Plow day Red pics


Recommended Posts

We had a beautiful day to plow.  Ground conditions were fantastic.  7 tractors.  Only 2 red ones!  I could use some help!  My 1066 and a neighbors 560.  2 4020’s a 4320 a 2290 case and a MM U.  We will try to get another day in this spring.  There are pics of all the tractors and some videos on FB at Back Roads of IL tractor group.  Request being added and you will be put in the group.

Entire generations of today’s farmers really have no experience of this type of farming. Time moved slower back then. It took longer to plow than today’s minimum tillage rigs but it also seemed like there was more time to get things done. Great pic and awesome representation of a bygone era that epitomizes all things right and good of IH.

  My dad would have laughed at me for buying this 400 planter.  I did it because it reminds me of a time when we worked together as a family.  We worked hard but we didn’t work all night.  We worked together we ate together and we were a team.  Today it’s me and my hired men.  We cover countless acres but it is so benign and sterile.  I yearn for just one more of grandmas meals at noon out of the trunk of her Grand Torino.  A few more of the evening meals with an entire kitchen full of tired dust covered family members.  Indeed, the good ole days.

I know what you mean about the good ole days. I can still remember certain smells and sights of farming in the early eighties. Seems like the smell of fresh tilled earth doesn’t make it through today’s high efficiency hvac filters on tractor cabs. 
  Call me sentimental but I think about those times a lot. 
  I love the pics of your line up. I would find a lot of enjoyment farming with a fleet of “66s again. New tractors are nice too though, but you really have something going for you there.
