Yesterday’s Farmers had the raffle ticket drawing for our annual tractor or cash prize on Saturday Nov. 9, 2019 at the grounds on the west edge of Bowman.
This is the 18th year of the tractor or cash raffle. The winner this year had their choice of a 1953 Farmall Super C tractor, a 1952 John Deere Model 40 tractor, a 1953 Massey Harris Model 33 tractor or $1,000.00 cash. Les Schaefer, a retired farmer, from Rhame, ND was our winner for 2019. Les chose to take the 1952 John Deere Model 40 tractor. He bought his raffle tickets at the Yesterday’s Farmers show in September.
Yesterday’s Farmers was started in 1981 and is a group of about 40 members. Our primary purpose is to preserve the history of farming from the early days until present. Our collection of restored tractors and machinery gives the up coming generations a chance to see how farming used to be done. We have an annual threshing bee and other demonstrations of antique equipment each year the weekend after Labor Day each year. We thank all who purchased tickets in support of Yesterday’s Farmers.
