  12. When I was growing up on the farm at Lake Park, IA we used to feed/fatten steers and then truck them to market at the Sioux City stockyards. We also bought replacement steers there from the "sandhills" of Nebraska. best, randy
  13. Ah-so, well, I'd pretty much thought so, thanks for the answer! Our neighbor on the farm had one and I can remember looking at the oval side exhaust and grey paint compared to the our F-20. That was all a l-o-n-g time before I left to enlist into the USAF and found chums down at Rolling Fork and Anguilla and the gin and such in the CAF. best, randy
  14. And I also noticed something from my earliest days of looking at tractors, those diagonal lugs on the rear wheels of those two (what're they, Regulars or F-20s?) tractors. best, randy

  19. Chuckle, you made me recall something from the d-i-s-t-a-n-t past. Recall duing WWII the denizens and businessmen from the local towns came out on the farm to help out cuz most all the male help was drafted and gone overseas. So the local newpper editor (Lake Park Iowa News) wrote that he'd talked to me and asked what the guys were out doing (1943 oats threshing time), I must'a not talked too clearly, he said that I'd said "socking goats". best, randy
