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.)

  • 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.

  • 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)

  • One problem is you need a sweep auger to get the rest of the grain out because you usually only have one or two holes in the floor to get the grain out and it gets hot and dusty fast so there is a reason for the permantly sweep auger in there just because of the size.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • "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.
