Indiana Plow Day / Spring Planting Session

Postby BigMatt » Thu Jan 19, 2012 11:51 am

I am going to put this out there for anyone who would like to attend the Indiana Spring Plow Day / Planting Session. If we get enough interest, we can also turn this onto a CubFest with projects and a workshop.

Last year was such a crazy weather year that our plow day was on the dry side and our disking/planting session was too wet.

This year I will pray for better weather, but even with bad weather we have plenty of room indoors to work on Cubs. I am planning on having it May 5th and 6th and any early attendees are welcome to come.

I would like to spend Saturday plowing and early Sunday disking and planting. I know a lot of people will have to get on the road on Sunday, so we will only be planting about 1 acre of sweet corn that day. I am going to stagger all 3 plantings by one month each so we will have good spacing between harvest times. With enough interest, we can also put together a project schedule for tractors to work on.

We have a good sized shop with a lot of tools here and a lot of room under roof for working on Cubs. I am not a Cub mechanic, but if we can get some of the senior guys to come, we should be in good shape for anything anyone can think of.

I will provide lunch and dinner on the 5th and 6th.

If you are planning to bring a Cub to work on for specific problems, please post what you will be working on so we can make sure to have the right tools and expertise here.

I may have a plow for the 140 by then and if I do, you can try it out.

By the way, I bush hogged about 3 acres since the new plugs and wires and it is still running great!

Well guys, since this is the sticky, I didn't want anyone to miss that the Plow Day is cancelled.

Thanks,

Matt
