The oat box and the straw pile seemed to be the biggest
attraction to the kids, and did they ever have fun in them.
Pictured is a Bullock creeping grip tractor 12-20. It will be
running real soon. I have been working on it for several years.
This tractor was owned by my father, Aaron W. Good, and the
engine was built during the winter of 1916 and was delivered in the
spring of 1917 and was my father's first gasoline tractor.
Previous to this, he was plowing with a 20 HP cross compound Reeves
steam engine and a Reeves steam lift plow.
The Bullock tractor pulled three plows. It had no gear shift and
it traveled 2? miles per hour in each direction. This tractor did
the plowing on 330 acres and at times it was operated in two shifts
day and night, so the crops could be gotten in on time.
We would be interested in hearing from anyone that ever owned a
Walter Male, Urexei, Missouri and his gas engines and
grindstone. Ross ivlaler, Platte City, Missouri sharpening his
knife on the grindstone. The two men at rear are my brothers Chas.
and Verl Moss. They are talking to my wife, Sara.
At the end of the day the attendance was totaled at about 1200
people. To sum it all up I'd say it was a day of memories for
the old and a day to remember for the younger. The club was real
pleased with how it went and are looking forward to the 1973 show.
We hope to give our next show the first part of August because of
weather conditions in the Northwest area. All proceeds from the
show will go toward putting on a bigger and better show next year.
A two day show is planned.
