Tractors became the most important piece of equipment at the ranch.
The first tractor you see is a 1929 Case Model L. This tractor pulled plows, powered belt-driven saws and threshing machines.
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.
