A Comment & a Question

Oct 12, 2009
   On the October 11th program John said " IH only produced the Farmall H tractor for 2 years, 1953 and 54".  I was in high school in 1943 and '44 and drove the Farmall H with an IH hay-baler attached during the summer months of 1943.  My father was a dealer for International Harvester farm equipment and he had the first hay baler in Lewis County and introduced it to the local farmers by renting it out with a crew of 4 operators.  I'm 83 now, a retired teacher, and my wife and I enjoy your program

   I have been watching U.S. Farm Report forever.  I listened to it on radio for years before I saw it
on TV. I remember Orion Samuelson (I hope I spelled his name correctly) seemed to be on
the show forever. But it seems that I remember a host before that by the name of "Red" something. Am I losing it, or did this fellow exist.

***Editor's Note:  Along with Orion Samuelson, Max Armstrong was the other long-time host of U.S. Farm Report before John Phipps arrived.  While we don't know of anyone named "Red" who hosted the program, perhaps you are referring to Earl Finckle - a popular weather forecaster who once appeared regularly on the program.  Unfortunately, Mr. Finckle passed away earlier this year...
