Hundreds of Massey-Ferguson and Massey-Harris tractors were the headline attraction of the 20th annual Bruce County Heritage Farm Show.
They were part of the North American Massey Expo, which attracted more than 15-thousand people to the Paisley event over the course of the weekend.
Bruce County Heritage Association spokesperson Ken Kelly says the Massey exhibit brought in people from across North America and Europe, making it one of the most successful antique and steam shows of their 20-year run.
Kelly says the show also included one of the rarest pieces of equipment in existence, an Imperial Super Drive, which was one of only about 90 built in Seaforth and the only one that is known to still being in working condition.
Kelly adds the success of the Bruce County Heritage Farm Show belongs to the volunteers, who continue to keep the show fun while celebrating the agricultural history of Bruce County.
Bruce County Heritage Association spokesperson Ken Kelly says the North American Massey Expo helped attract an even bigger crowd.
