The seventh annual Eagan Steam Threshing Show drew a good sized crowd of interested people on September 13 and 14, 1975.

The show site is on the George H. Ohmann, Jr. farm which is northwest of Rosemount, Minnesota, and seven and one-half miles south of the Mendota Bridge. The show dates turned out to be clear beautiful days with the temperature soaring to the 70's.

Show time is threshing time at the Ohmann farms. South of the show area is the adjoining farm owned by George H. Ohmann, Sr.

Mr. Ohmann's father purchased this farm and moved onto it the year George H. Ohmann, Sr. was born. It has been his home ever since. His son, Marvin, assists him with the farm operation.

Each year two settings of oat stacks are threshed. The yield runs to hundreds of bushels and is hauled in trucks to galvanized storage bins located in the show area. After threshing is done, the straw is baled.
