Tractors are not only a necessity for agriculture, but they are also a way of life.

The Montana Ag Network found a collection of toy tractors whose history has made big impact in Montana.

John Schwartz has been collecting tractors for quite a few years and has more recently made the Big Bud line of tractors his passion.

John and his daughter travel the country showing off their one-of-a-kind collection.

And coincidentally, out of three kids, two of which are boys, his daughter is the only one who has shown interest in the tractors.

“She has the passion and the want to do this stuff,” Schwartz said. “Most girls don’t want to go play with dads tractors.”

The Montana Ag Network caught up with John at the Antique Tractor and Toy show a few weeks back.

The show was held in conjunction with the 2018 Montana Agricultural and Industrial Exhibition.
