S: Greene Acres is the Place to Be - 2009

FC: Greene Acres is the Place to Be

1: Wow! Farming has changed.

2: The first improvement to help farmers produce was the John Deere plow.

3: Of course it was first pulled by horses. The horses were like those seen in this photo.

4: Mules and horses were used by the farmers to work the land.

5: The Good Old Days.

6: Bailing took a lot of work. First the hay was cut. Then it was raked into lines. And, finally it was made into bails, tied together and spit out of machines like this.

7: The bailer got smaller. But, the work was still a lot. Then came a machine that makes the large bails in back there. These have to be moved by tractors.

8: Harvest time in southern Illinois means beans and corn.

10: Tractors come in many shapes and sizes.

11: Small John Deere Green | To the Big Green Monsters

12: A true work horse.

13: Silage is kept in silos like this one. It is made of cement.

14: Today grain is kept in large metal grain bins. They have fans to dry the grain.

15: The grain is harvested by large machines called combines.

16: The grain is placed in large trucks and taken to the grain bins.

17: The grain bins are loaded through long tubes. The grain goes in the top.

18: Grain offices.

19: Machines that put on fertilizer and bug killer are important.

20: Large tanks of fertilizer are ready to go to the field.

21: Building homes and barns took a lot of work. | Some old buildings can still be seen.
