Nothing Like Waiting Until The Last Minute- Days before plant 2021 we're tearing down the planter for some major upgrades. We are going to be installing a brand new Exact Emerge Performance Upgrade Kit from John Deere. We will be able to plant with better accuracy up to at least 10 MPH, which will make our planter more efficient.

Zach Johnson, the “Millennial Farmer” is a 5th-generation farmer who’s spent his life growing, working, and learning on his family’s farm. His wit and dry sense of humor appeal to children and adults alike. A product of the millennial generation, his appreciation of new technology blends with his old-fashioned work ethic, and he offers a unique ability to deliver his message in a way that resonates with lifelong farmers as well as those with no knowledge of agriculture.
With growing consumer awareness about where their food comes from, Zach has identified the need for an independent voice from the front lines of agriculture. Zach actively promotes agriculture by sharing his day-to-day experiences in the agriculture world while providing farmer-to-farmer education to help facilitate a collaborative conversation between farmers and the public.

    I have been watching your vids for a while, time to subscribe i guess. I am not a farmer, i live in north eastern ontario canada. however, i do watch other farm vids. one in particular, Mike Mitchell's channel. the Mitchells as a family, farm around 40,000 acres of red and green lentils, chickpeas, hard red spring wheat, durum, canola, and barley. I only bring this to your attention because your two operations seem very similar, however, the Mitchell's use a no till farming practice. I thought maybe you two can hook up and chat and see what has worked in the past and perhaps find something in common to help each other. if you are interested, this is his channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRDywryGtWBmac-O4AReYpA/about

      @Millennial Farmer sorry about that, as I was saying would a paradigm shift in farming be feasible, possible and lead to GHG reduction? Do you believe the NASA photos of carbon in the atmosphere being high in April & May due to tillage & then lower in the summer as crops use carbon dioxide as they grow? Is the agenda out to lunch or just propaganda? It has to not cost farmers more capital and other input costs. Lots to discuss. The Conservative Party of Canada has to come up with a climate change policy to counter that of the liberal party’s policy which is taxing the public with a carbon tax of $200/metric tonne by 2030. Attacking fossil fuels is not the sole answer. I feel like we are between a rock and a hard place. I’m not a farmer now but I was raised on a mixed farm on Prince Edward Island in Atlantic Canada where we had dairy, beef, sheep, chickens, pigs and geese while we grew potatoes, barley, oats, wheat, hay(with six different grass varieties) and pasture land as well. Crop rotation was the order the day and keeping lots of humus in the soil was a must to help prevent soil erosion as the land was hilly or gently rolling with lots of rainfall. The average field size was ten acres with hedge rows surrounding each field. It looked like the English countryside. My brother still farms our family farm today in much the same way as our family did since we started in 1807 with modern equipment but still using crop rotation (ie. potatoes once every 8 years in the same field). The farm is 400 acres but my brother still has to plough and work the land in order to plant a crop as you can’t zero tillage in sod ground. He uses a lot of manure as he has a lot of it. Sorry for rambling on but I thought you might like to know what I’m all about. I also really enjoy your videos. You are an influencer. I really like your two dogs as well.
