Not my video, I found it on Youtube. Lots of vintage tractors in their original work clothes.

I'd seen that before but it still gives me
goosebumps. See the kid on the Ford when he taps the
brake with his little foot as he swings that big
disc around? He's done that before.

Neat video of them plowing and disking. It struck me as funny on how most of the plows where pull type. Around here most where mounted by then.

The Ford disking either had to be run by a kid or a real short man.

I thought the same thing about the Ford. Very nice video. The Heat Housers must have been really popular back then.

That's really neat, thanx. Kind of ironic compared to JD Seller's post below about some farmers NOT helping.
In the 70's I needed some parts from JD dealer in Elburn, IL. about 18 mi. west of me. Saw a farm with 10 combines working, and more than that plowing behind. Got to the dealer and asked if a field demo was going on. He said the owner had just died from massive heart attack and those were all local farmers "helping out!

I can almost SMELL the exhaust, and here the
sound......

I remember as a kid being "farmed out" to help
neighbors, and they would return the favor.

I also remember a couple years ago, when I had back
surgery - a good friend came by to help on some
things - a brother down the road never even stopped
by.....and a couple other neighbors just didn't
wanna...One neighbor helped on what he could.

A flag was set at the far end of the field and used as a guide when plowing the first pass of a new land.

I think I read that the flags on the tractors were a sort of predecessor to the triangular SMV signs that we use now. I placed that video in my favorites, and watch it every now and then.

Before slow moving triangles, farmers used red flags when on roads.

Thanks for posting the link, I have been thinking about this video, haven't seen it for quite a while. I counted 39 tractors at the end, now there probably aren't 39 farmers left in the township. I remember those cold, windy days plowing. The heat houser would roast you going into the wind and freeze your backside running with the wind.Looks like Case was popular in that area along with IH and JD. Didn't have that many Case tractors in our area. The 4010 and 560's were BIG new tractors then. Times change quickly. Thanks for the memories. Chris
