Millennial Farmer

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!!

    WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU NOT RUN IN AUTO......Its a great system....If your manual running your meter rolls than your not getting the best grain out....Also another thing you might want to look at is putting a VFD on your cyclone system, works great with adjusting the blower speed using the signal off the meter roll speed......great video

    the reason why that bearing went out so fast cuz you have pat grease in those lil bearing wheels first before you put them in the hub. then put the hub together then fill it up with grease.

    Memories. Back as a kid in NoDak dad bought a big 31 ft cultivator (we called it a tool bar, also known as a chisel plow) that kept losing wheels. Dad figured out that the manufacturer should have put grease zirks (yep, that’s what we called them) in the hubs. So he stocked up on roller bearings, races, zirks etc and taught his number 1 hired man (me) how to pack bearings drill and thread the hubs etc and away I went. Good times. Thanks for the videos, they always remind me of what a fantastic childhood I had.

    Its a big investment but what about swapping the propane system for a windpowered electric dryer? Looks kind of flat and open where you are so should be a good area for windpower and an electric dryer could just be connected to the powergrid if windpower should fail when needed.

    A Bearing's life is determined mostly by how it is put in place. DON'T HIT IT WITH A HAMER ! Put in the freezer when its an 'iny', heat it up to 120 C ( with your wife's induction stove preferably, heats perfectly evenly) when an 'outy', or press it in when you dont have the time.

    A technique for figuring out how tight to do those stub axle nuts up. Grease up the bearing and massage the grease into the cage. Now assemble and spin a few times with the nut firm. At this point put the wheel on and tighten wheel nuts. Now spin the wheel vigorously, even pummelling it with a decent hammer. Keep nipping up the stub axle nut. Even with a big wheel, you should feel when it gets firm and has resistance. Slack off the nut and repeat the process. lastly slack off and do up to within approx one flat of when it has resistance. Now drive thru your retaining pin and bend over. Install grease cover. Lower to the ground and rechech wheel nuts. Taper roller bearings are very LIKELY to fail if they are too tight! The flat end of the big dia of the roller is forced up against the square edge on the cone. It is a rubbing action. Makes heat and metal! I have seen semi axle bearings welded together in 100 miles. Hope this may help you one day.
