Jack, I think you are right. I found a corn seeder on an older post and the buckets looked the same as our outer buckets, but I didn't know why the conical ones would be in the middle. It's a really neat piece of equipment. Do you think it could still be used with large grain seed or it would just dump way too much? Perhaps we could sow the grain with some compost, as our pasture has been grazed on and off for almost 100 years. We have a grain drill on property too, but this one looks to be in better so I went to it first. Now I am thinking I should take a look at that one also and see if it is salvageable for a decent cost. For sure either one will be less than $20,000 to get going, which is the cost of a brand new one. Thank to both of you who replied, I am very happy we have some options. Perhaps I will post a photo of our grain drill so I can get an opinion on that one as well. It's a lot bigger
