---- — Shelby County Farm Bureau Young Farmers hosted an evening of fun and excitement on Monday, July 15, 2013 at the Shelby County 4-H & Jr. Fair.
The Young Farmers sponsored the annual pedal tractor pull contest for children ages 4-7 years old.
Each participant was given a participation ribbon and prizes were awarded for first, second and third places in each age division. The committee also presented Ryne Peavler, son of Jack and Melissa Peavler, Shelbyville, a John Deere 720 pedal tractor at the conclusion of the pedal pull. Ryne’s name was drawn from the 42 pedal pull participants.
The pedal tractor pull is an annual event at the Shelby County Fair. The committee would like to thank Tom Cole, Windsor, for the use of the pedal tractor sled and tractor. Thanks to all the parents, grandparents and spectators for cheering the little pedal pullers to the finish line.
