Millennial Farmer

I am a 5th generation family farmer from West-Central Minnesota. The recent interest in food, combined with a large amount of 'misinformation' has driven me to start this channel. I hope to be someone people can relate to and trust when they question how their food is grown and raised. I also hope to become a 'smarter' farmer through my experiences with this channel. I strongly believe we must have an open mind and a willingness to learn about others, or we cannot move forward as one. My goal is to build the connection between farmers and consumers by facilitating a collaborative conversation amongst everyone. I do this by sharing my day-to-day farming experiences, my opinions on certain topics, and occasionally visiting other farms and businesses to help better understand other farming and business practices. There is no limit to where this channel may go, so please join me!!

    I hung an auger on a tree limb last month on my friends grain cart. Fortunately it was an older cart and it didn’t mess up the auger flights but I had to replace a section of the end half of the auger casing where it wadded up. I definitely felt crappy about doing it but I felt way better when I had it fixed and you could barely tell it happened.

    I've never run a grain cart, but I think I would fold the auger in everytime after I unloaded at the truck, just as the combine usually does. Hiting trees, and combines is one thing. However a young guy named Zach Short almost got killed about five years ago when the grain cart auger got jammed into overhead powerlines at the edge of their field. It resulted in bilateral leg amputations, and severe electrical burns to his left arm. Search youtube for "Nothing Short Of A Miracle" if you care to.
