About Stamp

The third set of Historic Land Vehicles stamps - to be issued once again in a souvenir sheet format - depicts farm and frontier vehicles, including three used on farms and three used in off-road conditions. Cockshutt Farm Equipment Limited was founded in 1877 by James G. Cockshutt, who invented a series of implements, including the J.G.C. Sulky Plow. The firm designed tractor-pulled implements and offered a line of American-built tractors. Ending its U.S. agreement, the company decided to design and build its own line of tractors and combines. The result of its intensive development program was the Cockshutt "30" - the first tractor equipped with live power take-off and a live hydraulic system. The first "30" was produced in Brantford, Ontario, with production increasing from 400 units in 1946 to over 17,000 in 1949. Production ceased in 1956 and the company was sold to U.S. interests in 1962.
