Steamer Plowing Demonstration
The wide open fertile prairie surrounding Threshermen’s Park is the setting for the largest plowing demonstration in the country, and it happens every September at the James Valley Threshing Show In Andover, SD. It is a spectacular sight to watch these huge old machines easily turn the heavy soil, as their black smoke trails across the clear blue sky.
Many large antique steam engines pulling multiple bottom plows are shown in group of photos following the two videos. To get the full effect, be sure to supersize the pictures to see all the details!
