DODGE CITY, Kan. — George and LaDonna Brown’s love of the green and yellow led them down a 20+ year road of working on antique John Deere tractors. They also worked on a few antique McCormick Deering Internationals. Work on these antique tractors has been meticulous, working on each one from the frame up. LaDonna is well-versed on the history of each tractor and says every tractor has a story to tell. As the Browns approach their 60th wedding anniversary, they have decided to plow a new row, which includes parting with these special tractors that have been a huge part of their lives. Being a part of the 3i SHOW for the past 5 years, George and LaDonna felt it only appropriate to host their antique tractor auction at the 63rdAnnual 3i SHOW being held October 12-14, 2017.
The Browns have displayed their tractor collection in various tractor shows across the Midwest from Oklahoma to Nebraska. They have particularly enjoyed the tractor games at shows. When the tractors are not on display, they are kept tucked away in a dark storage building, away from the effects of light and dust, so that these tractors will last a long time.
Carr Auction & Real Estate of Larned, Kansas, will be conducting the auction of 12 John Deere tractors ranging from a 1929 Model D to a 1960 830 with many models in between, a John Deere 10’ Grain Binder with show canvases and Binder Twine, as well as an EZ-GO customized golf cart with an umbrella. Three McCormick Deering International tractors will also be auctioned off. The auction will be held at noon on Saturday, October 14, in the dirt side of the Western State Bank Expo Arena. Online Proxi-Bids will coincide with live, on-site bidding. Contact Carr Auction & Real Estate, Inc., at 620-285-3148 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The collection will be on display during the 3i SHOW beginning October 12. The collection can also be viewed online at www.carrauction.com as well as the 3i SHOW Facebook page event listing.
