Ontario Plowmen's Association-IPM 2010: A Celebration of Farmers

ST. THOMAS, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 24, 2010) -

Day 3 of the International Plowing Match and Rural Expo (IPM) hosted by St. Thomas, Ontario began with attendance numbers for day 2 being released – 13,562 toured the Tented City and were attentive to the plowing competitions while 1,629 excited students attended the interactive education areas with their schools.

Thursday, the Team Farmall Square Dancing Tractors performed. The team says; "their men are men and their women are men too"! The men and "women" drove tractors from the 1940's era, turning and twisting the large tractors in tight circles to the dance music impressing large crowds with their abilities.

In the Antique Tractor field, tractors from many decades stood in long rows to be examined and admired while onlookers were amazed to see what had been used in "the old days". Farmers driving some of these antique tractors during demonstrations looked relaxed and proud as they showcased their skillfulness. Pride is also evident on the faces of the competing plowmen. The IPM celebrates the skill and dedication of the farmers who produce our food.


Ontario, yours to discover.
