John Axthelm of Cardington with a Case tractor he displayed at Farm Days. The Case tractor was the theme tractor this year John has 250 Case tractors (some in pieces). They go as far back as one from 1920. He displayed five at Farm Days a 1930 being the oldest and a 1953 the newest. He likes Case because they are “unique.” He said Case was merged with International Harvester in 1977. John has been a member of the Morrow County Antique Tractor and Equipment Association for 25 years. Farm Days highlights and more photos will appear in next week’s Sentinel.
