Black and white photograph used in St. Thomas Times-Journal published October 22, 1953 with caption: "Plowmen All? - It was a question at Elgin County Plowing Match on Wednesday if county councillors and wardens were good plowmen and from results obtained the result seemed somewhat doubtful. They all had a good time, however, and expert plowing didn't matter. Here are most of the contestants in the class lined up behind Warden W. S. McKillop, reeve of Dunwich, with the plow in hand who placed second. Reading to the rear are: C. M. Williams, deputy reeve of Yarmouth, class winner; P. W. Schleihauf, deputy reeve of Aldborough; Bruce Marr, deputy reeve of Malahide; Charles F. Jackson, reeve of Bayham; J. B. Wilson, reeve of South Dorchester; Cpl. Walter Robinson, O. P. P. St. Thomas, who was admitted as a ringer and won a red ribbon for putting on the best act; Walter Nelson, deputy reeve of Bayham; George Roszell, reeve of Malahide; and Ken Williamson, reeve of Aylmer."

History / Biographical
The Elgin County Plowmen's Association was established in late August, 1922 at a meeting held in the offices of the Elgin County Representative of the Ontario Department of Agriculture and Food, C.W. Buchanan. At this meeting the following executive officers were elected: Alex Anderson, President; William Wadland, First Vice-President; Sam Garton, Second Vice-President; and Fred Carr, Secretary. At the same meeting, the following directors were appointed: Roy Evely; J.J. Ashton; C.W. Buchanan; J.R. Teeple, Reeve, Yarmouth Township; and R.A. Penhale, President, Elgin County Board of Trade.
The Association organized the inaugural Elgin County Plowing Match, held October 17-18, 1922 on the farms of James Todd and Alex Anderson near St. Thomas, Ontario. An estimated 4,000 people attended the event, won by William Wadland, Yarmouth Township.
The Second Annual Elgin County Plowing Match was organized by the Elgin County Plowmen's Association and held October 23-24, 1923 on the farms of Mrs. W.A. Hill and D.W. Bearss, just north of St. Thomas, Ontario. William Wadland, Yarmouth Township was declared champion for the second consecutive year.
The Third Annual Elgin County Plowing Match was held October 29, 1924 on the farm of J.H. Miller, just north of Dutton, Ontario.
The Elgin County Plowmen's Association continued to organize an annual plowing match in Elgin County for many years, although some years were missed as a result of economic conditions during the depression of the 1930s and the Second World War, 1939-1945.
The Elgin County Plowmen's Association was a key partner, with the Ontario Plowmen's Association, the County of Elgin and the Elgin County Branch of the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food, in organizing the International Plowing Match events held in Elgin County in 1940, 1960 and 1985.
