Power of the pull

Engines were revved up, then roared when the Badger State Tractor Pull was held Wednesday in conjunction with Farm Technology Days. The pull, at the Pierce County Fairgrounds in Ellsworth, attracted an audience that filled a grandstand clouded by smoke. Pullers from throughout Wisconsin were on hand.1 / 3
