A variety of used farm equipment and vintage tractors will be on display at the Moultrie, Georgia agricultural show, according to the Andalusia Star News.

The second installment of the show will draw visitors from all over Covington County and will allow local residents to bring their favorite used tractors to display for all of the onlookers, the news source reported.

Event organizers saw the show as a way to teach the younger generations about the importance of agriculture, and the cultural heritage of the area.

"Anyone is welcome to bring anything they want to put up for display or look at," Tommie Burgess, the organizer of the event, told Star News. "We want everyone who will to come out and enjoy this day."

Burgess acquired a love for used farm equipment while he grew up on a farm, and the organizer for the event noted his love for his favorite John Deere M Tractor that he has devoted significant time and resources towards maintaining, according to the news source.

The John Deere M Tractor was built from 1947 to 1952 and was the first to use the company's Touch-O-Matic hydraulic system, Tractor Data reported.
