Recalibrated seeder saves time

We decided to recalibrate our seeder so we wouldn't have to pour excess alfalfa seed into it. Additionally, we could ensure that we were getting proper seeding rates which ultimately saves us on seed costs.

We began recalibrating the seeder by putting the suggested pounds into the hopper, and then we went and planted the specific acreage, stopping from time to time to check how much seed was left in the hopper. By doing so, we could determine how far the calibration of our seeder was off this spring.
