Slayton tractor spreads cancer awareness

Email

SLAYTON — It’s hard to miss the long line of tractors parked along the driveway leading to the home of Ernie Engelkes and his wife, Betty.

It’s also difficult not to notice the pink tractor decorated by Engelkes that was moved Thursday afternoon to the Murray County Fairgrounds. The Super 8 Farmall that dates back to 1954 is his so-called “cancer tractor.”
