 Re I need help with tractor advice

My family owns a 350+ acre peice of land on the Flint River in South Georgia. There has not been any significant work done to the land, especially to maintain the roads or provide food plots for game. I am about to graduate college and seek complete my dream of working the land. I seek any suggestions as to tractor manufacturer and size, but more importantly I need suggestions as to what implements I need. Any help would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!
Thanks,
Alex

 Re I need help with tractor advice

Alex, I don't think anyone can help you without knowing more about the land and what you intend to do with it. Is it flat, level, hilly, grassland, timber, brush, etc.? What do you intend to do with it? Raise cattle, other livestock, grow crops? What kind of crops? How much of the land will you use and how much, if any, will you leave natural? Will you be using the tractor year round? Air-conditioned cabs are sure nice, not only for heat, but if you're stirring up dust, grass and weed seed, etc. In other words, we'd just need a lot more information from you before any of us could give an valid answers.

Alex, I am glad to see you have posted on THIS board. I am sorry that your other request turned into a forum for two guys to hassle their brands.
If you will give more information about your plans, you will get very good and sincere advice from this board. I learn very much by reading regularly.

 Re I need help with tractor advice

Hope you will follow Bird's request. I suppose that part of the issue is just getting a clear idea of what sort of production the land will be put to. Tractor questions really depend on the type of production and how much time is available to work it. Quite a few visions of working 350 acres may get into two tractors. Unlike clothing, tractors really don't come in 'one size fits all.' Of course, listening to many women, you'd might conclude the same about clothing.

There are some archive discussions that get into some of the basics in making a decision. It might be good read them. One of the basic ideas is that tractor size is inversely related to work time. Big and small tractors can do mostly the same jobs. Small tractors just take longer to do it unless tight maneuvering is required. Of course, compacts in generally don't do well at tasks like moving large round hay bales.

 Re I need help with tractor advice

Alex,

There are alot of questions yet to answer before a size can be determined. But, as a man who has been on a farm his whole life let me give you some basic advice.

You cannot farm without a disc!!!! This tool is so versital that I can't imagine a farm without one.

A rotary cutter will always be in use during the growing season.

A FEL.(front end loader) is another must. Uses are too numorous to mention!!!

A box scraper. Grade those lanes!!!! A blade will be a little cheaper the the box is much better at filling potholes.

As far as size is concerned, the best suggestion I can give you is as follows:

Get as big as you can afford, The wallet is the determining factor. Big tractors can do small work, you may feel a little cramped is small quarters but you will be able to get the job done. If you have 350 acres to work with, I can't think of any situation where a big tractor will not fit. But if you are going to go out and plow 40 acres a two bottom plow with 16 inch bottoms will give you a cut of 32 inches, and your speed will be less than 4 mph. Can you imagine how long it would take to mow a 40 acre lawn with a 32" mower??

When farming, timeing is everything. I live in Indiana, not southern Ga. so we are a lttle more crunched for time up here. But no matter where you live, if you are planning on acomplishing a task on the weekend, it will rain on that weekend and you will be set back one week 'till the next weekend. If you miss two weekends, and lived in Indiana, you have lost the window of oppertunity for a maximum crop. Any day delayed from that will cost you in yield. Food plots do not count in this eqazion because all that is needed is food for the critters and they care little about your econamic plight.

I hope this give you enough info to get thinking. and remeber to have fun at this!!!
