After 1900, farming activities increased on the Island.

Tractors became the most important piece of equipment at the ranch.

The second tractor is a 1948 Ford 8N. This light duty tractor towed hay mowers, wagons, harrows and grain binders.

The third tractor is a 1956 Massey Ferguson. Fondly referred to as "The Beast," it pulled heavy equipment needed to plant and harvest crops.
