Nuts and bolts on Yankee rakes and manure spreaders had to tightened, gears and plow points had to be replaced, disk harrows
and cultivators readied, wagon wheels greased, mowing machines updated with new pinion gears.
Ignorant of the Plains drought cycles and driving the steel disk harrows
that slashed the Homestead prairie grasses, farmers of the teens and twenties bared their pulverized soil to hot, fierce winds that came in the thirties.
The exhibits will include modern tractors, disk harrows
, seeding machines and cultivators that perform cost-effective field operations in compliance with the highest agronomic demands.
This arrangement was suitable for a mounted plow and other attachments that did not require a long tongue, but it was rather inconvenient for pulling equipment behind the tractor, such as binders, wagons, disk harrows
and other implements.
