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.

Science of water vs mud: Water is (effectively) incompressible. So when you drive over water-soaked soils, the water prevents the mud from being able to shear and break apart, because the mud cannot compress as much as it can when there isn't standing water. Think about your soybeans behind you in the hopper, that's the mud. Put your hand into them and they move out of the way. Now, imagine pouring concrete into all the gaps between all the beans and then trying to put your hand through them; it wouldn't work. The water is the concrete in this example. It serves the same purpose, it causes the same result.

Zach, in this video, there is a perfect square in the field that wasn't planted. There is a field by my farm with a square like this. Why isn't this spot planted. It is at the 5:33 minute spot. Thanks.

I'm not a farmer . My dad was a farmer he worked on prunes and honey dew melons. My grandpa was a rancher cattle and hogs. So ranching / farming is in my blood. I love the machinery and fixing problems. I'm a mechanic. Good family show lots of information.

The reason why going through water is better is that it cleans the mud off the tires.. when we harvest rice it is usually muddy and we sometimes leave some water on the field that way it’s easier for the combine and tractorss

I always wanted to be a farmer. However I wasn't born into a farm family and as you know it's impossible to get into farm without family. In the past I worked in the farming industry. The farmers I met were the cheepest people I have ever met. I probably not a good farm then.

I imagine its easier to drive through water rather than mud because a layer of clay is likely preventing deep penetration of the water when you see a pool of water above, so your tires hit the clay and keep going, but if you have 6 feet of dirt before theres any clay or anything else to hold the water, then you end up with more mud

From an old a boomer clay soils and crop residue stick to bare rubber and continues to build usally it builds up right in front of the tire.. water acts like a teflon coating helping shed the mud

The water is sitting on a hard pan and not draining. Rip it with a deep sub-soiler and you will get stuck. lol

Nice observation on the mud. I'll be thinking on it. Not the answer but one thing that happens in mud is the treads gum up. Splash the tires with water first and the mud is less likely to stick. Right? Maybe a soil expert can explain the rest.

Water keeps the mud from caking up too bad around the tire treads and it generally isn’t very sticky when there’s water involved. That’s what keeps you from getting stuck as long as you keep the wheels straight and just truck on through it without stopping. Just mud with no water is where problems tend to develop

Mud is, obviously, ground that's saturated with water, making it soft, visible water is a result of harder ground

Driving thru water probably helps wash the tires off and doesn't let the mud stick to them which helps with not getting stuck.

I am a farmer, my grandpa owns a dairy farm and my other grandpa has a small hay business. I'd like to take over that hay business and combine grain as well. You have inspired me with all your cool videos to reach my goal. My operation will be no where near your size, but I love the farm life. You are the best actor out there on youtube, keep making videos and I'm ready to watch the next one.

You asked why you get stuck more easily in muddy spots than in spots with water: i think that in spots where is water on the field the ground is very hard/solid and thats why you also don’t get stuck so easily in those spots.🤔

If it holds water it's more compacted than the wet spot that doesn't hold water! It has a bottom! They way it looks fall tillage isn't going to happen there?

I always figured since you can't compress liquids standing water will keep your machine elevated. You definitely feel safer in the water than driving right next to it. Usually...

I'm 74, had no clue about farming. My wife and I are full time motor home snow birds. Often we travel through the farming heartland. We've seen farmers planting and harvesting and got curious about how farming works. That's why I watch and enjoy learning g about your family and farming. Curious why the wet low field can't be filled with soil from the dry high parts. I understand the soil is thin over clay, it could be costly, time consuming and done by errosion, any other reasons? Loved the install of drain tile. Thanks for your hard work, love your sense of humor.

Driving through water is safer because there is a firmer base underneath it, thats why its standing water. Mud has no firm base or the base is deep enough that you can get totally bogged down because the bottom is deep enough the water cant just sit there.
