This is the Little Grey Fergie TE20 tractor at the Heritage Centre, Bellingham, designed by Harry Ferguson and built in England from 1946. His aim was to make agriculture more efficient to reduce hunger and poverty.  The three-point hydraulic linkage for attaching implements remains the basis of modern tractor design, and the depth of the plough could be adjusted to plough more efficiently.

As the Fergie was relatively inexpensive to buy (£325 in the late 1940s) and required less looking after than a horse, very many farmers bought tractors and gave up using horses. This changed the landscape of rural Britain, and the lives of agricultural workers who could now have Sundays off. To give an idea of the scale of the impact of the tractor, in 1947 100,000 working horses were slaughtered, and a similar number the following year. Fergies were exported to over 70 countries, so that people did not have to do so much heavy work themselves and enabling them to produce more food at less cost.
