Happy 100th Birthday to the Mass-Produced Tractor!
Original source: Modern Farmer

These are heady times for tractor enthusiasts! 2017 is the 100th anniversary of the Henry Ford’s Model F, the world’s first mass-produced tractor. 2018 is the 100th anniversary of John Deere tractors. Time to party!

Fordson fans (that’s the brand name of Ford’s original tractors) from Australia to the UK have staged major hoedowns over the past year. Should you find yourself in the Detroit area, stop in at the Ford family estate in Dearborn, where there is a special tractor exhibit to commemorate the centennial.

For the under-12 contingent, special edition toy tractor sets have been issued to mark the occasion. The Smithsonian has even declared 2018 as the Year of the Tractor, and will be showcasing a vintage John Deere model at the National Museum of American History in D.C.
