Description

Before mechanization, fields were hayed by hand. Mechanization meant that tasks that had been group efforts — like haying and manure-spreading — could now be performed by one machine. The tractor was the most profound symbol of agricultural mechanization to emerge in the mid 20th century. John Deere, a pioneer of agricultural mechanization, was born in Rutland in 1836.
