The Bill Sauer Memorial Antique Tractor and Machinery Show
The Murray County Agricultural Society is planning its Annual Antique Tractor and Small Engine Display for the 2013 Murray County Fair, August 14 - 18, 2013.  This year the show will be held in memory of former county Commissioner Bill Sauer, who for many years worked hard all for the love of tractors!

The Fair has expanded this year to include a Threshing and Field Demonstration area.   They are looking for any vintage equipment that can grind, muck, shuck or make something to make a great show and they are looking for a variety of makes and models to make the display as interesting to the public.
