Some of the beautiful and intricate models on display in Miniaturel and at the Le Sueur County Pioneer Power Show.

The 13th annual LeSueur County Association Threshing Show was held August 22, 23, & 24, 1986 at the club's showgrounds located 6 miles east of LeSueur, Minnesota.

Once again, the show was termed 'a success', with the number of gas engines, tractors, and steam engine exhibits up from a year ago.

Our ever popular 'Miniatureland', headed up by John Barklow Sr. and his son, John Jr. of St. Peter, Minnesota, has added another building to accommodate the increasing number of model gas and steam engines. Compressed air is piped into the buildings so that many of the models are running. This year Miniatureland included 85 model gas engines, 20 model steam engines, equipment and building models, and over 400 toys. We are proud to have one of the largest model exhibits of any show.

Eighteen acres of oats and winter wheat were threshed using 5 different machines, from a hand feed type to the large wing feeder type. New for 1986 was the use of a wooden 4 roll Rosenthal corn shredder. The Advance Rumely clover huller got the dust blown out of it for the first time this year. Also new for 1986 was cultivating corn with horses. After the grain shocks were picked up around the 1st of August, a small field was plowed and planted to corn so that by show time the corn plants were several inches tall and could be cultivated with horses. Earlier planted corn was cut during the show with a corn binder and used for cutting silage and shredding.
