THE UNIVERSAL TRACTOR
Farming, like every other business, must cut
down the overhead.
It is not a question of being able to afford a
Fordson; it is a question of being able to con
tinue farming on the old too-costly basis.
The farmer's problem is not all a sales problem;
it is also a production problem. He must cut
down the cost of production.
The Fordson does more work at a lower cost
and in less time than the old hand methods.
