Cleaning Up Winter

It seems safe to say that Winter is over in GriggsDakota. 
We may still have a dusting of snow. 
But the stacks of bales have disappeared in GriggsDakota. 
Our thoughts have turned to filling the grain bins for another season. 
 A fence now separates the livestock from the field.
The field's surface contains the season's organic trash from hay, straw and manure. It needs to be cut up and worked into the soil. 
Grandpa Sonny took the Case IH 8950 hooked to the Wishek disc and went to work.  
 The heavy duty Wishek disc can cut through the leftovers from the Winter feeding station and loosen the topsoil. 
We can then smooth the surface with a pass from the Salford RTS before seeding. 
We are ready to plant corn in GriggsDakota.
