Origional Pulling Contest

My uncle worked for Texas A&M Research station in Spur Tx for over 35 years. He and the other employees expiermented with diffrent seeds, irrigation techniques and other ways to test farming procedures. He told me (many times) of when they first got a couple of tractors in to use (they had been using mules for years), and that the first tractors they got in were a Farmall A and a Ford N series tractor. After using them for several months, a couple of the guys made a bet on which tractor could out pull the other. He said the guy with the A was very headstrong and confident that he could pull the Ford around the Barns with no problem. The Ford driver insisted that they tie the two drawbar to drawbar. The Farmall guy agreed, and they were ready to go. Of course, the Ford guy lifted the power lift and took off. He drug the guy around the barn. No more bets or pulls were made for a long time (I think they were laughing too hard). My uncle passed away last year at the age of 92. Even at that age his biceps were as large as my legs due to plowing with mules. The last time I saw him, he told the story again, and I pretended it was the first time. I'll never forget the storys he told. Thanks for reading, Jerry
