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 would like to see a plastic flap hang down over your switches. These switches are exposed to the elements and there is no reason for that. Put in a plastic flap on the top of the control outside panel. I have noticed that you have put protective covers over the exposed belt drives. I have seen the legs and arm severed by exposed belts and augers . I know you don't like what I say. But I will say it. The word is worn not wor.

    Zach, get a safety harness and a tie off lanyard for when you need to climb a) up the bin ladders and b) need to crawl around in the bin on top of the grain stored. As kids we used to play in the bins in the stored barley / wheat, never realizing the danger present. Until one of my brothers almost got swallowed in the grain. Harnesses and lanyards are a BIG issue in the oilpatch and I've learned that they're cheap compared to a lost life.

    Why don't you just install a webcam in each grain bin plus a strong LED which you can turn on by flipping a switch? And just buy some USB webcams plus a USB over Fiber adapter, much better than running ethernet cables, since you just need a USB hub and an old laptop at the bottom - and they don't crash/freeze, etc like those "cheap" webcams tend to do. And then just run "sighthound video" which lets you do all kinds of stuff with them :)

    Hi Zach. I understand You are dealing with covid-19. Homeschooling and all. Here in Denmark we are loosening up a bit and the schools are opening a little. Most of seeding is done exept of course for corn and the beans that we grow in order NOT to import soybeans. Sorry. But small grain, sugarbeets are all seeded. After a very wet Fall and winter it is now quite dry and still rather cold. We need some rain and warmth. Good luck for the season. Niels

    What do you think about U.S. Congressman Thomas Massie calling for complete collapse of our food supply by mid May 2020? This is because beef prices are going up at the grocery stores, but the prices ranchers are receiving for cattle is going down while processing plants are being closed. Same for dairy. He implies that crops are not being planted in the U.S.? Checkout the interviews linked on his twitter page.

    • Sam Voelkel

      Sam Voelkel

      Grain bins are dangerous in that some grains are slippery enough, that if a man steps into the bin and tries to walk on the grain, he may get swallowed up by the grain and drown. Once he starts getting swallowed by the grain, it is very difficult to get out, and he will suffocate under the grain. There is also a danger that as a bin is emptied from the bottom that a cavity will form within the bin. When a man steps into the grain, the cavity collapses and the man gets swallowed up by the grain, and again drowns.

    • Travis Luther

      پیش 9 ماه

      I can share some of the general knowledge, a grain farmer may need to correct me. In general grain bins can be dangerous when unloading for several reasons. I'll list a couple that come to mind. First, flowing grain is a bit like quick sand and you can be pulled under and buried. In the context of this video though, if the grain gets wet (it could start out the way, but also could be from a leak in the bin) it can crust over. When you start to unload, a false ceiling can form when the crusty moldy grain is rigid enough to support itself. If you get in and stand or crawl on top of this, the crust can break and you will fall. This could bury you in the grain etc. People do live through both of these kinds of farm accidents, but generally to do so you need someone around, aware of where you went, and quick to act. It is smart to always check a bin before you start unloading. Seasons are wrong and you may not remember how full a bin was last fall. If you know where the grain level started you know where it shouldn't be when you look inside after the truck is full. I presume Zack's warning is that the grain is crusting over a lot. There are likely other concerns from the grain crusting over, I just know that one can be life threatening.

      I was wondering the same, i,m thinking of 2 possibly, maybe drowning and sinking into the corn accidentally or maybe worse of farmer's committing suicide being pushed over the edge of financial stress.
