Not Caterpillar - still shows the conditons of rice harvest in the earlier years before laser leveled fields, and "engineered rice" where the varieties mature earlier and stature is not nearly as high.   This shows McCormick pulling a binder.   Note the churned area - illustrates why "blocks" were often the order of the day.
