Safety training classes being offered for tractor pull

The annual Youth Tractor Pull will take place at the Crawford County Fair again on Friday, July 12 at 4:30 p.m. Area youth are invited to participate in the tractor pull, and safety training classes are being offered in advance of the county fair.


The tractor pull at the fair is open to boys and girls ages 7-18, with prizes and trophies being awarded to the winners in various classes. The training sessions are open to all who wish to learn more about how to operate a tractor safely, as well as the general care of ATV, farm, and lawn equipment. You can even take the safety class and not enter the tractor pull.

Open safety training dates are Sunday, June 30; Monday, July 1; and Sunday, July 7. All sessions begin after 5 p.m. There will be additional training sessions held during Fair Week if needed. The safety classes take place at the Oran and Leona Shoemaker Farm.
