ABSTRACT
The article discusses farm machinery replacement and retention. According to Wiltshire, England-based contractor Chris Awdry, smaller or older machines are still necessary to complement new machinery. Awdry stresses the need to have a balanced management of machinery, adding that the services of a reliable equipment should be retained rather than replaced. While making changes in machine use may not always be profitable, it can make life easier.
