The Lyon County organization of the Flint Hills Antique Power Association, EDGE and TA #107, Emporia, Kansas, and Central States Hart Parr Oliver Collectors Association, Osage City, Kansas, will present the fifth annual Plow Day and Tractor Show at the Dale DeLong Farm, 1420 Road 210, Emporia, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 26, 27 and 28.

Antique tractors demonstrating plowing and the antique tractor and equipment show will be from 10 a.m to 4 p.m. with wheat threshing, hay baling and corn shelling demonstrations taking place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.

The wheat will be cut around the middle of June and it will be loaded onto hay wagons to be stored in a dry place until the actual threshing day on Saturday, June 27.

Events will include binding with an IHC antique grain binder, threshing with a 1922 Avery thresher and baling with a 1920 Ann Arbor Hay Press. Other equipment to be used includes Gleaner and Allis-Chalmers pull-behind combines owned by Gary Watts and a 1970 Oliver 7300 self-propelled combine owned by Dale DeLong.

Thirty to 40 antique tractors pulling antique plows will plow 50 acres of wheat stubble.

Friday will be the day to set up and test the equipment and for tractor owners to bring tractors and other equipment to show. Demonstrations will include Mark Say showing his corn shelling machine and Roy Gatewood operating his collection of hit-and-miss engines.
