A farmer nearby here has 350 acre spread, grows corn, soybeans and hay, (also has some beef cattle) and does most of his work with old Fords. He has numerous 801's for haying and manure spreading and has a '63 4000 5 speed NF that he puts an enormous corn picker on (you can hardly see the tractor). Also uses a 5000 diesel RC. He loves the old Fords. He does have a large green tractor for some of the heavy work. -Will

Ralph's place is in amongst some large Amish farms. They all seem to use Ford tractors, larger blue ones with cabs. Drive 'em around town like cars with the kids inside. There's a ice cream shop out there and in the summer the Amish drive in their Ford tractors with the kids, it's real cute. -Will

My cousin, like his father before him, farms with Fords. During transition years my Aunt and uncle would spend time in Florida while my cousin stayed and ran the farm. At that time an 860 was the "Big Horse" on the farm. My cousin bought a 5000 at auction while my uncle was away, and my uncle was very upset to see it there when he got back, it being such an unwarranted extravagance. I have a picture of my uncle sitting on it though, looking pleased, with the corn chopper behind it. With the 860, chopping corn was hour after hour, day after day,week after week, creeping along in first gear. The 5000 enabled them to get it done in half the time.
