Farming methods have varied over the course of our country's history, as technology has led to improved agricultural innovation. Though there has been considerable progress, certain groups have stuck to equipment that has been proven to last.
One group of farmers, the Coshocton County Antique Power Association (CCAPA), has worked to keep the farming methods of the older generations alive. The organization will host its fourth annual summer show as a way to teach new farmers about the more traditional ways to cultivate crops, according to the Zanesville Times Recorder.
The annual CCAPA show will feature tractors from around the country that will be used in the two-day show that is held at the fairgrounds. Though several brands will be represented, members of the organization may choose to stick with their favorite models, the news source reported.
"I'm a John Deere man, and I'll be bringing John Deere," Sam Wyler, secretary for the CCAPA, told the Recorder. "All makes are a little bit different from one another.
Several models will be represented in the fair, but individuals may consider the 100 series model of the John Deere mowers as a product that can help to maintain lawns, complete with 20 available attachments, according to the company website.
