The National Farm Toy Museum’s newest display, AGCO: The Evolution of A Company, highlights the historical brands of the AGCO Company from early machines of the past to today’s latest and greatest – all in detailed miniature.
One feature of the display not to be missed is the Allis-Chalmers All-Crop Combine Factory diorama. Handcrafted by Ev and Myra Weber in fascinating detail, this diorama depicts the creation of the popular AC All-Crop Harvester. Taking over an estimated 4,000 hours to create, this diorama preserves the rich history of what is now AGCO.
Among the many colorful brands included in the display are, Allis-Chalmers, Cockshutt, Oliver, Minneapolis-Moline, White, Challenger, Massey Ferguson, and of course AGCO. Also on display, a full scale Allis-Chalmers “G,” company timeline, and a multitude of fascinating agricultural collectibles on display.
The National Farm Toy Museum is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
