to the Farmall tractor that took national reserve champion in the Delo Tractor Restoration Competition in October 2018 in Indianapolis. A long-time 4-H and FFA member and upcoming freshman at MSU, Haywood has restored three tractors on his own, all of them Farmalls. Other antique tractors – including more Farmall, John Deere, Case, Ford, Oliver, Minneapolis Moline and others – can be viewed at the fairgrounds this week. Visitors also may see demonstrations, such as blacksmithing, corn-shelling, wood cutting, tractor games and more in the antique tractors area on the southwest corner of the fairgrounds.
