On this page you will see the changes in our farming operation starting with my Dad in the early 1930s up to the mid 1970s.

Please click on the links to the left to see the pix of the early days of our farming operation.

Also, below left are links to The Iowa Agricultural Report of 1888 book that my great grandfather purchased and passed on down the generations.
Some of the links have lots of information to read so pick and choose what interests you.

You may be surprised when you read about the controversies & changing times back then such as English Sparrows, Dogs, Prairie Chickens, Chinch bugs, Road Graders, Electric motors replacing the horse, too many governmental laws, raising corn in the south and on and on.
