      Micro climate impacts tree growth.

      National labs is doing. SoIL analysis. Many organisms they are finding that are new.

      Are seeing plant stock take in 40% less oxen e on and more co2. A change in global warming.

      Climate change - warmer climate moving north into Canada improving harvest cycle. Curious about your area yield do to climate. We have 4 salmon hatteries also that engineer five species of salmon we co manage with the state of WA. Habitat is is important for trees and salmon.

                      Small Dairy Farmer 33 years old from Ohio. Glad you spotlighted dairy farms in your podcast. You are right a main issue is mega dairies hiring lower cost immigrant workers and flooding the market with to much milk which is knocking out a lot of good small family dairy farms. America does not have to have immigrant workers to do jobs in America. Pay an American a fair wage and they will work. The price of milk hasn't went up for many years. Look in the grocery store the price of water compared to the price of milk. There is way more value in milk than water but price doesn't reflect that. On sidenote I'm not a fan of potatoes either. Me and my boy love watching your videos keep them coming.

                        I'm from Brazil, I received a video on WhatsApp from the USA, as machines that were in the field and I spent the night in the fields and no video was shown as machines that were selected overnight with the industrial isolated.
                          Why do you do this so as not to break like cold parts and freeze machine fluids?

                            Love watching your videos. As a young teen I worked on my uncle's farm in Wisc. I'm 70 Now. What a change. Open cabs no computers. Just fun to see the farming changes.

                              it's amazing when you are so used to small the small 100 hp tractors, and 50-75 acres per day sounds like a ton, but for you it's nothing.

                                      It would be interesting to hear about your tillage strategy and to give people an idea of how many passes you make total till/plant/spray/combine, etc.

                                      I vaguely remember being on my grandpa’s farm as a kid and I remember stalk chopping, rip, disk/harrow but he also did some no till stuff and seamed to have good luck with it

                                            Agreed, the New Holland TR series worked well, and John Deere one could work well too.

                                          You should do a video where you’re only aloud to talk every 3 minutes and when you talk it has to be something stupid.

                                                      I did some custom work for a neighbor several yrs ago, after his combine caught fire and was shelling corn on new yrs eve, with it snowing and sleeting. About every 100 yards, I would have to stop and clean the sieves off. The only time in my life, that I was kind of glad for harvest to be over, as harvest time and running the combine is my favorite time of yr. I enjoy planting, but Im also fine with someone else doing it, but I almost always ran the combine. We got a winter advisory for tomorrow here in Indiana, and there is still a lot of corn out, and there is still a few soybeans out, but for the most part they are done. Shelling down corn, along with snow isnt something I would wish on my worst enemy, 1 or the other is bad enough.

                                                          The problem here in Northern Iowa is shortage of propane. Elevators are out and full of wet corn. Farmers with dryers are at a standstill. A lot of corn is still in the fields and was planted late and is wet. I'm waiting for our local to start taking corn, they been waiting 10 days to get propane and are completely out.

                                                            Zach, A small tip that we found to help pick up/bring in down corn and reduce head plugging is to put your gathering chains in sync. I see yours are currently offset. I don't think there is an actual "correct"way to have them. But after putting ours in sync we had no more plugs between the snouts. #iowa2019harvestsuckstoo

I have been driving an Hour in four directions and 70 percent of fields NOT harvested, corn and bean. (3 inches of snow on ground, consistent under freezing temps.) WHY, crops still in the fields,,,,,, Because of a LOT of RAIN,,,!!! and because the smaller farmers NO longer have their own harvesters, they pay the BIG farms to come and do it. Soooo they are LAST on the list AFTER the Big Farmer does his. This is a BIG MISTAKE. Roller Coaster Weather WILL continue and get WORSE,,,, across the U.S .A and Everyone needs to get ready,,,!!!!!!!!!!!!
