Ferguson on the Farm - Part One


Harry Ferguson's system of farm mechanisation is brought to life here by some 25 implements filmed at work. Beginning with early summer cultivations and potato planting, the programme covers weed control in potatoes and kale, hay and silage-making, hedge-trimming and general farm tasks such as post-hole boring and milk-churn transport. It concludes with potato lifting, disc ploughing, earth-moving and work with the Ferguson reversible plough, leaving a companion programme to look at other winter and spring activities.
The majority of the implements are from Harold Beer’s working collection in North Devon and many were bought new. A range of Fergies provide the power, one of them still at work on the family farm where it was first used in 1949. The programme has a full commentary scripted by Stuart Gibbard, author of The Ferguson Tractor Story. The narrator is BBC broadcaster and tractor enthusiast David Holt.

This video shows a wide range of Ferguson equipment, ploughs, cultivators and disc harrows at work. Ferguson provided a complete system of mechanisation and we see many of the rarer implements in action, including the sub-soiler, rowcrop thinner, crane, dump skip, winch, cordwood saw and hammer mill. Muck-spreading and bale-loading sequences show all the different Ferguson trailers and loaders, illustrating just how extensive the range had become by the 1950s.
Nearly all the implements come from Harold Beer’s collection in North Devon. A range of Ferguson tractors provide the power, including a rare four-wheel-drive conversion.

Ferguson on the Farm - Part Three


Our third visit to Great Shortridge farm sees Harold Beer demonstrate implements from the later Ferguson era as well as machines from the early Massey Ferguson range. We join him in the spring as he uses a Rotavator attachment to prepare a seedbed for potatoes that he then plants with an M-F 718 Automatic Potato Planter. Going on through the year, we see Harold at work with an M-F 770 Heavy-Duty Spike-Tooth harrow, a 32-7 unit seeder, an M-F 37-7 hay conditioner and a 732 mower. Some eighteen different sequences show a variety of machines in action from an M-F 203 digger-loader to unusual ploughs. Highlights include an M-F 711 potato harvester lifting the crop we saw planted earlier.
