Mini Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (D)
Dalrymple, Oliver


Dalrymple, a doughty Scot living in North Dakota put it all together in one great farm. In 1876, he secured 30,000 acres in the Red River Valley and planted it all in wheat. It was the largest wheat field ever seen by man in the entire world. The soil was turned with 150 gang plows, sown with 70 drills and reaped with 150 McCormick self-binding reapers. Twelve threshing machines filled two freight trains a day with enough wheat in each train to give two thousand people enough bread for a year.
