In the mix of shiny new tractor paint, well-polished tires and technology gadgets sits a display that stopped baby boomers, gen X, millennials or even iGen—antique and vintage tractors.

On a visit to Agrishow in Brazil there was a display of antique and vintage tractors. The infatuation with agriculture history is not only something felt here in the U.S., it is also something that transcends countries and even continents.

The tractors came from private collections that stretched from the U.S., to Italy and Sweden, to Brazil.

About the Author(s)

Mindy Ward

Editor, Missouri Ruralist

Mindy resides on a small farm just outside of Holstein, Mo, about 80 miles southwest of St. Louis.

After graduating from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a bachelor’s degree in agricultural journalism, she worked briefly at a public relations firm in Kansas City. Her husband’s career led the couple north to Minnesota.

There, she reported on large-scale production of corn, soybeans, sugar beets, and dairy, as well as, biofuels for The Land. After 10 years, the couple returned to Missouri and she began covering agriculture in the Show-Me State.

“In all my 15 years of writing about agriculture, I have found some of the most progressive thinkers are farmers,” she says. “They are constantly searching for ways to do more with less, improve their land and leave their legacy to the next generation.”

Mindy and her husband, Stacy, together with their daughters, Elisa and Cassidy, operate Showtime Farms in southern Warren County. The family spends a great deal of time caring for and showing Dorset, Oxford and crossbred sheep.
