Why Won't our Planter Work?! On days like today, I am so thankful for the amazing customer service John Deere and Midwest Machinery offer. After a long day of frustration we're finally getting some acers planted.

Zach Johnson, the “Millennial Farmer” is a 5th-generation farmer who’s spent his life growing, working, and learning on his family’s farm. His wit and dry sense of humor appeal to children and adults alike. A product of the millennial generation, his appreciation of new technology blends with his old-fashioned work ethic, and he offers a unique ability to deliver his message in a way that resonates with lifelong farmers as well as those with no knowledge of agriculture.
With growing consumer awareness about where their food comes from, Zach has identified the need for an independent voice from the front lines of agriculture. Zach actively promotes agriculture by sharing his day-to-day experiences in the agriculture world while providing farmer-to-farmer education to help facilitate a collaborative conversation between farmers and the public.

  • You are a farmer and I am sure you will figure it out, but was hoping when it would not work correctly ! would have been good for you to pop out of the cab and Poke your finger on the sowing machine and say " Are you Okay"

  • I'm not a farmer, but I do work in a technical field, and this would drive me absolutely insane. Expensive gear etc. you'd just want it to work. But no. Sometimes I do miss the old mechanical days so much. Good old wires, gears and chains. At the same time that brings with it many other problems. So I guess we as humans are just never happy :)
