County Plowing Match Saturday
The Peterborough County Plowmenís Association is holding its 95th annual Plowing Match on the property of David Bradfield in Douro-Dummer just east of Peterborough at 1396 Bradfield Rd, just off the Warsaw Rd.
The match will be held September 28. Plowing starts at 9:30 a.m. with an anticipated 70 competitors plowing in 12 classes including two horse classes, beginners and ladies class.
The Association wishes to extend a special invitation to the general public to attend and see the plowmenís work first hand. We have one of the best horse and antique plowing components in Ontario.
Highlights include the VIP class where Reeves, Deputy-Reeves, Members of Parliament and other VIPs are invited to compete for bragging rights and trophy. Each VIP will plow two rounds on a supplied tractor and will be judged on their abilities as a plowman.
The Queen of the Furrow competition is held each year at the County match and the winner will compete at the 2014 International Plowing Match in Simcoe County near Ivy Ontario.
