I was at an event recently and saw a poster for a tractor supply store in Delaware. It was quite the attraction. I was interested in knowing more about the store and what they sell. I checked out their website and saw that they sell a wide variety of farm equipment. I have used many different farm equipment over the years and was curious. It is a small store and the sales reps are very friendly, but I did learn that the tractor supply store is mostly a farm supply business.
When you see a farmer take out a tractor and hand it to them, they’re actually actually buying some tractor supplies. If you read through that a tractor supply store sold about 100-150 farm supplies, you’d think that they’re selling a lot of farm supplies. The numbers are staggering, but the fact that they sell a couple of hundred farm supplies is a testament to the importance of farm supplies.
A recent example is a tractor supplier in a small, unassuming farm in Mexico, California. A very large tractor can be just as good in a small area as a farm supply truck.
If you buy a truck and you don’t look for tractor supplies, you might be buying a tractor. Or you might be buying a truck and a tractor. Its all a matter of perspective.
As I’ve mentioned in the past, the tractor supply industry is an extremely small portion of the United States economy. According to the National Association of Farm Supply Stores, there are more than 1,300 registered independent tractor suppliers that cover more than a fifth of the country’s 3,300 tractor sales outlets. The tractor supply industry is also a very small business. In 2010, according to the National Farm Bureau Federation, it had only $15 million in revenue.
It’s not just the tractor supply industry that is the big issue, though. The issue is the economy in which you are trying to keep a large percentage of the population in low, middle-income households. In the United States, a population of only 5.7% is probably the greatest challenge for the economy.
While the tractor supply industry in the United States is tiny, it is massive in the rest of the world. The American market alone accounts for 70% of all tractor sales, and the amount of American farmland that is currently used to produce them is enough to supply the entire European continent. The problem with American agriculture is that there are so many farms and so much land that the farmer simply cannot get enough to pay the bills.
The problems are compounded by the fact that the American farm system is extremely inefficient. The typical American farmer only makes about 5% of the food it needs to survive, and it is so cheap that even a small farmer can afford to buy his or her own truck and forklift to transport the rest of the food to the market.
The problem is that the truck you’ve picked up is a tractor and the fork lift used for the delivery is a truck. It has many advantages, but it does not have a tractor. You have to get the food from farm to plate so you can deliver it to the market. You need to maintain the truck for use as a farm tractor. And the truck is not necessarily the best choice to buy for the job.
With a tractor as the main vehicle for delivery, your truck can handle heavier loads than a truck. But a heavy-duty truck is more likely to be used for farm work. A tractor can be just the right size for agricultural work, but it will have to be adapted to a specific job. Your farm truck will need to have additional equipment, like a water pump, a trailer, and a crane that can handle heavy loads.
