This annual event was held September 15th and 16th, 1973, on the George H. Ohmann, Jr. farm as it has been for the last four years.

The site of the show is seven and one-half miles south of the Mendota bridge, just out of St. Paul, or five and one-half miles northwest of Rosemount on County roads 31 and 32.

This show is the result of the cooperation of George H. Ohman, Sr. who operates a farm adjoining the show location and his son, George H. Ohman, Jr. They are assisted by Mrs. George H. Ohman, Jr., who is secretary.

When show time comes, it is threshing time at the Ohmann farm. Grain grown has been harvested and stacked usually in two 'settings' of at least four stacks in each location. The settings are located far enough apart so that two threshing outfits can operate at the same time.

Lloyd Belden of St. Paul Park brought two of his engines to the show. One was the 50 H.P. Case he has used there other years, and the other was a 65 H.P. Case, purchased last February. With Mr. Belden were his two engineers, Gene Roggeman of Minneapolis and Ted Knack of St. Paul Park.
