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.
His email is: dannylef2 at yah00 d0t c0m
(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.)

Watching this video, it's really a tragedy to know that economists all predict that the American farmer will go extinct in a matter of a few decades.

Point to Ponder: I heard Paul Harvey one day (about 40 years ago) say "The farmer is the only business man that buys retail and sells wholesale." Think about it!

0:19 nah smh. in the uk, its almost always cloudy, except over the mornings. our fields are very well watered, and you will almost always see a sign of civilisation. we are densely packed, not spread out like america.

I'm glad you addressed the dangers of grain bins. I live in a rural area and there's at least one local news article every year of a farmer who died in a grain bin accident.

I’m a retired millwright and have built many a grain bin, as well as grain driers. I kept waiting for someone to call the punch, a “drift pin”. BTW....What are cornses??? Lol.

Aside from the tech ...I had never thought twice about on a drive through farms (In Illinois and Kansas)...derailed a bit now...for so long I've been concerned with agriculture and economics. Sorry (sort of ) to politicize....but it is a matter of immense public relevance to understand the challenges of, especially with independents, for the men and women in this work. How something of such vital interest can be superseded by funding for relatively ridiculous (or outright destructive) enterprises....is 'mind-blowing'....diplomatically stated....Agricultural enterprise should be a foremost concern for funding at all levels....not only R&D, but to perpetually insure those involved against unpredictable variances...and I have no specific affiliations...just a little common sense... Anyway...great video...Thanks!

In Australia it's a little different. We will be and have already started harvest. The farmers only have one or two bins. The rest is harvest and instantly send of to be weighed and sold to a receival point. Not going of volume but by weight entirely. 50 tons out of the back a 18 wheeler in a minute. Last year my father ran a receival site which took in 370 thousand tons, in about 8 weeks. The site is open 16 hours a day. I'll be starting the end of the month and will start with 8 hours a day and going up to 12. Farmers don't worry about humidity they just harvest when it's dry.

I've always wanted to be a farmer. Maybe my mechanical engineering degree will land me more of an agricultural job than i figured.

This might sound odd, but try using compost on your corn, like burying part of a fish in with the seeds. Compost pile/bin helps to just don't put it where you can smell stuff breaking down to nutrients (it stinks bad). (Thank you for this video, amazing seeing how farmers take care of huge responsibilities and problems)

Destin, glad you were able to see how farming works. I grew up working for farmers. It’s a great experience and tells you a lot about how people in the middle part of the country live. It is so offensive when the coastal folks call us “fly over” country. They have no idea how much they depend on us. Great video. Keep up the great work.

“Farmers are the backbone of America” that is true but nobody seems to really care and think that the food comes from nowhere.

"Farmers are Geniuses" is a very true statement, those who are not, do not last long in farming.
