I Accidentally Saved The Farm $40,000
- Published on: Monday, December 9, 2019
- Harvest is wrapping up on Cornstar Farms. The video starts with bin fans being shut off, filling diesel tanks, and checking on augers in the big machine shed. After heading to the main heated shop with the 1995 Dodge 3500 Laramie dually, we filled the 2001 Case IH 2388 combine with diesel fuel, cleaned the windows, and greased it.
After cold starting the 1981 John Deere 4840 and the 1991 Case IH 7140, I brought the case over to the main farm to fix a plugged auger. In the mean time, Cooper and Chuck got started combining. Once I got the auger unplugged, I ran out to the field to join Chuck and Cooper. When I was waiting for the combine to fill up, I got out to inspect the job the combine was doing and evaluated if we should change settings on the combine.
After lunch, Cooper was having some power issues with the combine. We were not sure if a fuel filter was plugged, if the rotor was plugged, or if the air filter needed replacing. We tried cleaning out the rotor first. Although cleaning the rotor helped, it did not solve the issue. We ended up changing fuel filters.
After combining for a few hours, I decided to talk about what I think about while I am in a field. One of those things is how I can improve a farm. I highlight a few things I would improve about the farm we are currently on and about how we implemented no-till corn on corn into our operation and plan on continuing to do so in the future. I discuss how we plan to manage residue and the things we are doing in our operation right now for no-till corn on corn to excel.
Thank you for watching!
