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.

Since you are a pilot I am wondering what you think of the planes that require a computer to stay in the air like the new planes the USA and other nations are buying now. I really wonder about them after learning about that ship the USA had that was buzzed by a Russian plane that has a device that turned all the computers and electrical things off causing the ship to be drifting for four hours before they managed to get it to the point of being able to just make it back to port. You know a plane can not just drift around with no engines nothing working and you can't get out of the seat and move around and fix the problems. I think if a plane needs a computer to stay in the air it is sure not a good idea to have it as a war time plane. What are you thoughts Greg Milner

I am getting the impression that a farmer has most of the skills that a millwright has . Welding electrical gas + chemicals and knowing how to make all those very large machines work and repair them requires a good bit of skill. I just wonder how much less the farmer will be able to do in regards to keeping the machines going with the huge amount of computer stuff involved. I think maybe the next generation of farmers will grow up knowing much more about computers but still when it comes to fixing the computer the idea of having an I.T. guy go to farmers just to fix the computers so the farmer can keep working does not sound like a good thing.

How much of the corn you grow ends up being turned into fuel ? I have to wonder if turning farm land into a place to grow fuel is right thing to do . Sure for the farmer if the profit is there the farmer will grow corn for ethanol but how much can the worlds land be turned into growing crops for ethanol when we have a world pop. that keeps on growing. I think two things are wrecking our farms as places to grow food. One ethanol . Two much more so what people wrongfully call land development . The small village I grew up in outside of Toronto Canada was mostly farm land but then the city folks came mostly high paid rich people who built what I would call mini mansion and some actual mansions. One farm that was small only 125 acres sold for $ 98 million dollars to a so called developer who quickly turned the place into a sea of huge big houses . The small village is no more. The feed mill is gone and in it's place is a big building called the feed mill mall. A place that seems to be mostly offices and a few stores on the bottom . Point is that what farmer would not sell the land for so much money he and his family likely will never have to work again . How much of that is going on where you are ?

When I ran the planter at first I had problems accidentally turning the vacuum fans off. Finally I put my right hand fan on #4 and #1 ran my left hand fan. Also I put Velcro on #1. The Velcro stopped the SAFTEY COVER from opening and my finger accidentally touching it and turning that fan off We swapped our press wheels to the solid steel. It solved the problems of the rubber one not coming apart so we could put the bearings in.

Do you use all new machinery? I’m referring to combines, and tractors. I’m sure the cultivators , chizzel plows are older but with new sweeps. The planter is a 40 ft I think. It looks like the one I planted with. Does row 10 and 22 still give problems not feeding the seed every now and then.

Why don't you till the field which was to wet already? Like plow it, than the wet underground comes up and can dry too. When dried seed a catch crop which will freeze to death. Then in winter time till it after some frost when the frost just got out of the ground so he machines can handle it but you don't leave that much of a compaction. This will leave a nice seedbed in the spring. We use this technique some time but don't know it this will work out in your circumstances.

We can't pull tillage equipment through wet soils, it's way too sticky. Our ground also freezes about 5 feet deep and when it thaws it's too sticky to even walk on for about a month

HI millennial great vids that last field rather than tile drains try subsoiling looks like a classic case of compaction was maize crop harvested in wet? if landlord pays for drains he may want no probably will want more rent!!! but if you can run a subsoiler through while the top is dry it maybe a good alternative, try to go at either45 or 90 degrees to the way the last crop was drilled you ma want to level out the ruts first!!!!!

Why on the blower to the bins, don't you put a air pressure transducer constantly monitoring the air pressure in the tube. Then on a blow out, I would expect the pressure to change substantially. This could be used to shut the dryer off and sound an alarm. Much better than blowing all of the corn on the ground. But then again, my goal is to overlay complicate things.... :)
