  • I got to you guys from Sonne Farms then Millennial Farmer. I grew up in the PNW and the wheat farms of Eastern Washington always fascinated me. I'm really enjoying the humor, interest and work you do. This video warmed my heart. To see a big beautiful piece of Ag history be refurbished and modernized is wonderful. To see what Case IH did to bring auto guidance is truly amazing. It would be fun if you could travel back in time to the 80's and show them what their equipment will be able to do in the future. Thanks for keeping the heritage alive and working, not just a museum piece.

  • Nice to see these old Dinosaurs resurrected from the past by someone. The Wagner, Rite, Big Bud days are long gone, now that 500hp tractors are everywhere. The difference in operating these basic old tractors from today's, is like flying Coach vs 1st Class.

  • standing between joint of an articulating tractor that"s running (6:29) can get you KILLED instantly. This comes from first hand experience. I pulled my friends dead body out after the tractor snapped shut like a mousetrap and killed him. Please use caution around farm equipment!

  • What kind gesture with what was found in the shop ... Really appreciate people “that care” and want to teach about nature is an added bonus. As a suggestion only you should check out Ted Andrews book “Animal Speak Pocket Guide” where he gives first a one or two word descriptor what birds animals ... represent shamanically and then a longer sentence or two or three expanded description. Of course the one word for Dove is peace. Great video about Montana farming ... I’ll bet a few staying home appreciate the great expanse of Montana farming “Welker Style”. Great family operation that gets it done ... what the rest of America should be about! Appreciate all the effort it takes to record and edit all of this material. Thank You

  • I really liked Leg Arms comment about how a dead seed can go from a bin to the ground and spring new life with just some water, some nurting and love. It's that way with our lives too! You can be dead inside and needing some water of life and then can sprout a new life again and grow fruit. God sent Jesus to die for all of us so we can spiritually die and be reborn and live a better life. Never give up, keep praying, keep having faith and hope and be kind and love one another! Thank you farmers for keeping the circle of life going!

  • Might be a good time to shop for updated trucks the truck market is completely depressed now. Ever considered updating the drivetrain on the Buds? newer tech would give you a considerable fuel savings 20% should be easy to gain, just a thought.

    mike underwoodmike underwood6 months ago
    • Definitely true on the trucks, we are looking into options. As for the tractors, they have some of the most efficient drivetrain systems out there. Two of our buds use standard transmissions which mean nearly zero energy lost in clutch packs and torque converters and our other has a mining grade transmission that locks up and delivers efficient power to the wheels. Our old engines burn 20-30% less fuel than new because they are not bogged down with emission systems. We burn 200-250 gallons a day and an equivalent new tractor would burn 300-350 gal a day. It's crazy to think 40 years old and they are this efficient but it is true.
