The pride of area farm equipment will be featured and revving its power in a couple weeks in Kewaunee County. The Kewaunee Future Farmers of America Association (FFA) Alumni’s 16th annual Truck and Tractor Pull is Friday, June 22 at the Ag Heritage Center south of Kewaunee. Kewaunee FFA Alumni representative Scott Kieckbusch says their will be a powerful lineup of agricultural vehicles on display.
The Truck and Tractor Pull originally started using a farmer’s field south of the Ag Heritage Center, according to Kieckbusch. He says the event, which starts at 6 pm on June 22, has drawn over 1,000 visitors and participants in the past. Proceeds from the Truck and Tractor Pull goes towards funding FFA trips and scholarships to Kewaunee High School students in which nine were issued this last year.
