Farming on Film 2 1955 to 1979 is the second in a series of bygone farming dvd compilations which were filmed on real farms by farmers in the decades following the Second World War.
Drawing on this archive material, this dvd shows the changes affecting different farms during these three decades. Scenes of horse and tractor drilling, corn binding and carting, threshing and stack building sit side by side with images of self-propelled combines, automatic bailers and men riding the bale sledge while haymaking.
Several tractors are seen at work in this dvd including vintage Fordsons and Grey Fergies. Back breaking jobs such as thinning sugar beet, potato planting and harvesting apples are shown, as are winter tasks like drainage trenching, hedge cutting and fencing.
