Farm and Ranch Living recently asked their readers to submit and vote for their favorite tractor of all time. This really hit home for me since my dad still has the first tractor he over bought – a Massey-Harris 101 Junior. He also has the first car he ever bought, but that’s a different story.
Old tractors are still used on a lot of farms and ranches today because, as they say, they just don’t make them like they used to. I teased my dad when he took me to my first antique show by asking him why it was an antique when it was what we used!
For my Hick Chick Chat podcast last week on Precision.AgWired.com, I spoke with Farm and Ranch Living editor Robin Hoffman about how they came up with their top ten list. Robin said it was really a lot of fun to calculate the votes and read through the stories readers sent in. He told me that most of the stories they received weren’t that much different from what my dad and I had discussed. People are very passionate about their thoughts and how they feel about their old iron!
You can find the complete list and check out the stories that were printed by going online or checking our their publication, but Robin and I go through all ten and the honorable mentions here in this interview: Interview with Robin Hoffman, Farm and Ranch Life
