Competition plough #1

In Europe Ploughing Matches are highly competitive, and many modify standard ploughs to achieve better quality work to win the class of ploughing they enter into.
Dowdeswell were the largest plough manufacturer in Britain for many years. Many ploughmen use these ploughs as a basis for modification

Many ploughmen here custom build their own boards. They will use a standard board and add extra metal on the top and rear to create their own unique boards. If you look carefully, you can sometimes see the join area on the rear side of the board. It happens on Dowdeswell and Kv boards especially.

KFD68, any idea what boards are on that Dowdeswell? They don't look like TCN's or UCN's. Are they a competition board?

Nice photos BUT someone has stolen the disc coulters & skims off your plough :lol:

Here the mixed farmers use disc coulters on all furrows and the cropping farmers use a disc on the rear furrow only - to give clean cut furrow wall.

All ploughs sold here are "reversible" from 2 to 12 furrows. You start on one side of the field, backwards & forwards, and finish off with the headlands. NO dead or open furrows, NO marking out in lands. Simple and fast.

They do practice "no-till or min-till" with cultivators in the grain farming areas BUT they are starting to have persistant weed problems which can only be solved by ploughing.

Ploughing buries surface trash and manure, so no carry over of pests & diseases from year to year.

Pretty cool.In a country where you get lots of rain and dont have to (flood)irrigate,why do you need two-way plows?Cant you just "no-till",or use a one-
way plow like the guys in the midwest do?
