Countrymark.

Lol! That's a name I've not heard for a good 20 year's. Used to be a drive through feed store at the countrymark co-op back then that sold that stuff. Grandpa used it in his '87 Dodge 250 and '86 Fifth Avenue. I know, I know, some people probably think it just a Chrysler product. Wouldn't waste good oil on them. Lol

I guess the yellow bucket stuff is going to be called "vintage" sometimes.

"Harvest King® Select Vintage Tractor Hydraulic Fluid is specifically engineered for older farm tractors and mobile equipment manufactured prior to 1989."

It's a little unclear whether it's fit for transmissions and rearends though.

Hog Lard here for my system in my cast iron pans.................

I use olive oil on cast iron, makes a more durable surface when toasted on at 450 F.

CaseIH is Fiat owned.  Shouldn't Olive Oil be the specified lubricant?

How much for bucket of extra virgin.

Depends on the applee-cay-shun. Generally stick with oils recommended by mfg. but where it comes to eng. oil. For that I prefer the slick kind, the stuff that don't squish out from betwixt the bearings and such. And for all muh diesel bangers I stick with Shell Rotella 15W40. Generally stay away from the synthetic as the costs don't override the benefits in the short term and antiquated stuff I'm running. All my gas stuff gets a 10W30 weight. For hyd oils most anything with same numbers will be sufficient, as in #32 -#46, etc. Most brands are compatible, but with exceptions. 

Mfg. recommended oils are generally produced with additives or made with properties to perform to their specs, or to the degree of how much money an oil company is willing to fork over for their recommendation.
