Most Farmers around here use John Deere. They are made near me. I don't know the farmer in this picture, but he probably rents lot of farm ground and farms thousand acre's or more. Lot of small farms being run that way. My best friend had about 300 acres and he rented it out. He told me what he got for renting it. As for the picture I didnt take it, but it is a really nice picture, one to be proud of. Typical Iowa picture this time of the year..Combines going every where you look. We had so much rain they couldn't get in the fields with out getting stuck. It's dry now and they are trying to catch up.. The rain did lots of damage on the actual crops also. making them moldy etc.
