Ralph has been involved in Branch 28 for over 25 years (his father, Bob Moore, helped organize the club). Ralph is a machinist by trade. He has done several repair jobs on equipment and especially on our two mechanical sleds. During the show, he pitches in wherever needed. Ralph lives several miles from our grounds so he can’t be involved on a weekly basis. Ralph and his wife (she works in the kitchen during the shows) always makes a good donation to branch 28 to help as we preserve, restore, and demonstrate items from our agricultural heritage. For the 30 anniversary of Branch 28, he and his family brought and displayed 30 tractors that were all from the same manufacturer.
We are honoring Ralph for his dedication and service to Branch 28 over these many years. He also has saved Branch 28 lots of money through his knowledge and time as a machinist.
Ralph owns many, many antique and classic tractors. He always brings them to our shows for exhibition and pulling. He is always ready and willing to help other members with problems that develop with their tractors and implements. Ralph also helps on the pulling track during the antique and classic tractor pulls at each of our shows. He really likes to help the younger members of our club. Ralph is very devoted to the collections, preservation, and exhibition of machines and equipment that are very much a part of our agricultural heritage.
