  • FEATURING: Massey-Ferguson 1100, Massey's First Step Toward Muscle. At the start of the Muscle Tractor Era, Massey's biggest power was provided by ouside manufacturers, namely their competition. At that time, Massey was not set up to produce a large tractor, but things were about to change in a big way. Taking four years to reach production, it was the start of something big for Massey. Feature tractor owner: Coy Winslow - Fairmount, IN.
  • Speedrowers: A Harvest of Speed. For the initiated few who are engaged in North American farming nowadays, the two words "windrower" and "swather" are used interchangeably. Either way, they describe a machine used to cut certain crops and leave it in a row to be picked up by a combine or baler in a separate process. Read about New Holland, Hesston, and others.
  • Jack and the Beanstalk: The Pixall story of twin brothers, Bernie and Bruce Paulson, who began experimenting with a mechanical bean harvester while still in high school. 
  • Farmall 1206 Still Going. Growing up, we rented out or farmland to the neighbors who ran new (at the time) IH 706 and 806 tractors. The widow lady next to us rented her farmland out to a BIG farmer from the south side of the county. He arrived there with a 1206 and proceeded to make short work out of her farm!
  • Museums: Ryan's Round Barn, 360 Degrees of Farming History!
