Peters claimed to have driven a tractor when he was 10, and he believes there’s not a huge difference between the tractor he drove and the machines on our farms today. They’re just bigger, he says.
One farming leader says someone needs to tell Peters that there isn’t a gear stick between the knees anymore.
His challenge to Peters: “Come down and have a drive in a Fendt tractor. For every minute that tractor doesn’t move you can donate $100 to the rural support trust. And the $100 comes out of your own pocket and not the Primary Growth Fund.”
