1944 WWII CASE SI “Airborne” Tractor
In 1944 – WWII, U.S. military supremacy was aided by agricultural manufactures during one of the largest military build-ups of the day. U.S. military equipment specifications called for a tractor to meet heavy duty use, quick and easy transportation and simple serviceability. The CASE SI “Airborne” met these specifications. See it at Heartland Acres as part of the “Ag in the Military” display. Now through late 2013!

What is Agribition?
We often get asked, “What does agribition stand for?” Simply put, agribition is a combination of the major aspects of the Agribition Center. In the whole scope of things, our project will focus on the exhibition of agricultural developments from the past, present and future of farming in America.
