    Hi Zach, you are such a fine example of the "work ethic" and the need to get jobs done even if unpleasant. I would tend to procrastinate and that doesn't work on the farm. Thanks for showing the "less than fun chores" as well the super neat chores such as seeding or combining. I have a question on the micro-managing. You mention "down to the acre level" but it seems to me that you are adjusting to even smaller pieces of land -- which is incredible when you think back even a few years ago. Thanks for making the investments that keep food production high at a reasonable cost to the consumer. A great video. Thanks!! - Dean from Edina

      Thanks again Dean!! Always appreciate your thoughts! The acres are managed at a 1-2.5 acre level but usually the programs we use, use an algorithm to blend the acres together based on averages, so there aren't hard breaks or 'lines' between the acres for certain applications. Did I make that clear as mud? Maybe it wasn't even what you were asking?!

    Watching this reminds me that I'm really happy the farmer I occasionally work for uses augers instead of pits. I'm positive the job would be given to me if it had to be done.

      *I agree with you 100%.*
      *It's a short term pinch for a long term fix.* *We need to protect our present and future farmers and ranchers. I think President Trump is trying to do just that.*

        Zach I noticed windows in the upper top of your shop building, do you have a office in the upstairs of the corner of your shop ?

              If anyone calls you out on Welfare, they are absolutely insane. You’re one of the hardest working people on this planet. You’re a roll model to me and many others. You deserve any bit of money/payment you receive. You work much harder than 90% of Americans.

              There are very FEW people who will get up and go to work and do the things you do. You’re one comment I always pick up on (and that you say often) is “I don’t like doing it but it’s just something we got to do”. Most people just won’t do something they don’t want to. Period.

                  Could you not build some sort of roof, port or covering over the pits. So the trucks could just drive under.

                      Can you do more videos on racing? Are those little cars set up like an asphalt Bandolero where its chain driven and you change how many teeth the gear has on the motor and drive axle?

                          Why not build small pole building to keep the pits covered? This would also you load demi's in the rain/snow. 🤷🏼‍♂️

                                  Not that I'm recommending it but many farmers spray round up on their crops to force the field to dry up uniformly so it can be harvested when they are ready.

Is there a drainage in the hopper if water would get inside it if the combine would be outside when it is raining or do you just let the water stay there until it's time for the next harvest and let the water get out with the grain? Great vids Zach keep up the good work!

                                                            Zach, I don't understand how the trade war will ultimately benefit farmers. The only thing I see them negotiating is intellectual property theft and technology theft. Neither of these issues affect farmers. Your bearing the brunt and not getting any benefit.

The Chinese government is directly retaliating against American farmers (especially soy farmers), because they know it's trumps base and his loony unguided "policy" is useless to try and deal with. They have the money and the resources to wait trump out. they're going to keep attacking American farmers. If trump would stop circumventing congress and allow them to formalize a better trade deal all the craziness could stop.

Because of the tariffs for the first time in 30 years the Chinese government has had to use iou's. They have been buying soy beans and pork like crazy in the last couple of weeks. The president is fighting a fight that should have been fought 30 years ago. Remember China needs us but we don't need them at all.

I mean, I was born in 1982 and depending on who you ask I am either the very youngest of Gen X or the oldest of the millennial's. Yet I don't feel I fit in with either one. Anyways, Where do you fall in the millennial generation??
