Details for 2018's show! 
Some stories may be longer than others, but every tractor has a story.  As a child, I sat on my grandfather's lap on this Model 60 to bale hay.  The tractor has been a fixture on the farm for decades and is showing its years of hard work and dedication.  Join us in 2018 as this tractor starts the next chapter in its story and tell us your story. The Waterloo Boys are collecting the stories of tractors to present at John Deere 2018 and we want to hear YOURS!  
Stories can be submitted to show committee chairman, Jesse Knaub, at [email protected]
