The Magdeburger Börde - Publications on its history

Steam plowing in the Magdeburg Börde region

The steam ploughing set of the Börde-Museum Burg Ummendorf

Why the Magdeburger Börde became one of the main areas of use for steam plowing, how it all began and why this technology was in use for so long is attempted to be traced in this book. The interested reader will learn how these machines worked, who made them, and how plowing was done, as well as subsequent technology such as the SZ 24 cable pull unit. In addition, this is the first publication to describe the history of the only completely preserved steam plow set in Saxony-Anhalt.
