    History of the Tractor: From Hay-Powered Horses to Gas-Powered Tractors

    By Mary Herring

    Published Feb 25, 2021

    A New Era of Farm Employees: Farm Technicians vs. Farm Hands?

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Jun 4, 2018 

    Traditional agricultural skills that made civilization possible are still alive and in use today.

It’s no surprise that tech-friendly millennials interested in farming are encouraged by these developments, which may make farming less labor intensive than in generations past... These paradigms consider tractors, front end loaders, and other devices as superior or more technically skilled work than manual labor... individual animal management tools, technology in tractors, sensors, etc...

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal
