An Iowa Road Trip With Red Tractors

OK~  An Iowa road trip today! Gotta love a road trip in Iowa on a hot summer day. I had the opportunity to hitch a ride with my parents to visit family and away we went.

The sun was shining and the corn and soybean fields were of great interest to the three of us. Yes, there is a crisis in the Mid-West. The corn does not look healthy and the soybeans are just beginning to show stress too.

Love this view- I grew up with red tractors all around me!  If you love red tractors~This display of Case I-H tractors is one you need to check out on Highway 3, West of Shell Rock, Iowa.

If You Love Red Tractors~This Is For You!

And of course, I had to get a close up along the way! Several red tractors all polished, shiny and on display along an Iowa highway~ How cool is that?

A fine red tractor!

And yes, my Dad, the retired farmer was driving. So, a road trip in Iowa would not be complete without a stroll through the lot of an implement dealer. And let me show you the treasures we found! From new farm equipment to equipment that might be used someday, an Iowa implement dealer has it all.

All in all we had a fun day. It was fun to see family and check out what is going on in the heartland. I hope you had a wonderful Sunday, how does yours compare? After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?


  1. You should see that farm on Hwy 3 around Memorial Day or Independence Day - they have flags on all of the tractors. It is quite the display!

  2. Tractors are a building blocks of a farm, and it will always be as long as it has no more crops to plant. A good irrigation and cultivation of soil would be a great for vegetable production


I always love feedback on my blog!
