I Bought My First Tractor

I bought MY first tractor! We upgraded to a John Deere 6175R and also got a new Loftness snow blower for it, along with a new HLA 4500 snow pusher from Good Works Tractors. Dad also traded for a newer, larger John Deere skid loader, a 332G model. FBN Todd also helped me load some data (dayta?) and Anna did some attack training.

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.

    What was the story on the traction control locking up in reverse. I am new to your channel, and am watching some earlier videos, wondered what the problem might have been. You probably don’t have time to delve into those things but I was thinking what it might be, a speed sensor, maybe a connection, the electronics are a pain.

    I've watcherd many of your videos. I've been curious about one thing for quite some time now: Including remted, leased and owned land, how many acres did you farm in the 2019-2020 season? How many acres in corn? In soybeans? In other crops? Please answer this question. If nothing else, the answer will explain why you are so darned busy!

    Have fun with repairs and fighting Deere for the right to repair your equipment, they have been known to lock out new official parts you install so to have a special technician with a company provided laptop to come out and have to reset your equipment and such other sadly people who buy Deere won't know in advance of the hell they are getting into and the borderline illegal and sometimes illegal practices of John Deere.

ALL the trucks (I'm a professional truck driver for a living) I've driven that have that system are far more cumbersome for our mechanics to keep on the road. I've had far more down time with the DEF trucks, than with the older trucks! If given a preference, I'd rather drive the oldest truck in the fleet, than operate one of them new DEF engines!

    In farming, owning your land is like owning a house. Owning equipment is like owning furniture. When you buy more land your seeded acres and income goes up. When you buy better equipment it gets easier to farm what you have. And it depreciates. I'm not sure why Zack would be buying a new tractor, skid steer, snow blower and grader bucket. Were these essential items to the farm ? I think that money would have been better spent on buying land. Zack only owns 1 quarter of land. If you get into a bind with a lack of machinery, you can always rent something. Renting land is way harder than renting equipment. I think Zac's family farms 2200 acres, which is about 15 quarters. Zac owns 1 and rents 4 or 5. I assume his dad owns most of the rest. What needs to happen is Zac needs to increase his land ownership, either by buying out his dad's land or by finding other land to buy. Because that increases Zac's income. As it is right now, Zac is spending his money on grain storage and equipment which doesn't increase his land ownership. I've seen this happen before. The retiring father wants new equipment because it is nice to operate and it doesn't break down. But it isn't in the son's best interest to spend his money on new equipment. The son should be spending his money on land, because land ownership makes the farm. Dad wants to put profit into equipment, which makes it harder (more expensive) for the son to buy out and diverts capital from land purchases. The son needs to buy the land because that increases his income. Zac is 35 years old. Lets say he needs to own at least 6 quarters of land by the time he is 50 years old to be a viable farmer. That means he needs to buy a new quarter of land every 3 years. That means every three years he needs to save enough money to make the down payment on another quarter of land and have enough capital to be able to afford to farm it. We are living in a time of historically low interest rates. Farmers carry a lot of debt and are very sensitive to interest rate increases.

Abby the Dobie, loves watching me work. She finds a nice shaded area, lays down and then proceeds to watch me break my back. Our little ranch is in TN, about 80 miles east of Nashville. Ana the dog looks to be quite similar to Abby.
