My brother owns 27 tractors, 2 disks, 2 balers, 2 rakes and 6 hay wagons

oliver 252 diskThe first post on this blog (14 months ago) concerned my brother Albert and his hobby-gone-wild of collecting old tractors. I recently asked him about any new additions to the list, and I was a bit disappointed to learn that he had not acquired a tractor in the past year. As a consolation prize, he offered me a long list of supporting farm equipment purchased over the years.

Hay Wagons (6)      

Disks (2): Oliver 252 15 ft., Oliver 250 11 ft.

Rakes (2): New Holland 55, New Holland 56

Balers (2): New Holland 273, New Holland 268

His balers produce square bales. Albert is strongly opposed to round balers, claiming the cows can’t get a square meal. 🙂  By the way, every tractor and piece of equipment in Al’s possession is in good working order – he would have it no other way.

You might think that a person who owns 27 tractors and a long list of supporting equipment must live on a 4,000 acre ranch in western Minnesota. He and Barb live on an 80 acre hobby/horse farm located 30 miles straight west of downtown Minnapolis.
