POWER

exhibition number: Agriculture 9

The earliest sort of power available to farmers was human power, followed by ox power and horse power. Water power was common in Ceredigion, but wind power was not.

Stationary engines and tractors depended on the availability of fuel. Traction engines, used mostly to drive threshing engines were short lived.

Some farmers could afford stationery engines, driven by petrol or diesel.
