Farm and Ranch Living recently asked their readers to submit and vote for their favorite tractor of all time. This very much hit home for me as my dad still has the first tractor he over bought. A Massey-Harris 101 Junior. He also has the first car he ever bought, but that’s a different story.
Old tractors are still used on a lot of farms and ranches today because they don’t make them like they used to. You’ll hear that time and time again. I teased my dad when he took me to my first antique show by asking him why it was an antique when it was what we used. I spoke with Robin Hoffman, editor of Farm and Ranch Living. He said it was really a lot of fun to calculate the votes and read through the stories their readers sent in. He told me that most of the stories they received weren’t that much different from what my dad and I had discussed. People are very passionate about their thoughts and how they feel about their old iron.
You can find the complete list and check out the stories that were printed by going online or checking our their publication, but Robin and I go through all 10 and the honorable mentions here in this interview: Hick Chick Chat with Robin Hoffman, Farm and Ranch Life
