Max Armstrong tells the story of the Big Bud tractor that gets plenty of attention wherever it goes

Max Armstrong talks Big Bud, which was built in Montana to produce 760 hp, and it's a monster. Max talks about this big machine that was designed for a farm in California, then it went to Florida, then it returned to Montana and the Williams Brothers used it on their farm with an 80-foot cultivator. The tractor went into a museum in Iowa, but with new tires the tractor is back in the field.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
