Antique farm equipment draws people across America to Wellington - Dodge City Daily Globe

Antique farm equipment draws people across America to Wellington - Dodge City Daily Globe

People from across North America have converged on Wellington, Kansas, USA this week, all to check out rare, antique tractors and farm equipment.

Massey Days is the name of the event, a reunion for the farm equipment collectors who are involved with the Massey Collectors Association (MCA).  Massey Days moves to different towns each year, this year it's being hosted by Floyd Moore, of Wellington; owner of Floyd's Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning, and one of the charter members of the MCA.

"It's a strict Massey show, it's kind of a get-to-gether for us fools that never get enough of these things," Moore said. The event started on Thursday, and lasts through tomorrow evening at 1402 N. H Street. Moore is expecting 200 people for the Massey Days banquet, to be held at The Rock this weekend. Those people will become coming from all over the place.

"I got people from Maryland, Colorado, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Arkansas, Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, and of course Kansas," Moore said he is also expecting people from Manitoba, Canada.

Of the several pieces of farm equipment and tractors on display in Wellington this weekend, 30 are owned by Moore. His favorite one? A bright yellow, tractor that he has restored, an I-244 Navy.

"I've got one of two that we know of to exist," Moore said. "It was sold to the U.S. Navy, built for the U.S. Navy, and it's a 1955 model, the other one is a 1956, they only built them for two years, '55 and '56." Some of the antiques aren't just nice to look at, either.

"We have been cutting some wheat...we've been out there playing this morning," Moore said on Thursday. Next year Massey Days will be in El Paso, Illinois, Moore said getting ready for the event has been a lot of work. But Massey Days brings with it a positive impact for the community and surrounding area.

"There's no rooms in [Wellington] this weekend," Moore laughed. "We've got people staying in Winfield and Wichita,  because we've done got the motels filled up."  Moore added that if anyone is interested in learning how to become a part of the MCA, to contact him at 620-326-1433, or visit the group online. In the mean time, the public is invited to see what Massey Days are all about.

"If anyone wants to come out and look, there's no charge," Moore said. "Just come out and have a good time, and look at some Massy tractors."
