1926 View of Advantages of Tractor Farming

| October/November 1999

We found the following item in the April 1926 (Vol. 4, No. 3) issue of The Oil Pull Magazine, a monthly once published by the Advance Rumely Thresher Co., in LaPorte, Indiana.


A recent contest for the best paper on the subject, 'The Advantage of Tractor Farming' was won by W. C. Wood, a student in agricultural engineering at the University of Saskatchewan.

In summing up the situation, after a thorough and interesting discourse on his subject, Mr. Wood gives the following nine salient points:

1. It has a place on most western and prairie farms.

2. It makes possible a great saving in overhead costs of farm power.

3.  Tractors can respond to rush demands and get the work done at the right time.
