Red Power Isn't Always Red

Mel BooneThe annual Red Power Round Up was held last month. It's held in a different location every year. This year, I got lucky to have it in my home state at the Missouri State Fairgrounds in Sedalia. With it being fairly close to home, I was able to attend.

Unlike most tractor shows that I go to, the Round Up is an International Harvester only show, while other shows feature all brands. The IH brand, if you're not familiar with it, includes Farmall, McCormick Deering, Cub Cadet, IH trucks, implements, and household appliances. At one time, the company was one of a few manufacturers of the M1 Grande rifle. One of the fascinating things for me were the trucks ranging from the Highwheeler/auto wagons built in 1908 up to the fairly new semi.

When you come to the Round Up, regardless if you are an exhibitor or a spectator, one thing becomes quite obvious. Red Power doesn't always mean it's red.
