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!!

    Have your LP dealer install a 'vaporizer'. As LP gets colder, it looses it's ability to convert to vapor. (At -44F it's 100% liquid, no vapor). Usually home use doesn't draw enough gas to have a problem... but grain driers draw much more. Actually, ...better to have dryer harvest seasons, and not need to dry grain!

    My Newspaper is delivered in a plastic sock bag...which I save and use at the DRIVE-UP fast food windows as a CONDUM cover over my beverage cups. Hot gooffe or soda is placed in the bag and a tight know is tied. Now the lids stay on and a split is contained. When I drink, I insert my plastic straw thru the plastic bag into the bevereage cup. Now if I tip it over, only a small dribble from the straw piercing happens.

    As has been said in many comments, you are very fortunate with your partner - that applies to both of you. Just shows, again, that women can do almost everything we can do - there are a few things that are sex specific but, other than a genetic bias towards strength and size, they aren't important for most jobs. I may be biased towards them, though, as those who have the determination to make it past the 'macho BS*' that infests many industries have proven to be damned good workers! *Wonder if that triggers anyone? :-D

    Not a farmer but I did work on a farm here in Kentucky during my high school/college-age years. I loved it and miss it even though it has been 35yrs ago. Our operation was not nearly as large as yours but through my modest farming experiences it instilled in me a dream of always wanting to operate the "large equipment" out in the midwest under the wide-open skies of this magnificent country. I never have gotten that opportunity, and probably never will given the fact I have cancer now but, by discovering your channel at least I'm able to live it vicariously through you guys. Keep up the hard work as it is greatly appreciated and fascinating.
