John Otradovec's 1947 Farmall Cub received the trophy for Best Antique Tractor in the Kewaunee County Fair parade on July 21 in Luxemburg.
Franklin and Gertie Otradovec of Casco present their vast collection of tractors every year in the Kewaunee County Fair parade. This year, Otradovec and his sons drove eight of their 17 International Harvester Farmall tractors in the July 21 parade, where they received first place in the entries.
The Otradovec family of Franklin, Gertie, John, Mike, Steve and Chris will be honored this year at the 20th anniversary of the Agricultural Heritage Days. The festival is Sept. 21-22 at the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds in Luxemburg. One of the Otradovec's Farmalls will be pictured on the festivity's annual plaque.
This year's celebration will feature "IH Farmall" tractors and "Fox" brand choppers along with food, live music, antique farming equipment and free steam engine rides in the village of Luxemburg.
