Farmers are actual real life geniuses. They can feed themselves and fix anything. Serious respect.
First of all, if you need to put together a grain bin, I recommend calling Danny. The man is a genius.
His email is: dannylef2 at yah00 d0t c0m
(I've typed his email address like that so webcrawlers won't detect it and spam him. If you're a farmer you're smart enough to figure that out.)

@Abner Santos - Most farmers feel like they voted for the lesser of two weasels. They know he only pretended to care but as you said Trump was the first to make even that little effort in decades.

I grew up on a farm. Your education starts at a very young age. From the first day you are able to set foot in the field. Generations of knowledge are handed down. Each generation learning to adapt to new technologies. Farmers must know something about every occupation you can think of. I couldn’t begin to list everything you must know. And farmers never quit. My dad is 83 and hasn’t slowed down yet. Hard work and long hours. The first thing you learn !

Genesis 41:48 And he gathered up all the food of the seven years, which were in the land of Egypt, and laid up the food in the cities: the food of the field, which was round about every city, laid he up in the same.

I like how you went into a “country” accent while on the farm. Sounds like a totally different person during the “Hello Fresh” plug. 😂🤣😂

I am guessing that moisture tester works on electric conductivity with water: water being more conductive than solid soy. The more water in the soy the higher the conductivity, less water means less conductivity.

When people say their kid has ADHD, I always remind them that ADHD is one of the greatest gifts they have....ask the farmer how many skills they need to be able to perform at the drop of a hat...it seems like the education system is trying to engineer this out of our kids to be 1 skilled organisms? The answer is in the dirt....

ok lets be serious for a second, farmers aren't geniuses they're doing a job just like a grocer, or a shoemaker, or any other manual labor type job. The geniuses are the ones who engineered those machines and techniques.

59. And with Him are the keys of the Ghaib (all that is hidden), none knows them but He. And He knows whatever there is in (or on) the earth and in the sea; not a leaf falls, but he knows it. There is not a grain in the darkness of the earth nor anything fresh or dry, but is written in a Clear Record. (TQS.6 :59)

Was a bit cringy when you were trying to over complement that farmer, acting like he's Einstein or something... You can tell how awkward he felt.

I don't know why but min-documentaries on farming are some of my favorite content on youtube. Maybe it's my inner economist speaking but I love watching videos about high density farming, vertical farming, and the economics of it all.

One problem is you need a sweep auger to get the rest of the grain out because you usually only have one or two holes in the floor to get the grain out and it gets hot and dusty fast so there is a reason for the permantly sweep auger in there just because of the size.

Nice to hear some good farmer news , I only hear they deplete the soil and wildlife and water sources and pollute the water with fertilizer and pesticide runoff all to provide an unsustainable diet !

Took me back 30+ years... I have done all this only we built a Harvestore which is a silo, not a grain bin. Silos need to be airtight and Harvestore panels are coated in some kind of glass and sealed with a special tar. The panels are lifted like this only the jacks turn the whole thing exactly 1 bolt hole to the right, for some reason. I never rode in a combine, but drove a mounted 2 row picker as well as driving the tractor pulling the 2 row picker when the mounted one broke. We put corn up on the ear in open air bins and fed livestock out of them until right before harvest the next year, when the price was high, then we ran out the ears and shelled it. We put silage into a pit and covered it before that, and fed it out during winter after it had fermented a few months. AHH the sweet smelling steam from the silage when you fed it out... The cows came running to get their fix from the silage pit. The guy I worked for did it the old fashioned way on a small farm. Few people today know the old ways I learned there... I cherish those memories. AH to be 18 again working the farm... I didn't know how much fun I was having...

As an Iowan, I can tell you that farmer's aren't geniuses. The good ones are smart, resourceful, practical, and learn through trial and error of themselves and others. Most importantly, they are good listeners and good judges of what makes sense and what doesn't. They watch what each other is doing and extract the good and discard the impractical. But they aren't geniuses.

Ey mr Smarter Every Day. It's almost right to say that Farmers are the backbone of America. The real truth is, farmers are the backbone of the world. Every nation, every country, every state and every farm. Farmer's are the backbone of humanity! We would not have come this far without them, and they are who keeps us upright. All over the world, not only America.
