100th Anniversary of the Farmall

Your mission, should you choose to accept it

The RPRU committee and Howard Raymond are planning a very special Farmall Centennial Celebration. This event will commence June 15, 2023 at Grand Island Nebraska and the Grand Finale will at Iowa Red Power Roundup in 2024. A yearlong Celebration of the Farmall Tractor. We will kick this off at the 2023 Red Power Roundup with a Display of the Seven Generations of the Farmall which will be assembled in the climate controlled Heartland Event Center. Nebraska Chapter 12 Invites You to participate in this once in a lifetime event.

A list of what Howard would like

  • Farmall Regular, painted gray, or original
  • Farmall A,B,C,H,M Cub, and Supers
  • Farmall hundred series, 100, 200, 300, 400, 130, 230, 350, 450
  • Farmall 460, 560, 140, 240, 340
  • Farmall 504,706, 806
  • Farmall 656, all 56 and 66 series.
  • 300 Utility to tie in with the Current Farmall Utility line making seven generations and completing the circle
  • Any tractors with Cultivators or other mounted equipment designed for the Farmall would be very desirable.
  • Mounted cornpickers, any generation
  • Any signage or promotional materials to highlight these items
  • Additional ideas from You

This will be our showcase display and will be the Feature and Focus that other displays will spring from.

These exhibits will need to be in place in the building by 4 pm on Wednesday June 14 and will remain there until Saturday afternoon. Steel wheeled tractors will need to be here Tuesday.

Thanks for your time, I will be looking forward to seeing what you can bring for this legacy display.
