I have tried telling people how bad it is to waste farm equipment. Yes I do know that there is old junk out there, old junk combines, balers ect. They think an old LA Case or G Moline and 3 or 4 bottom trip plow is junk,,, Wait until they don't even have horses or a plow to work the land with... We will see how much of a piece of junk it is then,, Same for the rest of it. Being without learns one a GOOD sound lesson...
I do care about preserving history and our heritage. However the primary reason I save what I can and HATE to see it being scrapped is because of the practicality and durability of it. Farm machinery are tools. They cost $$$ to buy new. Scrapping it is like selling $10,000 for $100.... There are many places in this world where people would not know how to act if they had some of the "junk" that we scrap. We stand a good chance if seeing what it feels like to have land and no way of working it except for handmade utensils.

When the bad times arrive, and they will, the world will realize the need for the good solid simple practical farm implements and tractors which will be in very short supply. When they realize that is where their food comes from they will see. This is a learn the hard way deal. I am sick to see our country and the world go this way but it is going to come apart. Sad to see us wind up in economic ruins. It is sad but I can see it coming... I am sorry for the long post and rant but we are heading for bad times. Anyone who thinks otherwise is avoiding facing the truth.
