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

SE Iowa must have been the spring of '60 and a neighbor named Plowman died. Area farmers put in his row crop in one day. Dad had a new JD 530 and a 494 planter. All were home before supper. I was small enough had to stay home. Very common place in the day.

The guy driving the Ford (and his son) are "little people". Good people, all heart. They pull antique tractors with the Bald Bluff club and might be currently using the Ford in the video as one of their pulling tractors. I didn't see any Olivers in the mix of tractors. Major bummage.
That video was shot about a mile from BILLONTHEFARM and Wrigley. 'Course, neither of them were born at the time!LOL

Thanks Eric, I figured it had been seen before, but thought it was nice that there were many different brands all shiny and new! Nice to see them all in their unrestored work clothes also.

Even if it had been seen before, I think there were a few that hadn't seen it and can see the community spirit that existed years ago.
I have been to one of thes, in 1982 when the neighbor was in the hospital. I ran the 4020 with 4 18's and Dad had the 4620 with 6 18's. There were about 15 others in the field plowing too. I actually thought it was fun plowing that day! We turned some ground!

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

You notice every one of those fellas has their plow set perfect. Level from front to rear and covering all the trash!

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

That kid on the 961 reminds me of the younger son of the farmer that I worked for as a kid. That was just how he sat unless he had to clutch or brake. It was more comfortable than having his legs dangle.

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

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.

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!
