Grain drill purchase...
« on: February 06, 2020, 04:57:52 PM »
Well I finally did it...gonna start drilling seed instead of broadcasting it for my plots.  This thing is larger than I wanted (13 ft/26 hole), but I couldn't pass it up for the price.  It also has a fertilizer box attached with no rust in the bottom!  We are going to be planting a dove plot this year with the drill also.

Great Plains makes a good drill - brother in law has a big one they use for wheat.  Keep that fertilizer box cleaned out after you're done sowing and it will give you a lot of years of service.  I bought a small IH drill for the brother in law on the other side of the family at a local auction here a few years ago - it was 10-12 years old and looked almost like new.  He's not going to do much but plant occasional waterways with it - unfortunately he hauled it to his place 90 miles from here, makes it tough for me to borrow it!

Are you planting milo for doves with that?

Looks GREAT!

Appears you have your soil needs all figured out and growing all kinds of plots now!   ##$%#11  @--0--0118

That is a nice accessory!  Those dove sure will enjoy the fruits of your labor.  Well at least until hunting season.
