Dave Reed, executive director of the NFO (National Farmers Organization), presented Nevada FFA with a check for $3,000 for a restored Farmall H tractor. NFO is holding a raffle with its national membership to raise funds for the NFO scholarship program. The tractor, which was donated to Nevada FFA in June of 2011 by Don Knott, was in storage for many years, and was in good condition. Nevada FFA members performed a multitude of repairs, including splitting the tractor to install new rear seals, sandblasting and repainting and radiator repair, and recently they rebuilt the generator.
“The NFO wanted to support an FFA chapter, and Nevada FFA had just what we were looking for,” said Dave Reed of NFO. The tractor was exhibited at the state fair in 2012 by Henry Corbin and Eric Wirth.
