How farms have changed

Farms have evolved a lot from old times. Nowadays we have combines and tractors and so much more. Back then they only really had the horse and the plow. It would take them almost a day if not more to finish a row depending on the weather back then. Now it takes almost a day to do alt least half a field if not more.
