Tractor Ploughing

Since the original wager in 1912 using horses to pull the plough, classes have been introduced to accommodate the evolvement of the petrol-diesel engine.

Today we have classes from the smallest horticultural garden tractor which the ploughman walks behind to the large Does and modern computerised 4 wheel drive tractors.

The Vintage classes for tractor manufactured pre 1959 are very popular. Competitors also compete for the best turned out working vintage and static tractor.
