For the past 32 years the Southeast South Dakota Thresherman’s Association has carried on the tradition of old-fashioned farming with an annual Threshing show at the Goeman Auction Grounds, located one mile north of Lennox on Hwy. 17.
This year’s show features Oliver, White and Cockshutt tractors and farm equipment. The Association is welcoming the Great Plains Oliver collectors to the show this year, and welcoming back the Good Ol’ Plow Boys. All makes and exhibits are welcome, including antique vehicles. There is no charge for admission.
The threshing show begins Friday, August 5th with a tractor ride to Lynn and Aggie Kruger’s farm to see their Oliver collection. Everyone is welcome to go for a ride, which will be approximately nine miles round trip. Tractors will leave from the Goeman Auction Grounds at 5:30 p.m.
