Default Ploughing At Milton's Steam Era Show

The Milton, Ontario Steam Era show is being held on Labour Day weekend, 2019, at Hume's Auction Farm at 9313 Fourth Line, Milton, ON L9T 2X9, north of Milton, Ontario:

A friend asked if I could post that the plans are to do some heavy duty ploughing using an 8-bottom engine gang plough pulled by a 30-60 Model E Rumely, a 35-70 Minneapolis tractor, and possibly a Sawyer-Massey and other traction engines.
This new location for the show for this year offers plenty of open ground for activities such as this ploughing.
Sounds like it will be a lot of fun.

Hopefully the organizers of the plowing will have the plough set up to work good in the clay soil conditions that we have in this area and then their is the chance it could rain and then it will be like plowing soup

The boys had the wheels slipping on the big Oilpull last year at Goessel. That gumbo is nasty, wet or dry, dry at least affords some traction then here come the boulders.

Yes, I remember those shows. They were great get-togethers at the Hume Family farm. Lots to see, good food, good music.

Little knowledge of ploughing, or anything for that matter, but I can help lift levers. Want to join me on the deck?

That will be up to the drivers. We are just innocent lambs following orders.
