VIDEO: Preparing to thresh for the record

Volunteers brought their skills, and their iron, to Winnipeg on Aug. 18 to show the sort of work involved in attempting a world-record threshing bee. The demonstration of old-school threshing was held at the Red River Exhibition fairgrounds as a preview of Harvesting Hope, an event scheduled for July 31 next year at Austin during the Manitoba Threshermen’s Reunion, to benefit the Canadian Foodgrains Bank and the Manitoba Agricultural Museum.
