Since very few of us will be competing against you, can you tell us what the trick is to laying that first furrow down so straight?

Hi all

When we are out at our next ploughing match I will take some photos from start to finish you will get a good idea

As a matter of interest the Scottish ploughing championships are held locally on the 25 26 of October and we have been asked to put on a display this certainly be a feather in our cap and a long time coming will keep you all updated

:thank_you: :camera:

 

PS will try and get a video madeof our set up

Most of the folks on here have already seen my friend's Ford T tractor, but I'll show it again for you. His father used this for many years to plow the family garden. Notice the large rock for traction.

Should have told you to head east to the Plowing Match at Big Rock, IL. this past weekend... You could have gotten a first-hand look at how they set plows and stakes for plowing.

I got there for the pork chops and vendors. But I had the little woman with, so didn't see much plowing. From a distance I saw an old tractor with four large steel cleated wheels. What was that about???

That was a four wheel drive Massey Harris. I got some pictures. I'll start a new post, so as not to rob this one... if I can manage to figure how!

Thank you for sharing more photos! Is that an LA John Deere? Not sure if I'm guessing the right model.
