GS 96199 49 Spring planting either
Spring planting
This week has been busy, most of the week i have been trying
to keep up with the cultivator to the combination in the
picture...

This picture shows a John Deere 8310 with quicke loader
frame, and behind it a flexicoil aircart which only holds
fertilizer, a lot of fertilizer, and behind the aircart is a
modified great plains 12 row planter which has discs for
no-till and about a million hoses to distribute the
fertilizer. This combination can do over 17 acres an hour
and eliminates the need for a separate terragator to apply
fertilizer.

So far they have done 230 acres of corn, they still need to
do 170. The weather is not cooperating now, so it will have
to be next week.

This combination is owned by Claussen Farms from Clintin,
Ontario

This picture was taken 10 minutes later on a different
field, and the sun had left me... :-(

This is a JD 8120 with 30ft Flexicoil airdrill seeding
alfalfa and trippermix. 142 bags of seed went into it to do
80 acres. Took about 6 hours to set it up properly and get
all the seed in.

This combination is also owned by Claussen Farms, both were
working on our farm at the same time.

Re: Spring planting
How large is your farm to require such large planting
equipments? What crops do you grow? I suppose you no till
a part of your land with the type of equipment you use.

Re: Spring planting
We only have about 675 acres of workable land that used used
for feed for our dairy cattle, we don`t own those large
tractors and planters, they are owned by Claussen Farms,
which is a custom operator working out of Clinton.

The only things in these pictures we own is the 7710 and
cultivator.
