Winter is a good time to have the kids color for our Coloring Contest. Time is getting short to finish the pages they want to enter. Be sure to postmark by February 10 so Kim can take to the winter show for judging. Send us a photo of your kids coloring the MM pages!!
Make it a fun time to sit with them and talk about what makes MM tractors and implements so special. Do you know why prairie gold and red were chosen as colors for the company? Check out the history of the first coloring contest and print some pages for any child under 16 to color and enter the contest.
