SO guy's decided to bring the Valpadana out for a full till of the little paddock, and to say I was blown away with this old beast was an understatement, it did a stellar job, and left the old rock hard soil, soft and ready to work

Well got into the garden area this afternoon and got the first single run in (1 of 5) for this area, came out a treat, I will finish the other 4 tomorrow in the morning and then in the afternoon we will plant the 40 tomato seedlings in OMFG
excited just a bit, the area has come up way better than I expected

I will have half of the bottom run fenced off with the Brahma's and that will be tilled and a good sorghum and manure mix going in and let it go nuts, then open it up for the chooks, each individual paddock has a doorway so we can let the chooks in and out at anytime :)
