the last 4 pics shows who bought out another.. first is IHC.. second pic is Case.. then JD in the last 2.. that list was made up by the owner of the barns.. he also has when that buyout happened

I suggest that u click on the pics to enlarge them so u can read the info.. when it enlarges u can also click that pic.. then it opens into a new window for me & the pic is larger than the last one..

that is the last of the pics I took on Wednesday.. I have a brochure that has his info in it.. I plan on takin pics of that & post it here.. there is no winter tours.. he did like that I was uploadin all the pics to MTF..

if u r near Marcus Iowa do plan on a tour of his barns.. I found a lotta info on the farmers before I was born.. his tours used to b free but now he charges $10 a head.. I found out the place in Neb charges $20.50 per head.. (which was posted by me...)

there is a lotta equipment that I did not get a pic of.. ya gotta see it to believe it..

the magazine I found the article in is the first pic.. the article is the last 2 pics..

I just found out that when clickin on pics after it opens up in a new window I clicked on the pic again for the third time.. then I could read the article (darn those glare spots have to go away)..

Whirly, that's an impressive collection. I saw a lot of the horse drawn equipment in the barns of the farmers that I grew up around to include our own. My father and grandfather had mules and horses so a lot of drawn equipment was still around stored as I grew up. Thanks for the pics, took me down memory lane for a bit!
