Third generation farmers Kenny Paterson and son Cameron are currently farming 500 acres of crops near the Bridge of Earn, Perthshire. Growing winter wheat,
winter and spring barley, vine peas and potatoes. All crops are ploughed on the farm with no minimum tillage. Kenny says “it saves fuel and the plough is easier pulled”.
Having always been blue on the farm since Ford they are currently running two New Holland tractors. As acreage on the farm increased Kenny recently purchased
a second plough on the farm a New Holland PHH 5975 XLD plough to increase output and efficiency with the short window for winter ploughing. “We mostly carry out
winter ploughing as we have heavy land and it leaves it more open for spring cultivation” said Kenny.
Since purchasing the plough in February 2019, Kenny has ploughed 300 acres. Kenny describes the performance of the plough as “Excellent no complaints it stays
in the ground even in harder soils and when clay was wet it turned over well”.
Kenny has also found that it is “good at burying the trash” whilst also carrying out a “quiet and very smoot operation”.
The ease of adjustment is a feature Kenny favours “there is no need to change anything when set it is up”. Kenny is also impressed with the transport wheel
“the transport wheel easy to put down use more often”.
