Love for work-willing International tractor starts young

LIKE many enthusiasts who fall for the work-willing International tractors, Geoff McClelland’s devotion began when he was a child.

He grew up on a mixed sheep and cropping business in Bealiba — in the Central Goldfields Shire — and was introduced to Internationals when his brother bought one, some 50 years ago.

Geoff, at 68, isn’t so young that he cannot recall feeding the animals with a horse and cart, and remembers the difference the International, or indeed any of their early tractors, made on the family farm.

Tractor auction revs up vintage rally

A 60-year-old restored tractor will go under the hammer at this weekend’s Laang Vintage Engine Rally.

The fully-restored 1940s McCormick Farmall Super A tractor has been donated by Warrnambool’s Ian Spikin and money raised from the auction and the gate takings will go to South West Healthcare’s palliative care unit in Warrnambool.

Organiser Brian Cockayne said the tractor had been restored by Mr Spikin’s late father Jim.
