Plough

Perhaps the most important farm implement used by the early settlers was the animal drawn plough. It was used to dig the soil and make it softer and better for the crops to grow. Most ploughs were pulled by teams of horses or oxen and were equipped with a ploughshare for cutting a furrow, a blade or coulter for forming the walls of the furrow and a mould board to shape the furrow.
