Sowing wheat using a seed drill pulled by a team of mules.

"Farming a homestead involved many different tasks that needed to be done all year round. Much of it was labour intensive and involved a great deal of power supplied by horses, mules, or oxen. Later on, tractors began to provide the assistance that farmers needed. Whether it was seeding, discing, haying, or summerfallowing the work was long and difficult."
