lot. They are:

Allis-Chalmers 7020 / Minneapolis-Moline M5 Propane / Case
2594 /
John Deere 4555 / Versatile 875 / Massey-Ferguson 4900

The tractors on the other side were:
Farmall B / Oliver Super 77 diesel / Oliver 1800 Diesel /
John Deere 3020 Diesel / Case-IH 8950 / Sheppard Diesel SD-4
/ Farmall Super M Diesel / Minneapolis-Moline UB Special /
Case 830 Diesel / Farmall 1206 / John Deere 4255 / Our 4430
/ and a 4440. Our School has an enrollment of just 250.
We have one of the biggest Tractor days in the state of
Illinois. (Or at least they say so.) This was one of our
bad years. We usually have 25 or 30 tractors.
Re: Another Tractor Day Picture
nice 4430. Was this tractor day for FFA? My High School
in Wisconsin didn't do that this year.........or any other
year, my friend that goes to school in the next county over
had a tractor day at her High School, so she drove a Ford
6600 to school. It'd be nice having a tractor day, but
there's only like 100 FFA members and only half of them
farm, everyone else are preps and jocks, and would go crying
to the school board saying they had to park their sports car
next to a tractor that spelt like shit, just like they do if
they park by one of our Ford 250's or Chevy 2500's,but they
avoide us they know we're 3 times bigger and better then
them, and our FFA advisor wants something for the students
who don't live on farm to do also. We have FFA week where we
can wear our carharrt jackets in school, have a bale toss,
and peddel tractor races, and we're going to have a parade
in town for celibrating FFA being around for 75 years, so
whoever has a tractor made up until the 60's can drive it in
the parade, so we'll have some really nice tractors, and
some that someone just pulled out of the weeds by their shed
and got it working.
Re: Another Tractor Day Picture
In Central Illinois we have a tractor day for our FFA, but
we only have 40 some members in our chapter. We only have a
high school enrollment of 250 but we still manage to have a
tractor day. There are only usually 9 or 10 tractors there a
year and all of them are usually Deeres. Which 5 or so of
them are usually 4440s the rest older 20 series. We all park
right next to the school, so everyone has to park right next
to us, which is usually great listening to them complain.
But during the normal day when we all come in, the FFA
members park next to the AG room, and walk in the back door,
where as everyone else has to walk in the normal door about
600 feet farther from where we walk in, and if we see an
"outsider" either park in our spots, or come in the back
door they usually Duct tape on them or on their windshield
warning them....and no one ever says anything back. Maybe
its because we have half of the football team are hicks!!!!
Re: Another Tractor Day Picture
What is FFA? I wish they had tractor-days in Europe.
Re: Another Tractor Day Picture
FFA use to stand for Furture Farmers of America,but I
think it was in the 80's or so they changed it to The
National FFA Oranization. FFA is part of your ag classes,
you learn stuff in the class room and then you put that
towards FFA which would help you get a good career. In FFA
you learn many skills, like problem solving, leadership
skills, ect. Then you can take animals and projects to the
fair, that's just a small area I'm talking about there's
many more things about FFA. See what Ryan and Chris have to
add for that.

everytime he knows that the busdriver will check the
