Following. Did you make that roller yourself or purchase it? Does it work well as a cultipacker?

I did not make it. Im 35, and that thing has been around this ranch longer than I have. My grandad bought it from a farm that was going out of business a long time ago. It was actually part of a set. There are lugs on the back side to hook up the other rollers.

Although I have never used a cultipacker, I have used it like a cultipacker, and gotten a good stand. The main thing is you are compacting the soild to get good seed to soild contact.

That roller is very nice and for all intents and purposes is a cultipacker. I have one that looks just like yours only the "V's" are slightly deeper. Very nice.

How are the beets growing? Are they eating them yet?

You can see a few of those Beets in that picture. THe deer dont really start hitting this plot until its starts getting cold. They just dont really want to jump the fence if they dont have to.

Now, my new plot on the other side of the property is not fenced off, and they keep it mowed down. I have intentions of fencing it off next year after season ends, so that I dont have to trap my cows out of this pasture. Im going to put up an exclusion cage this weekend so that I can how it should be growing. Maybe I'll take some pics too.

Cool! Thanks for the info. I figure using one of those culverts to piece together a roller would be a lot cheaper than buying a brand new cultipacker.

Thats crazy how your oats are doing better in the shade and how sometimes the shade can help growth other times its a bad thing.

It's hard to tell becuase they spend most of time on the otherside of the feeder. That is where it's most ate down. The times I have walked out there at night, I have seen as many as 10. also, There is a doe & her twins that basically live in there.

What is the difference between this side of the feeder and the other? You can tell by the picture that its getting hit harder.

I had to do things different this year. It stayed too wet in August for me to get in there and spray like I normally do, and I had actually given up hope that I would even plant this year. The hay field plot was full of johnson grass.....6' tall in most places. Anyway, we finally got all the hay baled, and put up, and the weather stayed clear enough to dry out my plots to disc.

So I disced them over last monday evening. I set the old offset disc to its most aggresive setting, and let'er have it. The ground disced pretty nicely, but still had plenty of moisture in it. I let the ground dry all week.

Saturday morning after a nice opening day hunt, we got to work. I set the big offset disc to its straight setting, and broke up the big clods. It was still too moist to drag after overseeding, but it did break up nicely. So we just overseeded, rolled, and moved on. As you can see in the pic above, there was allot of thatch, so mayhe that will work in my favor. The hay field plot is only 1 acre, but we ended up planting about 5 acres total around the ranch. Every year I seem to do a little more, here and there. Trying different things out. Man it was a pretty day.....

Pics to come....

I got mine in around Sept. 20 and caught a few showers here and there. It's coming in real good. I planted feed oats and wheat from the feed store. The deer are eating it good, and you can't beat the price. Looks like good rain chances all next week.

I always get seed oats. Much higher germination rates. Hopefully rolling them in is keeping the birds from getting them all.

With you there..I got about a half inch the week after and now its been 2 weeks with nothing but hot air. I am afraid to run up and check cameras and see my burnt up rye and oats. Looks like a good chance mid next week from what I have read online.

Did throw and mow oats this year. Didnt even spray with herbicide. still have some Johnson grass coming up, but the oats are doing great! just fertilized, and have 80% chance of rain wed.

It ought to be. I doubled the rate! 200# on 1 acre.
When I mowed it, the Johnson grass was over my head! I got pretty good cover I think.
