FORGET about automatic tramlines and Isobus connections, this old seed barrow has been faithfully carrying out re-seeding for three generations of the Scott family – first at Pyatknowe Farm, Broughton, and then at Netherton, Hyndford Bridge, near Lanark. Pictured, operating again this year, the 100-year-old machine still makes a perfect job when set at the recommended 'three matchsticks' width, sowing at a rate of 32 lbs (14.5kg) to the acre – and it is always exact, reported John Scott, the latest generation to use the Sherriff and Co-built seeder. Can anyone beat a 100-year-old machine that works every year?
