I got myself a '67 2510 this winter with 46A loader. What an upgrade from the '50B with aftermarket 3 point. I'm using my new toy to build food plots on a little 45 acre swap/wood lot in NW Ohio. I have a 6 foot bush hog, 8 ft cultipacker, and 5' 3pt cultivator. I've carved out some small areas for food plots in the woods. I have some stumps that are in the food plot, cut even to the ground. What implement should I aquire to break up the ground to plant food plots? I'm afraid a 3 bottom plow will have difficulty with the stumps and be cumbersome in small areas. Would a bigger/heavier 3 point double gang disc tear up the ground and ride over my stumps?

I'm more of a hunter than farmer, advice is welcome. I'm hoping to plant clover/chicory maybe some soy beans.
Is a 10' drag disc better than a big 3 pt in terms of ripping up the ground without a plow?

If you find a field cultivator (also called a field tiller) like this one used, it will trip over stumps if you pull it slowly. A variety of manufacturers have built a version of this thing, which is based on a Harry Ferguson design from the 40s.

I have to dissagree with you on that, it will go over small rocks but that action that makes it look like it will trip over small stumps is more of a vibrator action to help break up the ground. When I was farming I used the one I still own more than I did the chisel plow that I had. Bought this Ferguson unit back in about 81 or 82. And the 7 shank unit will load down a 60 MAX PTO HP tractor altho they were sold for use with a MAX PTO HP tractor of 23. I would never take mine in stumps or roots as I would not want to ruin it.

I would say get a flexible and not rigid disk in a pull type. True the flexible will not cut as deep per pass as a rigid disk but you will have a lot less blade breakage. Gust go over things more often in as many directions as you can, more directions equals a better cut.

a old disc plow would be great for breaking up your food plots.
it will ride over the stumps, that was what it was made for, rough ground plowing,

stumps are going to be hard on any disc that you pull and the more weight that you put on it may cause it to break blades when it rolls over the stumps. Then you have a broken blade out there waiting for a back tire.

However disc plows are going to be hard to find, you might be best to find a old disc in rough shape and just use it up until you get your plots in good shape.

then invest in better equipment.

The cheapest thing to use would be a disk of either type you mention. A drag type or pull type will work the same. You will not find many 10 foot three point ones. A good six footer would work fine for your small food plots. Pull type disk use a hydraulic cylinder to lift them. If your loader is using the selective control valve now than you would have to unhook one side to use a pull type disk. I used to have a six foot three point disk I used it to rough up pasture in places to reseed new grass. I keep it on the rear and my loader on the front. I would put logs on the top of the disk frame to make it heaver and cut better.

Notched blade will cut the trash and turf better. If you get the newer short line disks, that are not collectible, you should be able to find a good used one for three to five hundred dollars. Common brands: King Cutter, Pittsburg, Taylorway are just a few off the top of my head.
