I appreciate what you guys have said to me. Like I said before, I am new to this, so any help is great. I am actually not the one insisting on using the grain drill, the previous manager here still has his hands in the pot and is the one who is adamant about the drill. He ran the farm for 11 years and is having a hard time letting someone else make decisions- understandably so.
I am going to try to talk to him about broadcast seeding. I have brought up different seeding methods before and he is nervous because we spend several thousand dollars on seed and last year, less than half germinated and the rest was eaten by birds....talk about expensive bird food! Anyway- I will probably let him do it his way this year and then we can try something new next year. It's too close to seeding time for us to be undecided. We are in such a warm climate that we are supposed to seed next month.
I am thrilled to know what that drill was made for though. We always assumed all of the farm equipment we have lying around is useless. This property was purchased in 1991, already closed and condemned. It took 3 years to open it again and another 5 to get the farm going.
