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.

2018 we had a problem with one number of corn that went down. Neighbor across the road had a WHOLE bunch of it planted, because it had been a very good yielding corn for the last couple years. 220+ bu/acre isn't so great when 20 bu/ac are laying on the ground behind the combine.

Why do you all wait so long, until the corn gets so down and nasty,, to harvest,,, also are you still using the old Fairbanks-moorse hit and miss engine on the combines?

have you considered a corn reel to keep the corn moving through the header feel your misery looks as if we are going into 2020 with about 800 acres left and we are sitting out another snow storm. we are leaving 6 to 10 rows on the boarders of every field with snow banks

This is why you pick the shit flat corn in light and the good corn at night. Oh yea, that grain header shit is for the birds. Remember insurance says it's a zero if it's flat anyways.

50 to 60 years ago my family in southern Illinois did not combine corn we hand picked it. We tried to have at least 4 adult men, two on each side of a wagon, we walked along as the tractor or mule pulled wagon would move along very slow down a row of corn. The driver was usually an older child 10 to 15 years old. The smaller children would pick up some of the lower hanging corn and cobs that had fallen to the ground. Most of the fields were 10 to 40 acres, but there were times I have helped with fields as large as 80 to 100 acres.

You may not believe me but I spent a lot of time working on a dairy and meat farm. I remember working in a silage tower and having the silage stuff falling on my head as I spread it around. I also worked in the slaughterhouse which I noticed you do not have. This is Grand Fork British Columbia and when I was 16/17. You probably dismissed me when I drew your attention, to belt drive and exposed electric motors. Has anyone lost their arm yet? Any way Love your stuff and you talking to a guy whose knows something about sylage....do you?

Dang Zach that was the best video showing the struggles of getting the crop off. Raised on a farm in Michigan I've been thru some of the same struggles. Back in the day I used a new Holland pull behind picker and it would fall thru the ice throwing the head off the rows. I used some choice words. I'm sure you did too off camera.

Have a few acres here in Iowa haven't had any corn flat yet but have used the bean header in the past just have to run it slower then normal and check the cutters will be rougher on them. But it is better then leaving money on the ground.

And i dont know how it is with combines, but you should turn of your machine when you are working with moving parts like that. My father was pulling out gras from a pickup in a baler, and suddenly the baler started, cut of one of his fingers.
