Harrowing Ground


Neighbor Michael Williams was using a large disk harrow yesterday afternoon to prepare land to plant barley for use as silage next spring for his family’s dairy cows in Grays Chapel, North Carolina. He was working this year’s corn ground. By rotating crops, he will maximize production without wearing out the fertility of his land.
