Tell Me Otherwise-Crusted over Grain Bins

We have a lot of grain to haul over the next 6 weeks so the trucks and hoppers need maintenance. Tell me otherwise-Crusted over Grain Bins and spoilage, why it happens and how we stay on top of it.

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.

    I'm about 6 months late seeing this video Zach......but I'd like to throw in my 2 cents. I really enjoy all your vids.....they've been a pleasant surprise & a little addicting. I'm all for supporting the various causes.....including shopping at home whenever possible. Which brings me to my comment. Today's events included hanging the flags and using magnets....which were bought from Amazon & they weren't strong enough to do the job. Amazon doesn't need your money Zach.....they have more money than they know what to do with already. Surely you can find a local hardware store or farm supply store that has magnets up to the task. Shop the little guys. Thanks for listening...keep up the good work.

    Your friend for seating beads back onto rims is a 5 gallon "CHEETAH" air can that utilizes a 3" ball valve to seat the tires. I used to be a commercial tire repair guy for about six years.

    For filling duels on semi trucks, I cannot recommend getting a set of crossfire's enough. Fills both tires at the same time, equalizes pressure and has a blow off valve in case a tire pops. Look them up on amazon, around 65$ per set of duels. Also, I personally use a clip lock on air chuck and a ball valve on a hose, and when the crossfire lines up, close the ball and then go pop the chuck off. That way my face is not two inches from the tire when it goes bang.

    Getting stronger magnets might not make a difference. The strength of the magnet also depends on the thickness of the material you are attaching to. If it’s too thin like most cladding it will never stick very well

    Mr Zach, 2 things I would like to mention. Hopefully you read this. 1st is the plug on your electiric Cord from your truck to trailer. Here in Northern Wisconsin, much like where you live, we deal with corrosion on all electrical connections due to the chemical they use on our roads in the winter time. An old trick I was taught was dunk the whole end into diesel fuel. It helps clean them up and also helps prevent corrosion. Item 2, and you probably already know this, but the American flag is to be displayed higher than other flags. It's the most important flag of our country and it shows proper respect P.S. enjoy your videos.

    The American flag looks great vertical, but not so much the Farmers First flag. Like you said, not only is the Union on the wrong side, but it makes it awkward reading it. Maybe hang them both horizontal, with the USA flag on top and Farmers First flag on the bottom?

    ,,, Thank you for your respectful and reverent display of our Red, White and Blue. I'm not wild over the adulteration of the US flag with the farmers 1st flag but I can tolerate it. I do not tolerate the Gray ones with one "colored" stripe,,, that is simply an abomination and adulteration of our national symbol. :( I realize that not all courts have respected the flag protection act of 1969, but if you want to lump yourself in with those who want to disrespect the flag in any way possible such as defecating on/or any other disgusting thing you can think of then you're in that group.
