Tractor Cruise Benefitting the Foundation!

July 18

$35 – $500

COVID-19 Update

After a good bit of discussion, we’re planning to go ahead with the annual Keep Missouri Farming Tractor Cruise on Saturday, July 18th. Having said that, we’ll be monitoring conditions to ensure we can hold the event in accordance with state guidelines and social distancing requirements. Our plans are subject to change but we think folks might like an opportunity to get out and see the beautiful country in northwest MO.

In light of the current situation, we won’t be making a big push for sponsorships this year but hope to see more tractor drivers than ever. We appreciate your participation in the past and hope you will make plans to joins us once again this year.

If you have any questions, please contact Jill Fansler at 573-893-1410 or jill.fansler@mofb.org. Please visit mofb.org for additional pandemic event updates.

All for a great cause!

All proceeds benefit the Missouri Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture. The Foundation provides a dedicated funding source for a variety of agricultural education programs and leadership programs.

The 38-mile cruise will take place in Buchanan / Andrew Counties. It will begin and end at Ag-Power on US-36.

Tractor Cruise Rules

The main purpose of the Tractor Cruise is to raise money for agricultural awareness through the Missouri Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture and to have fun in the process. An accident or injury would take the fun out for everyone.

With this in mind and to assure that everyone is able to have a fun time, following are the rules for the Tractor Cruise:

1. All tractors must be in good mechanical condition to participate in the cruise (i.e., properly functioning brakes and parking brakes, non-excessive fuel or water leaks, good tires, non-excessive exhaust, etc.).

2. Traffic laws must be obeyed at all times during the cruise, including stops.

3. All drivers must have a valid driver’s license (state law), and drivers under 18 years must have written parental permission.

4. Operators must have insurance.

5. All participants must sign a disclaimer that is part of the registration form.

6. No “horseplay” will be allowed during the cruise, including stops.

7. Riders are not allowed unless they are seated in a “buddy” seat that is securely positioned next to or with the operator’s seat. Other seats must be approved by tractor cruise officials. Inappropriate or unsafe seats will be prohibited and the rider will not be allowed to ride the tractor during the cruise.

8. No ATVs will be allowed unless they are used by a cruise worker/volunteer.

All tractors must be able to go at least 10 mph and cannot have duals or pull any implements.

10. No alcohol will be allowed at any time.

11. Drivers must follow the designated route, stay with their designated group, are not allowed to pass and should drive on the shoulder whenever possible.

12. No implements, trailers or dual wheels are allowed.

13. All tractors must have a slow moving vehicle sign securely mounted on the rear.

14. No refunds.

All safety rules will be enforced by the officials of the 2019 Tractor Cruise. Any violations to the above stated rules or any other items or actions deemed to be unsafe or inappropriate for the cruise participants, volunteers, the general public or communities will result in the tractor and/ or cruise participant being asked to leave the cruise route.
