This past week we wrapped up work on our new planter and moved it outside. We calibrated the Force CS system, checked for leaks and got it set up in our JD 2630 display. We also began work on re-spacing the front duals on the planter tractor, changing the oil and cleaning it up after it was in the mud all winter working with the grain cart. We also spent a little time burning off road ditches and waterways along with trimming trees along field borders. It was also a good opportunity to check the usual spots for newly unearthed rocks, bricks, etc. that show themselves after fall tillage and winter weather.

A good time of year to find obstacles Mother Nature has uncovered over the winter
The new owner of our 1st strip-till bar and dry cart came to pick up his new purchase. We still have the 10 ton poly dry cart for sale - $47,500.
