On August 5th 2018, the Wyaconda Tractor Pull honored Wes Greenfield of Birmingham, Iowa with a plaque for his devotion and dedication to the promotion of the sport of antique tractor pulling.

Wes Greenfield is no stranger to the tractor pulling community. His dad, the late Joe Greenfield and his brother Dennis, introduced Wes to the sport when they began pulling in the mid to late 60’s with a Farmall M diesel and a 560. In the early 70’s Wes took over pulling their 806 turbo gas and eventually graduated up to their 1206 turbo.

Then in the early 90’s when antique/classic tractor pulling started to become more popular, Wes and his dad built their own weekend pullers. Joe built the ’39 Farmall M that you see Wes and his son Landon still pull to this day. Wes built a Farmall 400 that he pulled up until the late 90’s. It was then that he took a rusty, out of commission W-9 and rebuilt it into a classic work horse. Wes went on to win many classes, including those at the Missouri State Fair and Winter Nationals in Sigourney, IA to name a few.

The W-9 is in retirement for now, but Wes and Landon still enjoy carrying on the tradition with Joe’s ’39 M. Whether he’s coaching his son and future grandson or sharing his expertise with fellow pullers, Wes is always eager to do what he can to progress the sport of tractor pulling.

2018 proved to be a historic year for the Wyaconda Antique Tractor pull. The group celebrated its 34th year of tractor pulling with a record number of hooks.
