Bobcat celebrates production of 1 millionth loader

GWINNER, N.D. (AP) - Bobcat Co. is marking its 1 millionth skid-steer loader to come off the assembly line.

The West Fargo-based company celebrated the event Saturday in Gwinner. It will include a 5K run, factory tours and a party at the city park.

The self-propelled loader was originally invented to ease manure-removal chores on area turkey farms.

Gwinner-based Melroe Manufacturing Co., which later became Bobcat, bought the rights to the loader in 1958.

Bobcat manufactures other light construction equipment.
