Ferguson tractors became
Massey Ferguson tractors and
eventually became the largest
tractor company in the world.

Ferguson tractors grew out of the
merger of the three agricultural
companies of Massey, Harris,
and Ferguson. The roots of the
combined companies go back to
the mid-1800s.

Ferguson tractors would do
battle with Ford for many years in
the farm tractor industry,
eventually out-selling Ford.  This
is particularly interesting, due to
the earlier business relationship
between Harry Ferguson and
Henry
Ford.  Ferguson held
unique patent designs which
helped bring the Fordson
tractors back to success -
especially over in Europe.

Early Massey-Ferguson tractors
met with failure, however, but
eventually dominated the tractor
market after the Ford Motor
Company shifted its focus away
from farm tractors.

For a long time, a war waged
between the two companies,  
causing deep division in rural
communities.  No doubt this
battle between Ferguson tractors
and Ford began after their
handshake agreement was gone
when Henry died.

Massey Ferguson is one of the
largest agricultural equipment
manufacturers in the world, and
part of AGCO, which also
produces tractors of the same
name and descendant of the
famed
Allis-Chalmers tractor line.
