With these types of fields and specialty crops in mind, John Deere recently announced the introduction of the Frontier LS11 Series 3-point mounted sprayers.

I’m guessing most of the 1,300+ folks in attendance at last Friday’s farm estate auction in North Judson, IN came away talking about the 1971 John Deere 4020 diesel, console, power shift tractor with approx. 5,500 hours that sold for $20,000 on a farm estate auction in northwest Indiana on  1/11/13 . Very strong price (see pic below):

that sold for $112,000.
