Each year we must have seed to plant crops and the best thing a farmer can do is make sure the quality of seed is good. We do this by taking grain from last year and having it cleaned on site. This process removes cracked and shriveled kernels and purifies the seed from weed seeds and chaff. One step closer to plant 2020!
MUD!! But we are forced to do it under extremely muddy conditions. This is where Yankum ropes shine! Interested? Grab one below!

  • I know it's 6 months too late but what they do down south on their muddy access roads to the logging woods is lay out round straw bales and roll em out..

  • Oh man the ripped pants lol - one of my funniest stories, I was having a rough week at work, I was working on commissioning an airflow system in a science building at Unversity of Alabama, and the whole day was a pain, slow work, bad meetings with the owner, and I decided to go bowling. I did 2 strings of big ball bowling, and the kids at the lane next to me were laughing at me the whole time. I had no idea why, my bowling wasnt't that bad... Paid and left, when I got in my car, I dropped the keys in my lap and they felt cold... looked down, my pants looked just like yours... Whole seam in the crotch split and I bowled like that for 2 strings - I laughed so hard, and the rest of the week wasn't bad at all

  • Why not just make the road higher than the ground? If you had a pitch to it it’ll help as well rn the water is just sitting in it

  • In these situations we use a grain cart. Like when we empty grain bags. Can then just leave the trucks on the road

  • What we have done in the past is to use anderson plugs hooked up to the batteries on the vehivles/machines and then made a set of jumper cables with the anderson plugs on both ends. No need to lift bonnets or risk shorting out on the clamps. Works a treat, and brain dead easy to use. Being an Aussie we find any way to work smarter🤣

  • First, thanks to all farmers around the world for the hard work they do feeding the world. Second, Please use a tow clevis the correct way. The loop end should be out so the tow strap, chain or whatever you use to pull as a smooth place to turn or twist. Especially when using straps because it could bind in the clevis pin and cut. Look at pics of tow trucks and watch an operator use the equipment the correct way. God Bless.

    AtomicBlondeAtomicBlonde7 months ago
  • So I see a cool fab idea to since the Bud isn't being used to plant. I think you could put a removable basket on the back to hold the rope so you don't have to throw the rope over the rear axle. Just a thought but keep up the great work!

  • You mentioned replacing those old Ford trucks in the future. Why not replace them with short trailers and use the International or one off the Pete's to haul them. Fewer trucks to maintain and the one you have would benefit from being used more.

  • Heck if y’all could fine some good rocky dirt somewhere raise the ground on the road area and pack it in should help keep the road area to load in and out dry even this time of your!! But again I have no idea I live in North Carolina ground is a different animal here then there just an idea I’ve got about 7 years of grading experience digging basements and doing subdivision when I was yours maybe it will help y’all out some of wear and tear in your trucks no one likes mud on there equipment good seeing videos missed y’all can’t wait to see the lake house done place is beautiful I’ve got my wife watching the house videos she loves it she ain’t much on grain farming but she is hooked after I showed y’all’s house videos

      Robert WelkerRobert Welker7 months ago
  • I'll bet Legarms could fabricate tow bumpers for both those trucks from the scrap steel you have around the place.You surely will be pulling them again and again.Back up with the rope drop a pin in and go.Be easier then crawling or kneeling in the mud with ripped pants to put a chain around the frame.

  • They ran to the groceries, they filled up their carts, 🛒🥩🥚🥛 They emptied the Great American and Price Chopper and even Walmart, They panicked and fought and then panicked some more, Then they rushed to their homes and they locked all the doors. The food will be gone! The milk eggs and cheese! 😱 The yogurt! The apples! The green beans and peas! The stores have run out, now what will we do? 😩 They’ll be starving and looting and nothing to do!☹️ Then they paused, and they listened a moment or two. And they did hear a sound, rising over the fear, It started out far, then began to grow near. 👍 But this sound wasn’t sad, nor was it new, The farms were still doing what farms always do. ❤️ The food was still coming, though they’d emptied the shelves, The farms kept it coming, though they struggled themselves, Though the cities had forgotten from where their food came, The farms made them food every day, just the same. Through weather and critics and markets that fall, The farms kept on farming in spite of it all. 👩‍🌾 🌱 🌽 They farmed without thank yous. They farmed without praise. They farmed on the hottest and coldest of days. 💪🏼 They’d bought all the food, yet the next day came more, And the people thought of something they hadn’t before. Maybe food, they thought, doesn’t come from a store. Maybe farmers, perhaps, mean a little bit more. ❤️ 🐂🐄 -Anna Richards Thank you Farmers, Truckers, Grocery store employees and everyone that has a helping hand in this horrific situation!! ❤️❤️❤️

  • Hey guys another great video. Just a warning though, a farmer near me lost his life when a chain at the end of a rope broke. The bungee cord effect from the rope threw the chain through the rear window. Might want something to protect the tractor driver. Stay safe and keep the videos coming it’s great content!!!

  • Hey guys, try rotating those soft shackles 90 degrees from how you were using them. The knot is supposed to be on the side and the black reinforced part touching both truck and recovery rope side. There is a little diagram on that tag that came on the shackle if you still have it. You’ll need to have someone hold the shackle (new they are bent incorrectly) in the correct position, then give it a good long tow and they will take a set. From then on out, they will lie correctly and you can set them up alone. Here is a picture, replace (dots) with a . tacticalrecoveryequipment(dot)com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/20170919-3L0A6488-300x200(dot)jpg I’m sure they will be fine but there must be a reason Yankum and other manufacturers all recommend the same setup.

    Devin PattersonDevin Patterson7 months ago
    • Welker Farms Inc No problem! The first time I used mine, I actually called the guy over at Yankum and asked him. He was very helpful and gave me that advice about having someone hold it and leaving it under load for a while to take a set.
