Annual plow days held

This was the fourth year the Dave and Barb Kalsem have hosted the plow day near Cambridge. They had six tractors participate to plow a 14-acre field. Several spectators stopped in to watch. Barb said one spectator saw the plows from Interstate 35 and drove over to watch the event.

“It’s a nostalgic event. Farmers don’t plow their fields any more, so this is an opportunity for these antique tractor owners to come out and use their tractors and plows.”
