Steve Owen, farmer & owner of High Plains Trucking, purchased two FFA tractors for $4,000 on Saturday, January 25th. The tractors included a John Deere 630, and a Farmall H. Owen needed the tractors at grain bin sites to run truck augers. “I needed reliable gas engine tractors that generally start better in cold winter weather”, stated Steve Owen. The tractors are powering sixty-six foot ten-inch diameter augers that load semi trucks at rural grain bin locations. Both tractors have been to the county and state fair in the restored tractor competition in the past. Owen is an alumni of the Nevada FFA and donates harvesting and trucking for the FFA test plots. “It is nice that the chapter can provide reliable tractors for Owen and the tractors will be working locally.” mentioned Kevin Cooper, Nevada High School agriculture education instructor and FFA advisor.
