Iowa Farm Damage

The Iowa Farm Damage is pretty unbelievable. It's unlike anything I've ever seen in my lifetime. Thank you to the Iowa farmers who took time out of there days to show me around. Early on in the trip I made a quick stop at an equipment auction and for a quick minute I thought I bought my first combine.

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.

    Yes, I like you saying THUNDUrurur. I also like when you explain what you are doing as many things have changed from what they had in the 80's when I drove a Case tractor in the bottom near the river bed. Land was really sandy soil. Your soil is rich and black which is great looking soil. Thanks for your help and keep up the great work beinging a farmer.

    After watching this video all i can say is this. May the Almighty protect all those people , onwers and volunteers that help others stand up on their feet again , May God bless them all with peaceful harvest next time ! Although this was sad to watch if you think about it from another point of view it seems that farmers got some decent support from their community !

    everyone loves to say "insurance will cover everything and no one will be out anything" in order for insurance companies to make profit they have to take in more than they pay out. All this means is the rates will go up or coverage will go down. The insurance company always wins. Its never a good thing when you have to make a claim

    MILF: Do not belive the self-serving Leftist scumbags who claim this storm is caused by climate change. Wrong! These storms have occurred in the Midwest for as long as Europeans have farmed here. The term "Derecho" was first coined to describe the storm that hit Iowa on 31 July 1877. This type of destructive wind storm has occurred every decade or two ever since.

    I’m on the coast in South Carolina. Been thru storms like that many times and it’s damn sure no fun. Praying for all the ppl affected. Breaks my heart to see all those ruined crops. I’ve been there many times w a beautiful crop blown flat down or stripped from hail. It’s been so wet down here this year and 50% of all the farmland is just growing weeds. One my best buddies works for crop insurance co and said he has never seen so many pp claims as he has this year, and he’s been in it over 20 years. We lost most of our produce crops this year, didn’t get any soybeans planted. Did plant 150 acres of corn and a 120 ac of milo. Had 500 acres burnt down for soybeans, but couldn’t ever get in the field. Corn looks pretty good here, but soybeans crop looks like crap. Why I don’t know, but a lot of farmers planted right on till mid august and beans aren’t 6” tall and yellow. Honestly it’s been pure hell past 3-4 years. As much as I love farming, born and raised on farm, it’s honestly got to where there is zero joy in it anymore, and that’s sad af. I use to be so pumped all year long ready for each stage of the year, now it’s mostly dread.

    sick of the iowa senators not voting for the people i am so i made my mind up and now i need your help please fill in the oval box and write in Kent Keller for Iowa senator he was a navy veteran that served on the U.S.S. IOWA BB-61 for some yrs while active duty and a general eng. contractor that even donated to the hospital in council bluffs iowa while doing a project there almost 200,000.00 dollars i bet joni or greenfield did not do any of this and he grew up on the small farm and was a farmer for his grandparents as well running hogs and cattle and wheat and soybeans and milo for crops i bet joni did not cut over 1000 pigs herself i bet all small companies greenfield will destroy them since she push them out for big box stores and that kill iowa the nation was built on small companies backs so lets keep iowa this way and make the good old Iowa a greater place to live with stronger future and bring other small companies back here. i ask joni for help when i was a victim of identity she said sorry can not help you... the entire state said the same thing when you buy land an a house as a project to fix good old grandpa house up from renter destroying it and then become a victim of major corruption and vandalized non stop and identity theft, and state of kansas refuse to do anything what is a man to do for almost 19 yrs of corruption and theft from title of home stolen and funds from district attorney officer i hired as lawyer on land and house deal, and local cops and sheriff in cult group and judge step son was a local drug dealer and he drunk on bench and on the take of drug sales, and they want me to look up to this corruption people I SAY HELL NO i fought for this county no freaking way i went to legal aid in iowa and she was so bad she did not even know what a federal irs loss form was so they put every thing as income what a nightmare its been but i still help some of the veteran disable vets out now and then when i can i have my limits as well. i did get hurt while deployed but i am not holding against any iowa people since they was not from here in this great state i have great neighbors and farms and land owners and towns people here we all get a long but we do need over site in all law enforcement i can see that in this nation not police looking over police a complete different division of over site more bios that reviews all facts. and regulations, and this goes all the way from local police to the attorney general office. i am sorry i have to put it in hard words but crime was done they need to do the time... to pay for there crimes.. I do miss the tractor and freedom of going around and around in the field and the smell of fresh turned dirt in the field as all farmers do. and building small structures i done storm sewers boxes for yrs and also retro fit homes and even commercial property retro fits so as a contractor i done tons of work from federal to highway to commercial and homes and deal with people one on one and no issue and i enjoy meeting people and seeing how they do things and what they might need to help them make there lives better , i would make sure they get the help they need so write kent keller in for iowa state senator and fill in oval office i dont have funding like the other ladies since i not on the party ticket but they woke me up and i have to help this great nation out of a jam again i will do so....

Hats off to you, I use a shovel and a small knife for most of my "farming" a 1200 square foot plot (don't laugh, yes square feet not acres! ).

    Here in WC Iowa, we've only had 3.5" of rain since the ground has thawed back in the spring. Crops have been doing well until this last month. They are probably surviving off of the over abundance of rain we had last year. Currently the crops are drying up, corn in the last 5 days are burn drying. Chopped some silage, yields are 40 to 100bu. off of normal.
