Alcoholic Harvester Pulling Team seeing ‘dreams come true’ in Louisville

The Alcoholic Harvester Pulling Team, ran by brothers Mark and Jim Metzger of Shelby, Ohio, are among the select few tractor pulling teams that received an invitation to run at the 2019 National Farm Machinery Show.

The group made their rounds on social media after this year’s harvest with their video of the pulling tractor attached to a grain cart — and making a run with it.

The 2019 National Farm Machinery Show runs through Saturday, with the Alcoholic Harvester pulling Thursday night.

Farm Machinery Show Valentine


I know I can be a burden around this time of year,

Because the ground is frozen and winter time is here.

I’ve got all my shop work caught up, and it’s too to cold to be out today,

And when I spend my days in the house I just end up in your way.

So my gift to you my darling, is that I’ll just go

With a bunch of buddies to Louisville for the Farm Machinery Show.

I simply love you too much dear to give a simple rose,

Or chocolates, or candy or lingerie or a pedicure for your toes.

You are wonderful in every way, and deserve some time to relax on your own,

You can read a book or take a nap or talk to a friend on the phone.

You could cuddle on the couch with me, but now you won’t have to hear me snore,

And you can wear the “I Luv my Hubby” t-shirt I got you the year before.

For many people mid-February is a time for kisses and valentines, but for a select (and very large) group of people who will be congregating in Louisville next week, the focus is squarely on farm machinery. The National Farm Machinery Show is a massive event that draws visitors from around the world. While those visitors are eagerly awaiting the show’s arrival next week, farm machinery manufacturers are scrambling to get that equipment in place and looking perfect for the show.
