This week, the nation’s top farm machinery engineers will discuss the latest advancements in farm machinery as part of the 2013 Agricultural Machinery Conference in Waterloo, IA. But first, they will take a look back at the machinery made decades ago.
On day one of this three-day conference, engineers are taking a self-guided tour at Antique Acres, an antique tractor museum in rural Cedar Falls. The museum holds old-time and valuable collections of farm machinery. Founded in 1964, Antique Acres is best known for its yearly Old Time Power Show in August, where you can view all kinds of farming equipment, from antique garden tractors to powerful steam engines.
If you haven’t been to the museum yet, here are some snapshots of what you’ll see on display.
