On the sign:
מחרשה מברזל יצוק
תוצרת חברת Howard בבדפורד, אנגליה.
המחרשה תחילה נגררה על ידי בהמת משא (סוס, חמור או פר) וכשמנוע הבנזין הגיח לעולם, החליפו הטרקטורים את הבהמות. המחרשה נוצרה ככל הנראה בסוף המאה ה 19.

Translation of the text on the sign:

Negba - a cast iron plow
Made by Howard in Bedford, England.
The plow was first towed by a beast of burden (horse, donkey or bull) and when the petrol engine emerged into the world, the tractors replaced the animals. The plow was probably created in the late 19th century.
