All very nice plowing. Do you do a split crown, I tried that this year, for practice before our plowing match.

They were all good.  I liked #4 the best.  Good full turn over, nothing sticking up out of the turned ground.  A good clean cut furrow with no dirt up on the land.  Just my opinion.

Hi Propane 1

We throw two out then we fill them in again to form what we call it a Feering then usually back it up with four furrow each side to give you eight tops then it is judged

The reason for throwing out and then throwing them back in again is so there is no ground anploughed

Hope this helps

Ps

This only applies to ploughing in stubble

When ploughing ley you throw one furrow in then go down other side and lay second furrow against the first then make an eight top feering then it is judged hope this is clear enough
