I chose farming but I could have been a Ninja!

Harvest is almost here! Some very last minute maintenance on the trucks including cleaning the hopper trailers out. And I finally finished mowing the unwanted brush in our wetland habitat with the Batwing. 4 inch trees were no problem!

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.

    Just a word to the wise. When your checking tire pressures, if you find one with low air pressure, pull the tire and have it repaired. They never fix themselves. They keep leaking.

    Zack, You hate airing tires on you trucks. NAPA and others have a air valve/gauge set up that is very handy. The end clips on the valve stem, then runs to a gauge with an air valve. Hit the trigger and then read the pressure. When you hit the desired pressure unclip the connection and move on. One step! It works on race cars also.

    I forget the brand name but the is a device made for dual tire setups that allows the driver to see the tire pressure at a glance, when pressure is within 5 pounds it shows green in the ball. On the side of it is a tire chuck so you can add air to both tires simultaneously. I've driven a truck so equipped and it made checking tire pressure a dream. Simply trying to make life easier.

    Looks like you need a climbing harness for cleaning bins, hoppers and pits. Forget the "figure skating routine;" hang loose cleaning the upper corners of hoppers, pits etc. If it's too "tight" to use drone to inspect legs, climb up. Have fun rappelling, pretending your inspecting. PLUS...you guys (you know who you are) climbing on top of bins, camera in one hand and not clipped in... 🤦‍♂️

    About the vacuum filter: There is no better feeling than thinking you have to go to town to get some little part and then finding that you already have one.

    I feel compelled to add that Mrs. Cunningham had some great advice on wearing good, clean underwear (way before your time... and mine to an extent)... Thanks for the great content. I am so frustrated from the fruit loops and hippie wanna be's telling people to quit their vested jobs with great medical and retirement benefits and grow twigs in piles of sh!t, don't worry about it, you'll be "just like me." They fail to mention, 95% of their income comes from You Tube. WHICH IS FINE, but don't pretend to be something you're not. It's so great to see realistic content. I have a LONG way to go until I have the shop, and bin system you have, but we're a different animal, both which are very respectable in my opinion. If you are ever in Tiskilwa IL, look me up, I'm not too proud to show someone where I"m at in making the most out of what I've got.
