FARMALL LAND U.S.A: Anyone going this Saturday?

Recommended Posts

My dad and I are planning a fun, little trip to Iowa this weekend. We weren’t sure what was going to be the best weekend but decided this weekend was it. Our plan at this point (early tomorrow morning I have to make a couple phone calls), is leaving late afternoon tomorrow. Then going to Red Oak Iowa first, there is a well known show pig breeder there. I meant him last Oct. with the rest of my 4-H livestock judging team on our way to a national judging contest, so we will visit him hopefully. I’m thinking we will do that Sat. Morning then head 30 or so minutes  to Avoca to FARMALL LAND and spend the afternoon there. Then come home Saturday night. 
 

My question is, are any of you going to be at FARMALL LAND this Saturday? Or or any of you close by? Since being on this forum for 2 1/2 years I’ve yet to meet any of you guys in person........ and so looking forward to it!! Can’t make it to Huron unfortunately so I was asking to see who I should look out for!

      I just saw an add in the Heritage Iron magazine,  they said to call ahead and see what might be any restrictions with this covid 19 .

Yes thank you for the heads up sir. I looked on their website and saw that. To clarify, in my first post I said I had a couple calls to make: one being to Farmall Land the other to the show pig breeder in Iowa. Just to make sure everything is set to go.  
 

This is kinda short notice we decided this would be the best weekend to go. Looking forward to it!

I 'm going later this summer, July maybe, haven't really picked a day/date. Was planning on wife going along but got informed a week ago she wants me to go SOLO. I'm making a big loop coming home by way of LaMars, iowa,  need to check out the Toy Store, and several company's in that small town. Wells Blue Bunny ice cream, and Byron's Originals. Same person created Midwest Manufacturing, maker of the Midwest wagon hoist that also created Byron's injection molding and the brand of RC nitro fuel we ran almost exclusively when SON & I raced RC. I just read on their website they stopped producing RC fuel entirely the end of May due to low demand. LI-PO battery technology actually gives longer run time and greater performance than the nitro-methane and alcohol fuel. Sad, but I want to see their plant none the less.

Visiting Farmall land was going to be one of the stops on the way to RPRU. Now, we are probably not going at all.

Great to see you go ! You will love it .

  Pictures will be great.

  Carol and I went there on way to Des Moines RPRU , Jerry was attending a funeral that morning but the docent there was great and gave us blow by blow description of anything we wanted.  There at same time were a great bunch of French Guys very friendly I spoke to several but was unaware it was French I.H., lovers that I have since got to know through the IH group. Small world!

 Breaks my heart to think of all that stuff being sold and dispersed , However, I understand needing to retire very well.

  Looking forward to hearing your prospective and pictures.

   Enjoy, Tony

I agree it would be hard to sell off all that stuff. 
 

On another note, this must be “IH weekend“ yesterday my sister and I got lunch at McDonalds and our meal number was 1206. Dad and I went for breakfast this morning and it cost 12.06. If 1206 happens one more time..... third times a charm we will come home with a 1206 correct??😀

If plans don't change I will make my first and last visit all at the same time on the way home from Red Power.  It only adds 10 miles to the trip.

Here are some pictures, total videos and photos I had were 155!! There was so much to see and hard to get pics of everything....... unless just going down the row one by one. I hope you guys enjoy I think they are decent shots 

Really more than anything I wish we could all gather together to look over all the pics, better yet go through the museum together.

this F-20 was used in the late 30’s-40’s to plant winter wheat into standing corn. This isn’t factory as I over heard. Notice the frame and planter mounted. To plant between 42 inch rows  there was also one planter between each rear wheel.

This 600 was owned by Jerry’s FIL. Jerry repainted it in the early 70’s and then bought it at his FIL’s sale in 1983..... pretty special.

Room two. Not as big but still packs a punch for what was there. Tractors, memorabilia, toys, cadets, and other items

Thank you for the pictures!

I had forgotten about the IH lawnmower. My dad had one which I pushed for a summer.  Dad's lawn mowers only lasted one season.  Dad was a farm boy who checked the oil in everything but the lawn mower.  He said it was just cheaper to buy a new one every year.  When Dad retired and thought he would mow his own yard, which he had not done in YEARS, I bought him a self propelled Snapper.  Dad thought the chore was not nearly as undesirable with a self propelled mower. 

Interesting there were no pictures of either the white or gold demonstrators.  The IH V-8's were monsters.

V8’s are awesome, very cool to see. There were actually no goldies there but only on white super C. There were lots of framed pictures there and Jerry was on some gold demos, dad and I wonder if some tractors are sifted through just for something different then go somewhere else? Maybe someone knows.
