Kole Eckhoff, 11, left, waits for the bare cob to roll off a belt after his friend, Olivia Williams, 7, center, had dropped the ear of corn into a Badger corn sheller that was powered by an antique hit-and-miss engine. The display was one of several antique farm equipment machines set up by Kole's father, Kris Eckhoff, at the Oktoberfest.
