Tractor Driving Contest
The Saline County 4-H Tractor Driving Contest was held during Fair Week. 4-H youth must be 12 years old to drive the tractor and attached trailer through a narrow obstacle course, competing for both time and accuracy.
This year, heavy rains cut our contest a bit short, and participants barely got in their written test and driving. The test includes inspecting a tractor and recording any hazards or faulty equipment and listing 10 safety procedures to perform before, during and after driving a tractor.
Our County Champion for the 2016 4-H Tractor Driving Contest is Caleb Huelsmann.
