COMPETITORS were looking to plough ahead at Haselor.
The village played host to 120 competitors on Thursday, September 19, as part of The Forest of Arden Agricultural Society’s 65th annual ploughing and hedging match.
Spokeswoman Sue Westmacott said: “Ploughing is never as easy as it looks, a good eye and plenty of hands on experience produces dividends when it comes to competition work.
“Many prospective ploughmen have stood in awesome wonder whilst watching a true master at work. Skill is something that cannot be mechanically replicated, and never is this more obvious until one watches a master ploughman.
“Exactness is of the essence and every blade of grass and stubble on the block must be buried within a specified time limit, furrows must be identical, smooth and free from holes. Straightness is paramount.”
