Hi Sam from the country!

I went to a ploughing competition on Saturday. People used a tractor with a digger called a plough to make long, thin holes in the ground. These holes are called furrows. Seeds are planted in the furrows and grow into corn, which is used for making bread. A long time ago, horses were used to pull the plough – like Robbie in the picture.
There was a competition was to see who could make the straightest furrow! My friend Valerie had two goes. The first one was quite good but the second one was a bit wobbly!
