By "field work" I mean plow, disc, drag etc ..... things that require operating a tractor in a field while performing a task. While talking to a friend from the south, I was informed that, to the best of their knowledge, ladies in the south do not do field work or operate machinery. So I am asking ~ Do ladies in the south drive tractors and do field work? This is not a judgment call by any means, ladies everywhere work hard I am sure. I am wondering at the cultural differences.
