I have been in the market for a used tractor for about a month now. Its come down to a Case IH 1140 or a Ford 8N. The Case is more expensive by far at $5000. Then I need implements because I want to dig post holes for our soon to be cow pasture and I want to move dirt around. I started out only wanting a few head of cattle and accidently found this site and now have chickens on order but thats anothe thing all together. Its kinda stressful because I dont want to buy the wrong machine and all of that. I've never had a tractor bigger than a riding lawnmower and the Case IH is a compact tractor so its not that much bigger but its diesel and pretty powerfull. So, just venting, thanks for letting me vent.
