I can see that my "value" comments got a little out of hand and certainly not taken the way they were intended. My suggestion is to use caution when commenting on values...Thats All. Vauge or regional price quotes can cause confusion. Ron, I am especially sorry that I offended you...Please accept my apoligies. Bryan, thru your job you have no doubt realized life isnt fair. There is little that can be done to save family farms in these economic times. Non-farming folks here can do a little to help by supporting local farmers markets and products.

I have absoultly nothing against city folks as I am long removed but orginally hail from a city. The term "yuppie toys" is perhaps a little unfair too. It's great that there is a renewed interest in perserving memories of the nations rich farming history.(However, it does bother me a little to see some of the larger antique tractors purchased to work 20'x30'gardens just because the neighbor has one. From my expierence this is sometimes the case in urban sprawl areas.)

Someone asked why did'nt "our friend" purchase the second WD tractor. He did'nt because he already won a bid on a WD45 in good shape for a very reasonable price of $1400...we all know 45's are "worth" a little more. And by the way, "our friend" is from a nearby small town but never had anything to do with farming until he bought an old 40 acre farm. I fully expect we'll be seeing posts from him in the future regarding his tractor.

If I new a man was trying to buy his father's tractor, (as I've seen happen at more than one sale) I know I would not bid against him no matter how much I might want it, and I'm sure all the rest of these fellows would do the same. But, the better heeled coming into an area and buying at farm & estate sales is a sure sign that the small farmers in the area are on their way out. Same thing happens to land values as developers buy.

I thought your original post was excellent and on the mark. No need to apologize or waffle on any point.

You're just expressing your opinions, Steve. That's what the USA is supposed to guarantee - freedom of speech. No problem with that. (Just allow that there may be other opinions out there .... ;-) which is in a nutshell what you just said.)
