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.

Can anyone explain what those pits/drains are actually for? They don't look like you should dump corn in? But what the hell else are they there for then?
Bro that's awesome I am also a farmer in India love and support from India

Man, brings back memories. We had a similar situation with a grain pit on our farm in NE Nebraska. Our method was to tie a rope around a wet/dry vac and send somebody down. Not the most enjoyable of jobs.

Zach, if you guys have access to a decent compressor, a 1 1/2 or 2" diaphram pump will do a much better job of moving trash without plugging up.

To break up the corn in the bin, get a kettlebell weight from Walmart and tie a rope to the handle. Toss in and retrieve. Better than getting stuck in a corn avalanche.

Full trash pump. Just put the hose down and it will bring it all up -corn and water without you going down. And, very fast.

Can the water in the corn sump and other "pits" be used as fertilizer on a new crop. It would seem so, since it is not true "fecal-matter-sewage" but plant matter without enzymes. Or is it too acid to be used and merely sprayed as weed killer.

The easy way to go down in the pit would be to, Put on your safety harness for the silo, attach a chain to the harness, attach the other end to the bucket on the old tractor, and lower you down.

Why don't you just put a structure over your grain pit and make it a drive through with doors. Problem solved. BIG farmer friend of mine has his setup like that and it is great.

If I may make a suggestion about silo safety. Can you think about making an episode devoted to silo safety? A lot of people are unaware of silo safety and what to do if some does become entrapped in grain. Trying to save an entrapped person often causes more deaths. I work for Laidig Systems and we manufacture industrial silo reclaimers so I am very familiar with silo entry i.e air monitoring, having a hole watch and lockout tag-out. As you said silos kill. Raising awareness of the very real dangers is a great cause. Thanks for doing this. Contact me if I cam help.

put a funnel on the suction hose for the pit the wide aperture allows water and solids will drop due to the reduced flow rate at the mouth we use this where there is gravel in sumps

You guys don't seem to practice confined space practice but i know you have it as i have worked with guys from the states who use it. goes for grain bins as well I watched mike mitchell and laura farms going into places where O2 levels can be depleted and no rescue kit BA kit maybe you can use your influence to promote training

Just change out the pto shaft or does you green tractors don't do that.😁 the New Hollands have changeable shafts.

It's possible your pump wasn't strong enough to push that much water up the pipe. Or it was clogged.... Or a combination of both.

Zach. I may not always agree with your stances on things, but i really appreciate you showing how a farm operates down to the smaller details, and sharing your feelings/opinions in that regard. I hope that your family has a great harvest, stays safe ( i saw that your dad had a knee incident, hope he recovers quickly and completely), and you continue to share your life as a farmer. I also hope you vote this year. It's been a rough year for Americans, but it did not have to be this bad. I cordially invite you to look into politics (on youtube or elsewhere) and policy. I hope that doing so informs you on the facts as much as your videos have allowed me to see the "other side" of where my food, hand sanitizer, and so many other products come from. Stay well, my friend. #nofarmsnofood #smallfarms #farmsnotdevelopments

Hi, I'm not a farmer, the only thing I am growing is old, but it would appear to me that if you were to use a piece of that grate at the bottom of your pit just above the opening, and another piece about 10% further up it might create a baffle system and keep your bins from getting jammed, It's just a thought.

I made the mistake of buying a grain vac. It needs work. But setting it up, fighting with hoses... I wish I had passed on it. For winter have you considered going over what is required for a farm grain truck. DOT inspection, insurance, self DOT, that your wife could drive it, but someone hired to drive it couldn’t (unless they had valid CDL, Health card. My cousin wants to buy a semi, gtsin traiker. They are cheap. But maintenance isn’t. Fill the slower part of the year.

Millenial Farmer, you were asking about camera options. I am using a DJI Action for my channel. It's been rugged so far, easy to use (which is important for a non-techie like me), has a front and rear screen, image stabilization that is surprisingly good, and it has voice control which is handier than one might think for those of us who are up to our elbows in dirt on a regular basis.

i see alot off farmers /people using compressed air to blow bust/dirt off them IT IS one big NO NO as it can kill you air causes the blood not to flow properly and so can cause an a heart attack so please STOP doing it

7:05 Hmmm, the pump or hose getting blocked by the stuff in there is a common problem when you pump water with solid stuff in it. I remember it a lot from my active time at the volunteer fire department when we needed to pump water out of basements after a storm. Sometimes there is SO much stuff in there (mostly a mix of things from the basement and things that where flooded in with the water.) that the pump is more blocked than everything else. I remember one time where we had multiple basements flooded with really muddy water from the fields and there was a over 25 centimetres thick layer of mud left in the basements when the water was out. For such situations i whould suggest a "Mini-Chiemsee" pump. This pump is absolutely wonderful when you need to pump dirty water with leaves or other solid stuff in it because the mini version is blockage-free for stuff till 65mm in size and it can pump up to 1600 liters per minute. It pretty handy when you need to pump dirty water more often. Here is the company that produces them. The only thing is, i dont know if they ship into the US...

Be careful handling that material its more dangerous than you think. I had a friend who was getting rid of some old mulch that had been through several cycles & remained. he got a lung infection . All antibiotics made were ineffective & only steroids kept him alive for 3 yrs & he died at age 34 after a few yrs of hell dealing with meds & weight gain from 200lbs to almost 500lbs because of the steroids . Sewveral times he gaines & lost till he died from that infection. Take Care my friend !!!
