How many?

The old seed drill mentioned elswhere has suddenly moved itself to the barn. When I examined it up close I found it has this excellent dial:

How often do you see a dial calibrated in Acres...



Now I am confused as to it's purpose. You fill up the drill with seed, and work on the field, pausing every now and then to see how many acres your 8 bushels of seed covered? Is that it.?

Rather trial and error, but better than no information I guess.
