    Looks good mate, will you be adding more rows down slope of this swale when you get a chance?

    You are looking for a sharefarmer to work your property now? Hows that going, or maybe a teacher eh! Could be a good thing,northern NSW needs a regenag centre to attract the teachers to the area.

    see how wet it gets
    this place lends itself to that sort of activity

    Thanks Andrew...I took the lazy link.
    All the best with it. Will look forward to your updates.
    PS I like your signature line (we are living eternal South due to everyone else's correctly placed trees + their adequately diverted water problems)

    Did you consider a Yeoman's Plow with all that space you have, rather than the swale?

    It's comforting to see, though, no matter where you go, a lot of our landscape looks similarly degraded. Sickly Eucs amongst lots of tired grass.

    i keyline ploughed about 10 ac below with graham hoeme chisel

    i have a begg seeder that i want to toughen up and use for that purpose
    the swale seems to be a good method for planting trees organically ,i also as a controll sprayed ripped and planted trees in a conventional straight line in some other areas of the property

    I knew it. That's why you called Eucalypts a Weed.

    I looked at a quick video of the Graham Hoeme plow, and first off, I'm no broadacre-ist, but isn't that a conventional ripper? As in, there are serious fundamental differences between that and a Yeomans?

    Edit: Nevermind. I google imaged it and could see much better the design. Similar but different.

    PA and most of his"landsmen" started out with GrahamHoeme
    then evolved better machinery the pasture cropping lads are getting pretty close to what is required ,machinery is expensive so i scrounge bits where i can
    hence the begg seeder with its sturdy construction and reliable seed distribution mechanism
    i need to make its tynes more agressive and add presswheels , somthing to do in my sparetime
    what does SOP stand for??
