5st Annual Western Illinois Threshers Show

The 51st annual Western Illinois Treshers show wrapped up today with hundreds coming out to check out the antique tractors.

John Deere tractors were the 2018 featured tractor brand, honoring the 100th year of the popular line.

Organizers said antique tractors were fan favorites and must see displays. 

"Anybody that has an antique tractor they wanna show can show up here the first full weekend in august and unload, register it, parade it and play games, we have tractor games, we plow," said Western Illinois Threshers President Ed Hartweg, "if you have an antique tractor and you wanna show it off, bring it out, we’ll take it."

The featured tractor of the show was the John Deere 530. Hundreds of students also go to see the historical demonstrations like corn grinding and sheep shearing.
