Since he started collecting them about 20 years ago, Roger Winter has acquired an impressive assortment of John Deere tractors of all ages, shapes and sizes. From horse-drawn plows and cultivators to an air-conditioned, modern behemoth that stand well over 15 feet in height, not to mention an assortment of miniature models inside his rural Callaway home, Winter’s collection contains a little bit of everything.
