if your reseeding then for sure youll want to till it someway. especialy if its a heavy sod,because of course you need to get a good seed to soil contact, otherwise youll be throwing most( or all) of your seed money away. what you may consider though,is simply running your field cultivator over it,and seeing what happens first.often times just ripping up a sod forming grass will do wonders for it as far as stimulating new growth. fescue for instance many places will really benifit by this every 3-4 years. depending on what type of grass you have of course,you may consider overseeding to a clover adapted to your location.its often cheaper than a grass seed to plant,and will help a pasture not only by extending your grazing days but helps the grass by supplying nitrogen.renovate and replant in succeding years when either clover or grass chokes out the other.

Years ago a field cultivator with narrow more than two inches wide, was known in some areas as a "quack digger". Couple years of fallow cultivation, bringing the quack roots up so the rhizomes could dry in the sun, would kill the quack. Is that what you mean by "quacking"?

I dont know what your calling a "quacker" but maybe a feild cultivator? First ( and foremost)check with the person who owns the place,but often time renovating a pasture can help them . A lot would depend on what type of grass etc. Some grasses benifit with tillage some dont. If your planning on overseeding a clover or the like into a feild for more early spring /late fall grazing,youll definity want to do some form of tillage most times. In either case check with the true owner first. Work out a plan with them before you start (preferably in writing). You dont want to get caught in a deal where you put a lot into a pasture and then lose it,and conversly he may not want whatever it is your wanting to do. Make sure your going to benifit before you do too much. Remember its rented ground your working on and subject to his whims if that makes sense.
