    we only used the discer for seeding never for tillage, always used a cultivator another lesson learned from the thirtys

    we did learn from the dust storms and with true direct seeding that problem is gone but now with every acre being seeded we have a new problem, prairie fires. had a bad wind storm in october this past year winds over 60 mph, had a fire start 11 miles southeast of me and within 20 minutes it was within two miles, thankfully we got it stopped only burned one vacant old yard site, all this at 2 in the morning. now realize we need better fire gaurds.

    i liked the smell of the fresh turned soil and how black the soil was when turned, the whole field looked cool after it was seeded. we used to put granular avadex down in the fall for cereal grains to control wild oats and granular treflan for oil seeds to control wild millet and some wild oat control, would rent barber spreaders from the elevator, what junk those were then we mounted gandy boxes on our deep tillage, much better.

    us guys that used disckers were some of the original direct seeders, have ih 300 discers, grew some mighty fine crops with those and seemed to be a lot less stress involved.only problem was the small fertilizer attachment but it was doable. rough fields was a problem but if you worked at them you could level them pretty good. used to go around the field one way one year then do a backwards cut the next.

    Guess ill spend the night in town....

    had no snow all winter here that is until yesterday, have about a foot on the ground and more coming today, haven't started my tractor all winter got it plugged in now but the temp is right around 32 degrees so it is going to be tough to blow it without plugging up.

    block heater fire

    neigbor of mine lost his 986 with loader and new bale shreader attached, he built a wind break out of bales, theblock heater dhorted out and it all went luck was with him it burned up to his shop and jd 644c and went out. about a month before i did a complete clutch job on it including i shaft brgs and seals and new flywheel and external linkages as well as new rear tires. he had good insurance but lost a real good tractor. i do not like to leave things plugged in in the shed or shop but in this climate it is a must.
