Local tractor group where I live is having a plow day Sept. 4. This plow day is for garden tractors, big tractors and horse/mule plow teams. They have 120 acres to plow. The location for the plow site is 11339 Feasby Weisner Rd. Van Wert, Ohio.

There is a planning meeting this Tuesday that I'm going to. I will pass on any infomation from that meeting. As of now I don't have a start time to post. I should a start time after the meeting Tuesday.

My email address is in my profile if you have any questions.

Here is a flyer for plow day:


We haven't had any rain in the last 2-3 weeks. The soil is dry and will be hard to plow if we don't have any rain this week.

We have not had any decent rain showers in the last 4 to 6 weeks. The soil is dry and hard. Someone tried to plow with a big tractor and plow today. They had problems getting the plow in the ground.

The weather forecast has a 50% chance of rain in it for Friday morning. I'm planning to go to plow day site after work and start a few lands for Saturday. I will let you know how it plowed tomorrow night.

It will be hard plowing if it don't rain. The plow day is a go even if it doesn't rain.

No rain..........The temps were 90-95 degrees with a 10-15 mph wind the last 3 days.

I tried to plow Friday afternoon. I had problems getting the plow in the ground. I stood on Dad's plow when he plowed a round. We still had places the plow wouldn't go in. I weigh around 270 pounds.

I help set up a 3 point-3 bottom plow. There were cracks 1 inch wide in the bottom of the furrow. This was 7 inches deep.

I will have 3 IH Cub Cadets (70-100-149) at the plow day.

Dave here.
I went to the plow day yesterday. Had a great time seeing all of the tractors and meeting new people. I have 57 pictures to re-size and post.
Merk was not joking about the ground being hard. It sounded as if you were pulling your plow across concrete. Garden tractor size plow.
Even the big tractors were struggling to pull plows there.
