Had a soil test guy come out to soil sample. He couldn’t get his probe in the ground this was before frost in some steep hills. I was aerwaying it and hoping for better yield. Ground is super compacted going to run an inline ripper into it shouldn’t be a problem but wanted other opinions thanks. This will be my second year on the ground

Rip across the slope, not down. Don't rip in swales where the water runs. The soil will be loose enough and give way with a rain. Same thing at bottom of field. Don't rip within 20' of where the water runs out of the field. However big of horse you have, its probably not big enough. I have a 5 shank DMI ecolo-tiger with mid-row shanks. In some conditions it will stop 45,000#, 450 hp tractor. Have the fuel supplier on speed dial.
