Default John Deere 445 engine oil

Hi all,
I just picked up a John Deere 445. I am here in Minnesota where it can get cold. Just wondering what the oil recommendation should be? Should I use 10W30 all year round or should I use 5W30 during the winter months?

10w-30 syn year round, or you can do 5w-30 dino for just the winter if you want. Guess it depends on how often you change it.

I believe the manual recommends 5/30 providing you don't get much under -30* in the winter.
