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.)

  • The change in accent while with the farmer is really interesting from a linguistic perspective. His accent is more southern, and Destin used a technique called convergence in order to make the situation easier socially. It’s something we all do all the time and may make an interesting video.

  • 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 How something of such vital interest can be superseded by funding for relatively ridiculous (or outright destructive) enterprises....is 'mind-blowing'....diplomatically stated....Agricultural enterprise should be a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.

  • 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.
