    Wasteful gratuitous tillage for absolutely no reason.

      I can't imagine what your gas and electric bill is every month. Have you considered VFD's for motor controls to cut down on initial amp draw?

        corn whiskey belongs in a bottle.. not in our fuel supply. It destroys everyone elses machines so these guys can get rich.

                  I have always wondered when they harvest corn, at night, how many wild animals they run into out in the field! Bears/trash pandas/fox/wolf/deer?

                    Oh the joys of farming. I farmed with my family for 27 years of my life. Just north of you up here in Manitoba. Back in '97 it was so wet the grain carts couldn't even get in the fields. I drove the combine up on the side of the ditch and was dumping in a truck that was parked on the side of a road. When I backed up I mistakenly backed the rear tire into a culvert and ripped off the entire axle. Same deal. Crippled in a ditch full with 4 ft of water. What I've learned is that if you can survive grain farming you can survive any other occupation with ease.

                      You guys are amazing! There is not ONE skill set here. You need to be able to do multiple tasks on a farm, and the more you call for help the less $$ you make!

                          Why don't you just put the corn in the silos instead of bagging it . Have you heard of grain elevators that you can put the corn in . People do work there and they know what to do with the corn

                                    This statement is really a rather oversimplified and somewhat incorrect way of stating the real issue. Both producers and consumers are dependant on market prices. It is the guys in between who all want their cut. Right now there may well be a change in what consumers demand, but sometimes such changes are initiated by those involved in the food business, whom in turn have a say in what farmers should be growing. That is the kind of control/power at their fingertips. So, as a grower, their frustrations are misdirected if they feel the need to react to consumers complaints. One either acknowledges their grievances and ensure that their points are responded to, by way of dismissing that which is factually incorrect and explaining why various choices are made, or one can dismiss the complaints outright, since the consumers grief is related to the marketing and pricing of product, which invariably are issues outside of the producer's control..A big part of the problem lies in the huge disconnect between producer and consumer, where we have gone from an agrarian economy society, to what we have today where a large service sector exists and there is even a noticeable chasm between the producer and consumer in an 'us and them' kind of way. Now, I don't know where and how it started, but you see, your line up there isn't helping matters. There are no complaining consumers here, so what is your actual issue?

                                    Hire me on, I want to run some farming equipment. I don't sleep much so I should be ok with the long days and hours.

                                      stick jr. I ran a 2,500 farm for my boss man , we went to work at 7am to 7;30 pm . When we were planting the crops and 7; am to 7;30 pm when we were harvesting the crops. But after we got the crops planted we went to work at 7am to 6pm . we took an hour off for lunch. I say that if you got to work from morning till late late you got more land than you need. Your hands are going to be quiting you pretty often. it's not 30s any more. Then the boss said if a man dies , Hire another one. if the Mule dies will Buy another one. with the technology we have today, Especially how big and better. You can plant and harvest 20 times faster than then. You see I came up when there wasn't nothing but Mules . TRY farming with just mules and see how much you can get done in a sunup to sundown day. Then you will surely appreciate the technology that we have today. Fast and Big. From a half a row to a 90 foot wide header on a combine. To a cotton picker that picks the cotton and round bale it and rap it with plastic and puts it on the ground ready to be picked up and carried to gin for ginning .

                                    I can’t even count the times something like that has happened. The only thing you can do is grab the jacks, some wrenches, and a couple of spot lights and go to it. The fact that no one was injured is the important part. There are lots full of combines.

                                            Basic problem is the axle may look broken ! but a fatigue in bolts "U" bolts what ever is maybe the issue. Being from the UK can also say following your farm and subscribed, love what you's guy's do and are up against along the way. But something is always going to become against your side, Damage and cost is stupid considering the bolts alone only cost coppers $$$, being a commercial mechanic over they years on Trucks and busses, maybe it best to keep older equip on what we called a TRIA annual, every three years strip the beast down and other machinery as much as you can and get rid of these unfortunate happenings that would cost you a days work and expenses from them John Deere guy's. Air bags and springs bolts and nuts were exchanged and replaced as ness to keep old and loved machinery going. PS: love all the vids and the latest with Welker was also a great vid from both sides, watched them both and wish you all the very best with future harvests. Between you and Welker are the only Farmers in op I actually watch. Nice job guy's

                                                          I remember back in the day, we ran 7720. In three different instances managed to break each of the final drives. Than one evening our hired man was pulling out of a field cranked the wheel sharp and dropped the rear axle off a 5 foot culvert snapping it in two in the middle of the road. That was a long night getting that out of the road.

                                                            How good do the two boards work for closing the end of the bag? I was thinking of using one board and just rolling it up vs what we do now (grab end of bag and twist) but that looks even better. Might have to steal that idea :) ALSO, do you do the same thing on the other end of the bag or just twist and tuck the start end? I have been considering doing the board(s) on the start end as well but was concerned about it holding together. EDIT - Found the unloading video, yes you guys do use boards for the start. Thats a very good setup, i'm going to start doing that for sure now! :)

I think everyone who eats should watch your channel and try to understand the troubles you and your family goes through on a daily basis to feed this country. God bless y’all and thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I work for a John Deere Dealer :p

I don't know how common a problem it is but in Ohio there are a bunch of these machines around that's never happened to single one. Deere has been know for it's longevity for a long time and that still holds true today. Seen way more problems with red because around me no one runs really anything else.
