The Northeast Nebraska Threshers Reunion was held September 26 and 27, 1970, at the Wm. J. Mayberry farm East of Niobrara, Nebraska, with most of the work load on Mr. Mayberry. The weather was perfect and large enthusiastic crowds attended both days. There was steam engines, both large and small. Gas and oil tractors, gasoline engines, horses and ponies, antique cars, machinery and trucks added to the show.

There were parades each day. There was sawmill operating and steam plowing with 8-19' J. D. independent beam plow and horsepower threshing with six teams of horses on the horsepower hooked up to a Nichols and Shepard hand feed, web stacker thresher that stole the show while operating.



There was a toss-up as to who came the furtherest with their scale model steam engine. Mr. and Mrs. Carl Meyer of DuBois, Nebraska, in southeast part of the state with his Advance or Edd Jacobs of Clay Center, Kansas, and his nice Buffalo Pitts or Emil Bradenhoop of Kensington, Kansas, with his Case. There were other small scale engines and they were always busy each day doing their stuff.

The gasoline engine display was larger this year than ever before 15 hp. size on down and some operated all day, each day. The gas tractor department was represented by Caterpillar 20 x 30 Fordson, Aultman-Taylor, 10 ton Holt, Flour City Oil Puller, Avery and several other makes.
