              Charlie McKellips Around my nick of the woods guys break the drive axles, and break the center's out of the wheels , have only seen two rear axles break , and the result was catastrophic.

              @Becky Watt yeah, I know it's common. The one I saw didn't have duals. But just broke off right where it pivots in the middle.

              Charlie McKellips I've seen all models of JD combines break axles , but most of the time it's only when you put duals on them .

                            I have always wondered when they harvest corn, at night, how many wild animals they run into out in the field! Bears/trash pandas/fox/wolf/deer?

                              Oh the joys of farming. I farmed with my family for 27 years of my life. Just north of you up here in Manitoba. Back in '97 it was so wet the grain carts couldn't even get in the fields. I drove the combine up on the side of the ditch and was dumping in a truck that was parked on the side of a road. When I backed up I mistakenly backed the rear tire into a culvert and ripped off the entire axle. Same deal. Crippled in a ditch full with 4 ft of water. What I've learned is that if you can survive grain farming you can survive any other occupation with ease.

                                You guys are amazing! There is not ONE skill set here. You need to be able to do multiple tasks on a farm, and the more you call for help the less $$ you make!

                                  Yes, having zero skills and never really doing anything ourselves is how we ended up owning and managing a successful farm.

                                  Why don't you just put the corn in the silos instead of bagging it . Have you heard of grain elevators that you can put the corn in . People do work there and they know what to do with the corn

                                    @Millennial Farmer no I was just curious as to why you were bagging your corn . I'm not being disrespectful. Farming is a hard life. I know what it's all about.

                                    @Grizzly Bear ok? So you took to the internet to mock me for making the decision to put our extra grain into 2 bags?

                                    @Millennial Farmer I'm being serious with you. I also use to work on a big farm we would get up at 4 in the morning and stop work at 10 o'clock in the evening. I know what hard work is. Casterating 5 hundred hogs and plowing the fields. Planting the soy beans and corn. We bailed alfalfa and hay from day to dark .

                                    @Grizzly Bear yes. That's the reason we invest in those bins. We store the grain for a few months and pick up the carry in the grain contracts. I can't tell if you're serious or being sarcastic.

                                    @Millennial Farmer so you are saying that you would gain $1 dollar for the corn by putting it in your grain silos . Huh never heard of that.

                                          This statement is really a rather oversimplified and somewhat incorrect way of stating the real issue. Both producers and consumers are dependant on market prices. It is the guys in between who all want their cut. Right now there may well be a change in what consumers demand, but sometimes such changes are initiated by those involved in the food business, whom in turn have a say in what farmers should be growing. That is the kind of control/power at their fingertips. So, as a grower, their frustrations are misdirected if they feel the need to react to consumers complaints. One either acknowledges their grievances and ensure that their points are responded to, by way of dismissing that which is factually incorrect and explaining why various choices are made, or one can dismiss the complaints outright, since the consumers grief is related to the marketing and pricing of product, which invariably are issues outside of the producer's control..A big part of the problem lies in the huge disconnect between producer and consumer, where we have gone from an agrarian economy society, to what we have today where a large service sector exists and there is even a noticeable chasm between the producer and consumer in an 'us and them' kind of way. Now, I don't know where and how it started, but you see, your line up there isn't helping matters. There are no complaining consumers here, so what is your actual issue?

                                            stick jr. I ran a 2,500 farm for my boss man , we went to work at 7am to 7;30 pm . When we were planting the crops and 7; am to 7;30 pm when we were harvesting the crops. But after we got the crops planted we went to work at 7am to 6pm . we took an hour off for lunch. I say that if you got to work from morning till late late you got more land than you need. Your hands are going to be quiting you pretty often. it's not 30s any more. Then the boss said if a man dies , Hire another one. if the Mule dies will Buy another one. with the technology we have today, Especially how big and better. You can plant and harvest 20 times faster than then. You see I came up when there wasn't nothing but Mules . TRY farming with just mules and see how much you can get done in a sunup to sundown day. Then you will surely appreciate the technology that we have today. Fast and Big. From a half a row to a 90 foot wide header on a combine. To a cotton picker that picks the cotton and round bale it and rap it with plastic and puts it on the ground ready to be picked up and carried to gin for ginning .

                                          I can’t even count the times something like that has happened. The only thing you can do is grab the jacks, some wrenches, and a couple of spot lights and go to it. The fact that no one was injured is the important part. There are lots full of combines.

                                                  Basic problem is the axle may look broken ! but a fatigue in bolts "U" bolts what ever is maybe the issue. Being from the UK can also say following your farm and subscribed, love what you's guy's do and are up against along the way. But something is always going to become against your side, Damage and cost is stupid considering the bolts alone only cost coppers $$$, being a commercial mechanic over they years on Trucks and busses, maybe it best to keep older equip on what we called a TRIA annual, every three years strip the beast down and other machinery as much as you can and get rid of these unfortunate happenings that would cost you a days work and expenses from them John Deere guy's. Air bags and springs bolts and nuts were exchanged and replaced as ness to keep old and loved machinery going. PS: love all the vids and the latest with Welker was also a great vid from both sides, watched them both and wish you all the very best with future harvests. Between you and Welker are the only Farmers in op I actually watch. Nice job guy's

Than one evening our hired man was pulling out of a field cranked the wheel sharp and dropped the rear axle off a 5 foot culvert snapping it in two in the middle of the road. That was a long night getting that out of the road.

I was thinking of using one board and just rolling it up vs what we do now (grab end of bag and twist) but that looks even better. Might have to steal that idea :) ALSO, do you do the same thing on the other end of the bag or just twist and tuck the start end? I have been considering doing the board(s) on the start end as well but was concerned about it holding together. EDIT - Found the unloading video, yes you guys do use boards for the start. Thats a very good setup, i'm going to start doing that for sure now! :)

                                                                    I've gone completely over to Case/IH and the "ownability" factor is reason #1.

                                                                    Bad engineering?

I think everyone who eats should watch your channel and try to understand the troubles you and your family goes through on a daily basis to feed this country.
