Grooming questions
« on: January 26, 2014, 09:32:59 PM »
Have groomers in the past smoothed out the mud in trails in corn and other fields before they froze?

Do the trail markers consider setting up trails when possible in corn fields to parallel the corn rows?

Thanks to the groomer guys and the trail workers.

Depending on conditions, sometimes the groomer is able to take the tops off some of the ruts/rows in the fields. This year harvesting season was terribly wet, causing some deeper than usual ruts out there. As for trying to do some of this before they freeze? Some crops are removed later than others leaving a very small window just to try and get the trails marked. The direction that the trails are set up stays relatively consistent year to year. We really just need a snow storm with less wind for a change so a better base can be built up on the trails.

Hope this helps!
