    Some of the seals on plows will seep oil if the plow has been sitting for a period of time because the seal starts to dry out. Angle cylinders and lift cylinders will both have some seep. Now after using the plow for awhile if it still leaks the seal could be bad. Check to see if your cylinder has pits in it. If so debris could have made a tear in the seal and then it would be a good idea to change it when you got a chance
