Tonight marks the launch of the 10th season of Successful Farming’s half-hour television program on RFD-TV. Originally aired in 2007 as the Successful Farming Machinery Show and later as the Machinery Show, the show is now simply called Successful Farming. The new name denotes the show’s expanded coverage on all ag-related topics. The content that viewers have grown to love is still there, including machinery, technology, auctions, shop ideas, and antique tractors. But the new format will also include agronomy, lifestyle, and farmer features, just to name a few.

The premiere episode (show number 1001) can be seen at 9:00 p.m. EST on Thursday, October 27. The show will be rebroadcast later that night at 1 a.m. EST and again on Sunday, October 30, at 10 p.m. EST on RFD-TV. Check local listings for the channel number.

Show 1001 features a diverse Illinois farm shop designed to accomodate a wide range of tasks. SF Engine Man Ray Bohacz discusses the benefits of reducing sludge in your diesel fuel storage tanks. Dave Mowitz attends the auction of three 2013 John Deere 8335R tractors. In All Around the Farm, Oklahoma farmer Bill Rosener shows off his rugged tool storage peg board, made from a sheet of aluminum. And Dave visits a Michigan collector who specializes in rare John Deere tractors, like the John Deere HWH.
