Seeder on a Loader Makes Terrace Work Easy

The newly built terraces on my farm were a lot of work to seed, so I put together something to help. I mounted an old wagon endgate seeder (driven by an orbit motor), which was from a reel-drive on a bean platform, onto a frame attached to my loader. The loader matches the height of the terrace, and the orbit motor lets me change the rate of rye and brome mix applied. It took about a day to build.
