The Moruya Antique Tractor & Machinery Association Inc. turned up in force to display at the Moruya Agricultural Society's 131st Show on the Australia Day Weekend.
The club display consisted of seventeen tractors and nineteen stationary engines including the historic York 6HP portable farm engine which was the first petrol powered engine to come to Moruya in 1906. This engine was second hand when purchased by the Luck family for their dairy farm, so was made in or around 1904.
The tractors worked a balancing beam in the Rodeo Arena in the absence of any horses due to equine flu and then paraded in the Show Arena.
Our Club has a strong association with the Ag Show as it was founded as a result of the 120th Show wanting to display a range of vintage farm machinery.
All members attending had a really enjoyable two days in great weather.
