Harvesting Corn

  • Published: 03 November 2019
  • We're back to harvesting corn. Things aren't going great... The amount of downed corn we have is a nightmare. It's still muddy with SNOW and RAIN on the way.

    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 will say this. After watching this channel, and the other farming channels, being a farmer is way more complicated than I ever thought. It seems hard, expensive, trouble when you don't need it, dangerous a lot of the time, a high stress. Thank all you Farmers for doing this. I definitely don't take this for granted anymore. And all you all be safe no matter what part of the world you're in!

      @stludachris And if you are a farmer with irrigation systems in Texas you need to have studied engineering and geology...plus being an agronomist with degrees in science helps.

      I think its media's fault for portraying farmers that way. Farming takes a lot some even take up meteorology to read weather better.

                          We run narrow rows now because of this. Seems to help hold the stalks up. Also headers with short snouts seem to work better. Some years have been so bad though, we have to walk beside with a rake.

                                              We added a wheel, similar to what bean/milo headers have, to combat the fallen corn clogging up the row units.

                                                We just got done with corn ourselves here in Texas. I’m ssooooo glad it wasn’t beans/milo. I do NOT miss that dang itch!!!

                                                Oh, and I’m probably the only one, but we call them “grease balls”. Lol

                                                Dang! I don’t think I’ve ever cut corn that wet. Our elevator won’t take anything over 18.

                                                        Camera is a brilliant idea. My son's best description without a camera is, "Back up until you hear something expensive."
                                                        Too often the truth.
                                                        They are zerks.
                                                        In "the old country" (Iowa), they're headlands.
                                                        In my new home (wet, snowy, down corn MN) they're end rows.
                                                        Keep plugging away and look down the road for the LP truck. Hope he comes today.
