For farmers of the past, and even some farmers today who live in remote parts of the nation, horse power for farming was the only way to get certain kinds of farm work completed. Today, with the increases in modern technology, and the ability to use electronic devices to do farmwork, the uses of horse power has pretty much been abolished in the larger farms in the country.
The main difference between horse power and modern farming machinery, is the workload which can be completed, and the time which modern machinery can save farmers. Modern machines are much more powerful, are much quicker in completing tasks, and require much less work than does the use of horses to do farm work.
For those who are “green” or environmentally friendly consumers, the use of horse power is still popular for some. However, in the majority of farms across the nation, the use of modern farming machinery has pretty much made horse power a thing of the past. The use of horsepower eliminates the need for manual labor, cuts on operation costs, and gets alot more work done, in a much faster and much more efficient manner than was done in the past.
