    I will go around and take a picture of every field just for you . Really I don't think there is anything that is looking bad . I will go over to some away ground today that was drilled latter with a moores dd drill on probably our poorest ground and it don't look bad . I think Brisel will vouch for me on that as it is in the middle of his estate so probably drives past it more than we see of it .

    No just the centre section but you can buy the coulters to put in your own frame a jd750 was converted in France to pillar openers . A coulter costs around 1500 Canadian dollars approx.
