When You Take A Moldboard Plow To A No Till Farm

When You Take A Moldboard Plow To A No Till Farm
Doing a custom plowing job for my boss. I had an old friend (who passed a few years ago)whose main source of income was Alfalfa, whether it be hay or a seed crop. The soil around where I live is what we call hard ground, Gumbo. He would have issues with the drip lines of American Elm and Hackberry to name a few trees. He'd hook up his 7 shank Big Ox and it would take a while but he'd eventually get it into the beam on the Big Ox. Bear in mind he only did this when there was ample moister so he wouldn't rip out big chunks of clay and destroy the crop. He did loose some but it would thicken back up a little later. Just plowed 18 acres for the neighbors. And made an agreement to plow at least one field every year. So excited. But dang did that field roll over beautiful. Just pure perfection.
