Dairy Collectibles on Display

Dairy collectibles, horse-drawn equipment and more at Tulare, California, antique farm equipment show.

Farm workers who milked in Central Valley dairies often built their own milking stools. This well-used model features a clever tightening device, leather patches and a belt. “You couldn’t make the belt tight or you couldn’t sit down,” collector Joe Pedro says. “You had to keep it loose.”
