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.)

  • Farmer sees title: **blushes**

    • You know i did

    • Aw shucks

    • @Jabby 101 u

    • @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.

  • I've grown up in farmland.. my grandpa was a farmer, I've been out there many many times growing up! I've never seen how those bins were made tho.. they had tiny bins that were there before my time, and larger bins that were transported in as whole from the neighbors. never saw how they were actually made tho! Also... I've had much experience with harvest, with beans and also corn. Beans usually went straight into the bins. But the corn.. it would go from the grain truck or gravity boxes, and it would go into a dryer which would dry it first, and then from there it would be augered into the bins! we also had these devices which we would collect a small sample from a spout that we would push in and it would spit out the sample into the cup, and we would slowly pour it into the reader which would tell us if it was dry enough or not. My mom's cousin was also a grain trucker.. I rode with him many MANY times in my teen years! The truck loading, the auger at the bottom of the bin.. it's all VERY familiar with me! I love this video so much, it brings back so many memories! Thank you so much for this video!

  • Awsome learned new things

  • Can you do an episode on how owls fly so quietly?

  • beeps gotta go

  • Ugh, when he talked about getting trapped inside the beans with the beans sucking you down...that made me super anxious. I wonder if that’s happened!!! I am afraid to look it up!

  • 14:20 I love how humble that man is- knows more than most, worked his whole life and still questions himself in a good way. What a role model!

  • Any farmers tell you about grain bin fires from particulates igniting?

  • I love your video very much I want to become like you 😯

  • AOC and the squad along with their democrat green new deal will end this environmentally destructive nonsense. we only have 12 years to save the planet!

  • First of all, most of that grain or soybeans doesn't go to our plate, it goes to the trough of livestock. So many people see those fields of corn and soy and they think they are somehow eating that. They are eating what's eating it, but most of that grain ends up as manure. Some does end up as corn syrup or tofu, but it is a relatively small amount. And more has ended up as ethanol and biodiesel in recent years. Really interesting video though. Humans can be smart.

  • I liked the positive message toward farmers! Thanks man

  • That lucky grain, can we build little people bins for the homeless !

  • THAT was fascinating. Now I want to go volunteer to work on a grain farm....

  • I grew up on a farm. Your education starts at a very young age. From the first day you are able to set foot in the field. Generations of knowledge are handed down. Each generation learning to adapt to new technologies. Farmers must know something about every occupation you can think of. I couldn’t begin to list everything you must know. And farmers never quit. My dad is 83 and hasn’t slowed down yet. Hard work and long hours. The first thing you learn !

  • Destin is the adult version of Dustin from Stranger Things

  • Is this how they made Farming Simulator?

  • Im 24 and just started my first farming job ever, and this is actually super useful to me. thankyou.

  • Cool accents. Cool job.

  • I love how farmers now are gaining some respect from kids trapped in the basement.

    • Slander is the tool of the loser.

  • Thank you for the great video. Thank you to the farmers.

  • Genesis 41:48 And he gathered up all the food of the seven years, which were in the land of Egypt, and laid up the food in the cities: the food of the field, which was round about every city, laid he up in the same.

  • I like how you went into a “country” accent while on the farm. Sounds like a totally different person during the “Hello Fresh” plug. 😂🤣😂

  • I learned that your accent gets thicker when you talk with other heavy accented folks.

  • Punches look like metal chopsticks

  • That's a lot of food

  • What a great fun video to watch...well done man!

  • How about you make a video about irrigation technology

  • most annoying voice I have ever heard. sheep live here.

  • Farming is awesome.

  • Farmers are the backbone of America!!

  • Amen bruh. Growing cornses isn't easy...but dang the field is fun to play in after harvest.

  • I am guessing that moisture tester works on electric conductivity with water: water being more conductive than solid soy. The more water in the soy the higher the conductivity, less water means less conductivity.

  • That would be a sick house

  • "Farmers are the backbone of America". Tomorrow he's a Senator.

  • Would love to see more videos deep diving into farming. Please do a playlist of these!

  • You saw the easy part of grain bind cleaning those things is a pain in the but and it’s toxic with all the dust goggles and masks are a must

  • Thanks for this episode! Farmers are the lifeblood of our country and rarely get the respect they deserve!

  • I really love your Farming videos. Please do more .


  • this video just makes me wanna become a farmer

  • Montana agriculture remains proud to feed Americans.

  • wow


  • When people say their kid has ADHD, I always remind them that ADHD is one of the greatest gifts they have....ask the farmer how many skills they need to be able to perform at the drop of a hat...it seems like the education system is trying to engineer this out of our kids to be 1 skilled organisms? The answer is in the dirt....

  • ok lets be serious for a second, farmers aren't geniuses they're doing a job just like a grocer, or a shoemaker, or any other manual labor type job. The geniuses are the ones who engineered those machines and techniques.

  • It's fun to play in grain bins and safe too!

  • this video reminds me "FBNFarmers " in Minnesota (MN Millennial Farmer)

  • 59. And with Him are the keys of the Ghaib (all that is hidden), none knows them but He. And He knows whatever there is in (or on) the earth and in the sea; not a leaf falls, but he knows it. There is not a grain in the darkness of the earth nor anything fresh or dry, but is written in a Clear Record. (TQS.6 :59)

    • WTF is that ? Devils Book of darkness?

  • This is totally one of the elite youtube channels, just discovered you couple weeks ago, Superbly professionally done in all aspects. And entertaining and witty!
