Actually I thought it was a decent show.
Though we missed the air drill demo passes, it was still interesting to compare the field finish between all the units.Pottinger had this crazy contraption that was a double disc, then packer wheels, then planter, then harrows in one machine. Not for southern sask, that’s for sure!
First time I got to see DOT run. They trundled around with the Pattinson sprayer on one unit and switched between the seedmaster drill and a fert spreader with the other.
Was hoping to take a spin in the sprayers just to compare cab noise but got there just after 3 when they shut down.
For all the talk about plots, in the end I think most are a waste of time. Other than straw height, what really can you compare visually? Most things need to be harvestd to actually see differences.
Saw the steam guy, didn’t talk to him. The machine wasn’t there, just a booth in a tent.
Seriously though, why aren’t all sockets square on the end? It might not get used all that much, but it’s so simple. The Milwaukee tent was almost as busy as the beer gardens.
