When mechanical power becomes available, it is soon used for farmto-market transport. Early tractors had no tires and in the 1920s were rarely used for farm-to-market transport in the United States or Great Britain. Instead, mechanizing farmers bought both tractors and trucks at about the same time. That also happened in Mexico after 1960.
Hay loaders became widely used in the United States after 1880 but did not spread in continental Europe until after World War 11, only to be quickly replaced by hay balers and other more sophisticated machines. Most of the animal-drawn harvesting machines derived their power from horses. Oxen could not be used successfully because sufficient power could be generated only at the higher speed of horses.
Um die Zeit zum Jahresrückblick zu verkürzen, haben wir hier noch ein Video von der Weizenaussaat 2019. Hier sieht man einen Fendt 1050 Vario mit über 500PS der das Feld vor der Sämaschine, mit einem Köckerling Vario 750 vorbereitet. Gedrillt wird mit einem Fendt 936 und einer Horsch Pronto 6DC. Der Fendt verwendet dabei eine AgraGPS Fendt- JD Bridge.

The best example is the United States in the second half of the century: an impressive horse-based mechanization led to massive agricultural growth because land was rapidly opened up and export markets in Europe provided a highly elastic demand for agricultural products.
Milling rice for home consumption can also be done over a long period, and in Asia it is common for a mill owner to 'rent' his machine to customers. Rental markets for land preparation, with the use of animals or tractors, were once common in the United States, when plows were scarce, and in Europe. Such rental markets are now common in Asia wherever tractors or power tillers have penetrated.
