Model farming kit competition


Recommended Posts

this is a competition to see who has the nicest machinery outfit in relation to various aspects of farming. there is no prise other then the nicest Kit title  ::)

although we'll cover various areas the first round will deal with cultivations for cereals. So post up pics of the gear ye use on your model farms be it using plough or minimum tillage methods,  :) as every farm is different with different policies!!!!

on your first post say how many acres your farming and mention the tractor lineup, and try to keep it realistic, pretend finance is an issue on your farms  ;)::)

once all the pics are up ill organise a vote, so entries for the comp will close on the third week of April..... gives everyone a bit of time to sort out the best setup.

Please dont comment on anyones pics till after the closing date as it has the potential to run off topic  ;D

So start posting
