Farmers are actual real life geniuses. They can feed themselves and fix anything. Serious respect.
First of all, if you need to put together a grain bin, I recommend calling Danny. The man is a genius.

(I've typed his email address like that so webcrawlers won't detect it and spam him. If you're a farmer you're smart enough to figure that out.)

@Abner Santos - Most farmers feel like they voted for the lesser of two weasels. They know he only pretended to care but as you said Trump was the first to make even that little effort in decades.

Took me back 30+ years... I have done all this only we built a Harvestore which is a silo, not a grain bin. Silos need to be airtight and Harvestore panels are coated in some kind of glass and sealed with a special tar. The panels are lifted like this only the jacks turn the whole thing exactly 1 bolt hole to the right, for some reason. I never rode in a combine, but drove a mounted 2 row picker as well as driving the tractor pulling the 2 row picker when the mounted one broke. We put corn up on the ear in open air bins and fed livestock out of them until right before harvest the next year, when the price was high, then we ran out the ears and shelled it. We put silage into a pit and covered it before that, and fed it out during winter after it had fermented a few months. AHH the sweet smelling steam from the silage when you fed it out... The cows came running to get their fix from the silage pit. The guy I worked for did it the old fashioned way on a small farm. Few people today know the old ways I learned there... I cherish those memories. AH to be 18 again working the farm... I didn't know how much fun I was having...

I would love to see more videos like this and how it pertains to our food sources! You made something that many of us find unremarkable into something that my friends and I are all talking about. How fascinating!

As an Iowan, I can tell you that farmer's aren't geniuses. The good ones are smart, resourceful, practical, and learn through trial and error of themselves and others. Most importantly, they are good listeners and good judges of what makes sense and what doesn't. They watch what each other is doing and extract the good and discard the impractical. But they aren't geniuses.

I'm sorry that the president put massive taxes on your friend's beans and then pilfered a large amount of your tax money to cover his mistake.

Ey mr Smarter Every Day. It's almost right to say that Farmers are the backbone of America. The real truth is, farmers are the backbone of the world. Every nation, every country, every state and every farm. Farmer's are the backbone of humanity! We would not have come this far without them, and they are who keeps us upright. All over the world, not only America.
Wood 'n' Stuff w/ Steve French
"Farmers are geniuses" is a bit hyperbolic, don't you think? Almost every profession uses equipment designed and built by someone other than the user. It's like saying "computer users are geniuses" because they use extremely complex, extremely difficult to design and create tools. Anyway, it was an interesting video.

Even as our population continues to rapidly increase we seemingly have such a high supply of food in the US that we hand it out for nearly every humanitarian project. Our advances seem to even outstrip our growth.
Vlad Dracoson
Sadly, things are going to be worse for farmers and quite soon. Our entire lives depend on their success, and troubles with crops loom closely on the horizon. Take care of your farmers and help out by starting a garden. Soon we shall all need to help.

Destin's a treasure. His humility reminds me of Steve Irwin, and it makes "Smarter Every Day" very relatable and watchable.

Last bin I built a few years ago, we used manual cable jacks. Building a bin is one of the hardest jobs there is. These guys are hard as nails.

If anyone thinks their life sucks, go help an old farmer out by shovelling some grain from his bin that doesnt have a fancy auger or bin sweep in it. lol. #1 reason i moved off the farm and to the city was to not shovel grain anymore lol

Farmers are whiny crybabies. There's too much rain, there's too little rain, there's no market for my crops yada yada yada. Then the Fed's bail them out with our tax dollars. They should sell their land and try to make a living like the rest of us. Small/family farms are not a 21st century business model. Just cause your pappy and his pappy worked the land doesn't give you the right to suck off out tax dollars to keep you afloat.

As a farmer myself I wanted to thank you for this video. A lot of people never see the work that goes into getting food to the table. A lot of people never see the process of the everyday life. I feel you showcased this very, very well. Amazing channel. I've been following for years. RESPECT!

Permaculture farming is better. This type of intensive farming destroys the soil. Have to keep adding chemicals to the soil so you can keep growing.

The music for the montage was a nice choice. Well done! What is the name of it?

Farmers are the base of modern society, without them we couldn't have food or grains that we humans eat but also serves as food for cows, and other animals we eat. If there's no food a human can't live and can't produce, can't buy things and use money to get economy running. Farmers are the true mvp!

he thinks that combining is the hardest thing to do spraying is way harder
Doc said I have IN-ZOMBIE-A Is that bad
Idea; install a factory style laser counter, or an incidental scale of some kind(simple impact plate?), and weigh, or count every kernal on the combine. There could also be an infra red moisture sensor incorporated fairly easily. Please tell your friend and maybe he can profit from this idea, so he can expand his farm and take back from the big GMO/gangster companies that are doing alot of harm to our farming brothers.

No wonder people live in them instead of tearing them down. Only a tornado really hurts them.

You just know that whenever there's regulations saying don't walk inside a grain bin etc its because someone at some point has died or been severely injured that way, that's really how most regulations are created.
