When the Pioneers started their farms, they couldn’t afford a tractor
Posted November 06, 2018 12:32:18 In the early days of the Pioneering era, farmers like John Ralston and Charles Fenton relied on a little-known, yet immensely profitable agricultural technology called “tractor farming.”
The tractor was a simple, reliable machine that would haul a load of grain to a field.
For John Rallston, who grew up on the outskirts of Pittsburgh, it was a life-saving tool.
“I could go to work, go to school, come home and pick up my tractor and go to the field,” he said.
Rallstone, now 92 and retired, had worked for years as a tractor installer and was making enough money that he was able to buy his first tractor and buy a farm.
The tractor provided him with enough income to feed his family for years.
John Ralliart grew up in rural Pennsylvania, but when he was a teenager, he found himself working for a tractor company in Pittsburgh, the same place his grandfather had worked.
He was earning more than $100 a day.
“When I was a young man I worked, I would work all the time,” Rallerton said.
“It was just like the tractor was giving me the income that I needed to live.”

“The tractor gave me the money I needed,” he added.
“A tractor that could do it all.
I was able, I was working for myself. “
That tractor gave my family the opportunity to work.
I was able, I was working for myself.
I could go into the field and pick corn, and we were able to feed the family.”
But not everyone was so fortunate.
“They used to have to go through the whole process of being shipped off to the farms,” Rallo said.
They would get to the farm and take their horses and cattle and go down to the fields, but the tractor wouldn’t come to the barn.
“And I would have to pick my own horse and take it to the stable and I was not allowed to have a horse that was a horse,” he explained.
So how do you make sure that your farm is producing the highest quality food? “
You have to get your horse to that farmer’s stable, and you take the horse back to the house and feed it to your family.”

“You can’t just make money off the tractor,” Ralton said.
A farmer in the United States that Rallo worked for at the time, John Whelan, said that it took a lot of work to find a farmer willing to help him build his tractor.
He said that the first tractor Rallo bought had problems with its suspension.
Rallo’s wife, Mary, said he paid about $200 to buy the new one.
He did it for a while, and he eventually got the new tractor.
“He was able and he made a lot more money than I made from that tractor,” he told CBC News.
And that’s how I built up the farm.” “
We had a farmer that was making over $200 a day, and when I saw that he would pay for it, I took that farmer up on it.
And that’s how I built up the farm.”
But that’s not all.
Farmers like Rallestone and Whelaned also had to worry about the weather.
A tractor that was not ready to be put to work in the field was not a profitable tractor to own.
John Wale of Stony Creek, Pennsylvania, grew up with a tractor.
Today, he is one of the largest operators of tractor companies in the country.
He has two of them, one in Stony Lake and one in Franklin County.
“These two are our primary customers.
I think that there’s more than enough tractor companies to meet our needs,” he noted.
John Walle, a farmer from a farming family in Pennsylvania, was the owner of two tractor companies, Pioneer and Pioneer Day.
He remembers when his tractor company first went public.
“In 1929, I bought my first tractor,” Walle said.
It was a big, heavy tractor.
It cost $150,000, and my father said to me, ‘You’re not going to make enough money on this to buy a tractor.’
“At that time, there were no tractor companies. “
We built the tractor and built the farm,” he continued.
“At that time, there were no tractor companies.
We built a tractor and it was our bread and butter.”
Walle’s family is now the largest tractor operator in the U.S., with over 50 trucks operating around the country, Walle explained. He is
