I’ve had 2 days of fun with Fergusons. On Saturday 31st August 2013 I was invited by Seb Littlewood, Head of Rural Life, to drive a TED-20 belonging to Beamish Museum. The event, Agricultural power from the past aimed to have many agricultural demonstrations going on around the site over the four days. My small part was driving a Ferguson and 3ton trailer with various loads of cereals to stores and threshers etc. It was a fab day and a lot was achieved.

Me PLoughing

On Saturday 31st August -Sunday 1st September Brian Pickering, Ferguson Club Vice Chairman, organised a working weekend just outside Boroughbridge. I was able to take my TEF-20 and a 10″ 2 furrow General Purpose plough along. As it wasn’t a competition I was free to experiment with lots of different settings ahead of the ploughing events coming up in the next couple of months. A big thanks to Brian for organising This event, looking forward to seeing you at Newark

* Anniversary

Posted on July 21st, 2011 by ploughmyfield. Filed under News.


This year sees some milestone dates.

75 years of the Ferguson Brown

I don’t really know much about the Ferguson brown era other than they where produced up the road in Huddersfield. It is the the Ferguson Club who is promoting the 75th anniversary this year. I understand the Ferguson Club stand at the Newark show will make the Ferguson A or Ferguson Brown it’s featured tractor this year. I think they are trying to get as many together as possible. 12th-13th November £10 a ticket (£8.50 in advance)

60 years since the first TEF-20 was produced at Banner Lane

There haven’t been any records  for 1951 production at banner lane to survive. I therefore have no way of knowing when the first TEF-20 came off the production line, so having a think about it. I wondered if I could have a guess at a date. There were 73,498 tractors produced in 1951. Or  201.4 tractors per day. Starting at serial number 167,837 I think the first TEF-20 was 200,000? so that is 32,163 tractors worth of production fron January 1st 1951 or at 201.4 tractors a day thats 160 days meaning  Saturday 9th June 1951 tractor 200,000 was produced. Anyone know of any other way?

25 years of The Ferguson Club

The annual get together was held earler this year at Beamish. I was unable to attend but I see the 2012 annual general meeting and members weekend will be in SHEFFIELD on 20th-21st of April. I will be going to the Whole weekend.
