The 2021 festival is excited to feature Cockshutt Farm Equipment and host the annual summer convention of the International Cockshutt Club (ICCI). Established in 1989, the ICCI promotes the preservation and exhibition of the iconic Canadian-made Cockshutt and related brands like Co-op.
Founded in Brantford, Ontario in 1877, Cockshutt Farm Equipment was an independent farm manufacturer for over 85 years. Beginning with horse drawn plows, the company became known for farm machinery built for Canadian Prairie agriculture. The company merged into the White Equipment Company in 1962.
The 2021 convention will highlight the 75th anniversary of the iconic Cockshutt 30 tractor, the first modern tractor designed and built in Canada. The tractor gained worldwide status for pioneering the use of live hydraulics and Live-Power-Take-Off systems to power attached equipment.
To exhibit Cockshutt machinery, a feature exhibitor registration form will be posted on this website in January 2021.
