Feature stories include: Carlton Copes’ MF 2805 National Pro Stock pulling tractor, the Massey-Harris 200 Series tractor registry, the history of Massey production at Batavia, New York, Newcastle, Ontario–the first Massey factory, Bob Holden’s Massey Ferguson collection, plus great photos from Working Tractors Part 2. Plus more letters in RFD, Memories of Iowa farm life with a M-H 44 and much more!
We are totally out of Legacy Quarterly calendars. We had a huge rush of orders right at Christmas. Thanks to everyone who placed their orders and we apologize to those of you who missed out. We will order even more calendars next year.
Looking forward to LQ #18, we are working on stories about the Massey Ferguson 97 tractor that was built by Moline, the Ferguson Model 2085 tractor, and the restoration of a Massey-Harris 25 plus much more.
As usual, keep the cards, e-mails, letters and great photos coming.
See outtakes we couldn't fit into Issue #16
Issue #16 was mailed the first week of October and features stories about collectors from Maine and Massachusetts. The issue is packed with great fall photos of Massey tractors shot throughout New England and upstate New York.
There is also an interesting article about building the new robotic Harry Ferguson for the AGCO Intivity Center in Jackson, Minnesota.
If you're a fan of horse drawn Massey-Harris farm equipment you won’t want to miss the story about Don Roi’s fine team of Suffolk Punch horses pulling a Massey #21 plow.
An article about young Massey Collectors rounds out this fall issue.
In January we will run another section about Young Legacy readers so if you have a photo of your young children or grandchildren reading Legacy Quarterly, send them in.

Issue #15 was mailed the first week of July and features a special article about Massey-Harris visionary and Vice President Joe Tucker. Joe was the man who conceptualized the World War II Harvest Brigade. The article explains how a letter from Joe’s missionary daughter inspired the whole idea. Many of the photos are from his grandchildren Judy Horsch and Joe Tucker III and have never before been published. The other feature is an article by Kerry English, which chronicles the last years of the Massey Ferguson Harvest Brigade. A pictorial featuring Texas Longhorns and a Massey-Harris 30, plus a very rare Little Bull tractor round out the feature articles.
The section on “Working Tractors” presents three pages of Ferguson, Massey-Harris and Massey Ferguson tractors doing what they do best – work. If you didn’t get a chance to send in your photos you still have time. We will run another installment very soon. So, when you have your tractor out working this summer, snap some good photos and send them to Legacy Quarterly.
The October issue will give you a chance to order your Legacy Quarterly 2014 calendar. Last year’s offering went into three printings and we still ran out. Look for the order form in LQ #16. Don’t be disappointed!
The Bull Tractor video should be ready by the middle of July. You can view it right here on the website along with the rest of the Outtakes.
If you own, or know someone who owns one or more of the 200 series Massey-Harris tractors, be sure to read about the Model 200 Registry. All of the information on how to participate is in LQ #15.
Sue and I hope to see you at a show sometime this summer!
