Determined to take it back

Denis Lauzon, Jeremy Lauzon and François Latour are determined to bring the world record for number of threshing machines operating at one time back to Eastern Ontario. In 2015, Latour spearheaded a successful challenge to the world record with 111 mills running continuously for 15 minutes at the same time. In 2016, a group in Saskatchewan surpassed the record, and now Latour and supporters are putting out the call for antique machine operators to get ready to bring their threshing mills to the St. Albert Curdfest in August of 2019. He is looking for 150 or more participants. Vetter photo
