Country tractor ride to benefit Custer Care

June 17, 2013

The Homestead Act of 1862 brought thousands of settlers to central Nebraska, and the vast majority of them turned to agriculture as a means to make a living. Today that is still the major industry in this area, with many farmers and ranchers tracing their roots back to those early pioneers.
Later this month that history and agricultural community will come together for an event that is designed to be both fun and financially beneficial for one local entity. It is the 1st Annual Custer County Tractor Ride - featuring old tractors, with proceeds benefiting Custer Care Center in Broken Bow.
