    Default Farming????

    So we have a few acres at our family farm and it might need to get reseeded this summer. Can the tilling be done just with like a 4 blade cultivator? Pa I might sound stil but I don't know about this stuff :P

    Few acres: like 2,3,4,5 more?
    4 blade cultivator: I assume you mean a rototiller. Is it a walk-behind or tractor mounted?
    Reseeded: with what?

    Honestly size wise I'm not sure it's like prolly 2-3miles x 1 mile? I have to take a look at the property lines and it would be all tractor mounted stuff, and seeded with crp seeds. Sorry if in not being very informing I don't know much about this haha

    Wow, for that much property you would need some big equipment. Your best bet would be to talk to the local agricultural extension agent. What condition is the land in at this point?

    1mile x 1 mile = 1 section = 640 acres.

    1 mile x 3 miles = 3 sections = 1920 acres.

    That's quite a spread. Something doesn't compute here. I thought we were talking about a few acres that you want to till.

    He might possibly be referring to his Grandparent's family farm. He mentioned this fact in another post in another member's thread. Just a thought?

    Lease it to someone. It's done here for corn and works great. They do everything. If it's. Hay ground you can make a deal for part of the hay if you have a use for it. Being unfamiliar with farming I wouldn't try learning with that much land. Just watch and learn from people that do it for a living. Then try a small piece if you want.
    Just a thought, I wish I had that much ground to use.
    Best of luck.
