Dave Barnick of Jamestown, ND is the same age as his trusty 1963 John Deere 4010 tractor...53 years old.
I met Dave last month during the video shoot at Green Iron Equipment in LaMoure, ND (http://www.greenironequipment.com), an "On the Road with Machinery Pete" segment for U.S. Farm Report TV show: http://www.agweb.com/machinery/on-the-road/ Dave is a very innovative, progressive farmer who pushes hard with the very latest farm equipment technology.
