Zach Johnson, the “Millennial Farmer” is a 5th-generation farmer who’s spent his life growing, working, and learning on his family’s farm. His wit and dry sense of humor appeal to children and adults alike. A product of the millennial generation, his appreciation of new technology blends with his old-fashioned work ethic, and he offers a unique ability to deliver his message in a way that resonates with lifelong farmers as well as those with no knowledge of agriculture.
With growing consumer awareness about where their food comes from, Zach has identified the need for an independent voice from the front lines of agriculture. Zach actively promotes agriculture by sharing his day-to-day experiences in the agriculture world while providing farmer-to-farmer education to help facilitate a collaborative conversation between farmers and the public.

DUMB QUESTION for a new guy. Could that downed crop be round bailed or harvested for silage?
Tom Vicarri LtColDaddy71

Further South, and out West, they have longer growing seasons and can often double crop. I am Gen I, very much a new guy, and a lot of my land is wooded, rockey, on a huge hill (cliff practically),but it was cheap! After 20 years of trying different things, playing around with 50 acres of test plots while working on my own corn hybrids, I can't truly say what's best for me, yet along tell other people how they should doing it. I"m in Northern IL, land is through the roof, hence why I've focused more on developing old hunting lands into pasture and crop lands. IT'S A LOT OF WORK! I'm doing protein, row crops, and even 30 acres of market vegetables. I have nothing that comes to close to what you have in infrastructure, and am green with envy seeing your shop and bins, but in a constructive way that motivates me. I do however own or control just shy of 3k ares now in total. I've made some BIG equipment investments, an contract for organic corn that made that possible, only due to the fact that they guarantee the trucks will be waiting to take it away, because I have essentially no storage infrastructure, I'm backing my anything mechanized into self built 3 sides structures to keep them dry and parking my equipment under the open sky. We're turning a scary corner here as of late. I had a pretty high paying off farm job and with all the COVID-19 stuff, I volunteered to a very limited pay, up to 5 year extended period of time off. I didn't have to, I'm in the airline industry and everything is based on seniority. I have enough that operations would have to be pretty much shut down for me to get furloughed, but this is a big sign to jump into farming with both feet. My General Manager retired after working 5 years longer than he wanted to, and the ball is 100% in my court. If you ever make it up around Tiskilwa IL, you're more than welcome to all the food and beer you can consume, and free use of the cabin by the lake. Just let me pick your brain! God bless.

Wow! Building an electric fence is a lot easier there than the Texas Panhandle. I took two pieces of one inch square tubing, one long 12 inches and one short 4 inches and welded them together to form an L, welded two triangular one eighth inch thick flat steel in the corner to brace it, stuck a grade eight one inch diameter X 1.5 inch long bolt into the short tubing at the outside of the L and welded it in place. Then when we go to the field we get one quarter inch X 36 inch rebar, place the tool over the end and use a two pound hammer to drive them into the ground. Usually they drive in easy but there can be hard spots where you have to hit the end of the rebar pretty hard, hence the special tool that keeps your hand away from the end of the rebar. Then we hook the wire through the insulator, slide it over the pole to height and tighten the nut until it holds in place.

@ 12:15 I had one of those mixers in a lathe, to turn a damaged bearing diameter once. It came from some food processing plant. It got pretty scary looking when I had it turning fast enough for the work I had to do. I have a very short, poor quality video clip of it spinning in the "big Monarch lathe".

🤔🤔🤔 You say that farmers may have to harvest that wind beaten, fallen over crop, in a sad way. Why is it a problem for the machinery?🤔?. Explain please. I really feel for those in that area. But, I suppose there is a bright side for some... Others may get a better price for their crop. And, maybe, if so, could donate something to those who have suffered, if someone set up some organisation/charity to get something sorted.🤔🤞😁. Just an idea 🤔🤞😁. Rich UK.

😲😲WOW😲😲.. That tower at 17:05, was just amazing 🥺🥺😭. How a wind can get SOOOOOO strong, and in such a small width, and stay that way for so long, just amazes me 😲. It's as if someone had put invisible walls up in the sky for it to follow (😲 conspiracy theorists do your best/worst😂). Awesome, and awful at the same time eh.! Let's hope this is the last for those involved for a while 🙏. Rich UK.

When you said about that crop that would have to be harvested because of insurance reasons, I would have liked it if you'd explained a bit more about it. And.. when you go to someone else's farm, I'd like to see a bit more of the equipment they use. Apart from that, LOVE the channel 🥰 🥰🥰😘 Rich UK 😘

Hello, if anyone wants to donate to the FFA (Future Farmers of America) it would help a lot. I lived in a small country county up in north GA. I took classes in school (FFA was a class to take) it helped me learn all about the culture of Farming and the cultural trait is so much different from normal society. Farmers are slowly dying off and we need to help the Future Farmers of America and make sure we have great American Farmers that wants to keep the culture going. Anything will count, Proceeds going towards the Old Time Farmers and depending on how much, were going to keep the dream alive. We appreciate everything yall can give us, thank yall.
