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.

    From a safety standpoint all moving pulleys and belts that are not over seven feet off the ground must have a guard over the pully and belt, think about one of you children or a worker for that matter was to get their hand or foot onto a moving pulley unbelievable disaster...when I see where a safety issue comes into play I just can't help myself not to point it out...

    Zack, about your request for ideas to install a flag pole on your tower. I can think of two possible ways to raise the flag. 1st) There are a number of flag pole companies who make kits (Alum or Fiberglass). Decide on the size of the flag you will want to have. The flag size drives the pole needs. The pole companies have all of the information you will need. 2nd) look for light poles that hav been taken down do to construction of they are no longer needed. Try a few sights to get a good deal. Most of the light poles are based mounted. You could extend a pipe below the walking grate and attach it a few feet below the grate to counteract the moment arm from the flag. Also thing about 3 guide wires to reinforce the pole. You also may want to look into adding an antenna to the top of the pole to improve your communication ability around the farm.

    You buy Corn and Soybean seed ..... Why cant you use the corn and soybean you harvest as seed

  9. Paul


    پیش 2 ماه

    Regarding the fire extinguishers: Even if you had left a gap between the seed pallets for access to that fire extinguisher or moved them so that it is accessible next to them, assuming they spontaneously combust how would anybody get to the fire extinguisher anyway? So many people place their fire extinguishers far too close to danger areas, and that is a huge mistake. With all the fire extinguishers all over that shop, I think you are well covered. Maybe even overkill.

    do farmers ph their fields throughout the year or just once a yr? do you adjust the ph levels? a suggestion why don't farmers and the gov get together with landfills and make compost dirt for farmers. take some old silos and mod them to work with food/dirt kinda as a big blender. the methane gas produced could be used to power it. why don't they make grain silos with solar panels and you could get some of those 400 w wind turbines and put them on the top of them. could be a great way to save tons of money and get that fed/state green energy tax credits.

    when lighting flags you need 3 light sources set lower in a triangle set out around the base of your flag pole. you also need to think about the focal length of the lights optic, so the light goes on the flag rather than send beams up into the sky. Also think about the lights colour temperature. Say your lights are LED, with a three colour white light you can mix the right temperature which will make the flag really pop. hope this helps

    Zach. An idea for your flag on your grain leg... Put a solar flag spot light. Find them at like say Menards or any where by you that sells lawn and garden stuff or flags and or poles. We used an old flag pole cut it to length and u-botled it to a corner of the plat form. Angle iron is used for our railings, so it worked out great. And the light we made a holder as well. Work and looks amazing. People in the county talk about it offten. Also a another neighbor puts up a star that lights up. Usually around Christmas but has a tendency of leaving it up for a while. it's about 6ft by 6ft light up star. Looks awesome too!
