Tulare, California hosted the World Ag Expo which usually attracts an estimated 100,000 visitors. L.A. Times reporter P.J. Huffstutter wrote, “Rising commodity prices may be stoking inflation worries abrod and may pinch consumers at the grocery store, but for farmers, good times are rolling.” Below is a luxury tractor, priced at $575,000. I’d like to get up top to this place of charm! This tractor is decked out with heated leather seats, a cell phone charging station, and a place to plug in an iPod. What’s really interesting is that many farmers don’t even blink at the price tag. Harlan Reese, a wheat and corn farmer from Illinois said, “When times are good, you invest in your operation.” This tractor is produced by International Harvester, and the IH model is the Steiger Quadtrac tractor.
