Case IH tractor donated to county fair board

Fair Board tractorBy Wade Linville –

Work at the Brown County Fairgrounds will be much easier this year thanks to a tractor donated by Bane-Welker Equipment to be put to use by the Brown County Fair Board.
The Case IH Farmall 75c tractor with a Case IH L620 loader, valued around $50,000, arrived at the Brown County Fairgrounds in Georgetown on May 19.
“It’s great! We really appreciate their support of the (Brown County) Fair,” Brown County Fair Board Vice President Bill Neal said of Bane-Welker in Georgetown. “For the (Brown County) Fair Board, it’s just not justified to spend that much on a tractor.”
Delivering the tractor to the fairgrounds were Donnie Kelch, Bane-Welker store manager in Georgetown, and Brandon Kelch, service manager at Bane-Welker in Georgetown.
According to Brown County Fair Board President Orville Whalen, it’s the support and generosity of local individuals and businesses such as that of the Kelch’s and Bane-Welker that play a huge role in making the Brown County Fair such a success from year to year.
“That’s what makes the (Brown County Fair) what it is,” said Whalen.
The tractor will be used for fairground maintenance, such as cleaning out the barns and maintaining the horse ring. The Brown County Fair Board will have use of the tractor until Dec. 1, according to Donnie Kelch.
