Kass noted that the number of people who came to see his collection were interested in the progression of technology, as they made their way through his equipment, often with a dropped jaw due to the variety of machines that he had on display.

The used farm equipment that Kenny Kass owns had people from the agricultural industry drooling at the Agricultural Machinery Conference in Dunkerton, Iowa, the Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier reported.

According to the news outlet, the used John Deere equipment represented the history of the sector, but also shed light on the progress that has been made by companies as they continue to provide farmers with the tools they need for their line of work.

Kass noted that the number of people who came to see his collection were interested in the progression of technology, as they made their way through his equipment, often with a dropped jaw due to the variety of machines that he had on display.

"I really enjoy talking about them, having and preserving them," Kass told the Courier. "The problem is I'm still farming and not open like a museum. But I'm glad people in town can (occasionally) come out and learn about ag history."

The Agricultural Machinery Conference is held each year in Waterloo, Iowa, and allows agricultural engineers to come together to celebrate the sector and educate each other on the latest advances in the industry.
