We're using 1 1850G, 3 1850D's, 1 2150D w/MFD; were economical purchaces a few yrs back. A 4010D was estate close out and a 4020G was moving sale purchase. There are 2 AC's: a 1937 `C' and WD45, 2 Fords one a comercial backhoe/loader, a Leland 72TD a recently overhauled wreak was the farm's first diesel. So economical the others were subsequently added. And, some self-propelled machinery. Of late thought wise to use a couple more tractors rather than chance hitching accidents useing so many varied implements associated with Livestock production. A couple of them nickled and dimed there present existence. Can't afford to get rid of now. The'ye had so many parts rebuilt or replaced the cussed things are like opperating new.

Dang Fern, that's quite a collection you got there. That's a good idea too about having a tractor for every implement. You livestock farmers have a lot of different jobs for your tractors, besides the safety factor, switching can be time consuming. Plus if one goes down you have backups. Makes sense to me!
