The regular Travellers Universal Tractor Trans/Hydraulic Fluid says on the label that it meets the Ford/New Holland M2C134D specification, and it's the least expensive I can find near me so that's what I buy.
A quick Google search found a TSC web page that describes the "Travellers Renew Universal Tractor Fluid for older Tractors" and that says that it meets 134D spec also. It costs considerably more than the regular Travellers UTF, so it may have something extra in it that makes it cost more. The TSC web site says that it has "improved seal performance minimizing common leaks" which sounds like it has an additive that causes seals to soften and swell, which can help small leaks in the short term, but can cause seals that aren't leaking to degrade quicker in the long run. It's up to you, but I would just go with the regular Travellers UTF myself.
I change the fluids in mine a lot more often than the book calls for in terms of hours since I only put 20 to 30 hours a year or so in mine. Unless you're running it for more than a 150 hours a year or so, you should be changing the fluids more often than the book says also, and keeping the fluid fairly fresh and uncontaminated is more important in my view than any additives that are supposed to help with small leaks. If I get a leak, I live with it until I fix it.
