Ferguson Advertising PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Ferguson Advertising free pdf Harry Ferguson's contribution to agriculture was enormous. His Ferguson System took farm mechanisation a giant leap forward and was universally copied by other manufacturers. Indeed it remains a basic feature of tractor and implement design worldwide today. He was also an innovator in offering in addition to his tractor a complete range of implements designed specifically for it, from ploughs to post-hole borer, something no manufacturer had done before, and a strategy that greatly increased sales of Ferguson products. He really knew how to sell, and in addition he outdid all his competitors in the promotion and marketing of the Ferguson range. This book brings together a wide selection of Ferguson advertisements published in journals and magazines in both the UK and the USA, from the days of the Ferguson Brown tractor through the Ford Ferguson, TE20, TO20, TO30, TO35 and Ferguson FE35 to the Ferguson 40, the last of the line prior to the introduction of the Massey-Ferguson MF35. Implements and farm equipment made for Fergusons are also covered. Author John Farnworth is well known through his previous publications, and here he studies a subject that has a broad appeal to tractor enthusiasts and to the army of collectors of Ferguson memorabilia, while at the same time providing an overview of the life and times of the Ferguson brand. More than 000 advertisements are reproduced in the book.

About Herridge

John Farnworth is a farmer's son and was born on a farm on the outskirts of Manchester, England. It was very near the Massey-Harris factory and they used to send the new equipment from North America for testing on his grandfather's farm for a year before it was put on the British market. Hence he grew up in a farmyard full of Massey-Harris equipment in the post war years. This was the start of John's affection for the Massey family of equipment. The family went on to use Ferguson and Massey-Ferguson just as extensively as they had the old Massey-Harris equipment. Whilst at university he started to collect Massey-Harris tractors before embarking on a a career overseas in agricultural research, development and consultancy. When running overseas projects he always used Massey-Ferguson equipment wherever possible and gained much experience of their use in harsh Middle-Eastern conditions. In recent years, John has knuckled down to the serious business of compiling detailed but highly readable, well illustrated and informative books on the whole history of Massey-Ferguson, the predecessor companies and the range of equipment which has been produced and marketed by them. To date he has published moer than a dozen substantial books and has more in publishers hands for publication at a later date.
