The Prairie Days -- The name may initially lead anyone to think of a festival that is a bit dated, but this show is one that displays equipment of both the past and the present. A two-day event held in Bible Grove, IL, the Prairie Days is sponsored by the County Line Sodbusters, a group dedicated to the preservation and display of all kinds of agricultural equipment. With an international theme, this year's Prairie Days featured a variety of tractors and machinery that are used for farming means. From an antique tractor pull to a steam engine display and a horse drawn plow to a grain binder, the show is filled with displays that suit historic and modern tastes. Bryan West of the County Line Sodbusters joins us to discuss the highlights of this year's event.
