Ripping Through Acres & Grain Bags...Oops!

We've been asked a number of times why we are bagging grain when we just built new storage. Answer is that new storage isn't even enough to hold this year's crop. Last year we had 50,000 bushels on the ground and another 50,000 in our equipment cold storage. This year we have 75,000 bushels in new grain bins which means another 30,000 - 50,000 needs to go somewhere. This is why we are working with Loftness to make more storage.
Welker Farms has been short on grain storage for a number of years now but 2020 is the year we fix that!

    • @Daniel Johnston that's what I thought the 1 of the proceedyre for ''fixing a split'' was... something like: ''seal it as an ''end'' and start another tube with what's left....'' but.... if it's system is ''ONE BAG AT A TIME START TO FUNISH'' and not just ''a big bunch of bag material you can adjust your sizes with'' .....did that make sense??? prolly only in my head....

      Alex MikhaelAlex Mikhael2 months ago
    • Just a thought, but maybe just splitting that ripped bag and vacing some out to reseal it might work much better in the long run.

I especially enjoy watching the harvesting videos. Your videography is excellent as well as your content.I would love to drive a combine someday! I really miss the farm life.God bless you and your family and always keep Jesus first!

  • 12:26 do you guys know stone burriers? Those are pretty great to get rid of most of the weed including the seeds since they will mostly be burried too deep to come back. So the next plant can use the nutrients stored in those seeds. 😙🎶 You can also run through the areas where you pick up all those stones to get rid of them :)

  • F Things have sure changed We were required to work on farms starting at age 8 Most of what we did was by hand. You would come home with cuts from rhubarb knives stung from one end to the other. Hands and arms full of thorns fingers smash by conveyers etc. my brothers looked like prize fighters by age 13. These guys look like old college boys home on spring vacation. Although in there defense we didn’t get near as much done and did put in as many hours Luca

  • I think you put so much weight in the cart it pushed the back end of the bagger into the ground causing it to rip. But that's my opinion

  • Hi lads. Question 🤔... Will it not, in time, ruin the clutch on the tractor when you're releasing it at 1800rpm to move forward whilst emptying the trailer.? Surely it can't be great for it. You would have thought by now that they could have 2 different rpm's running at the same time. It would be good for muck spreading, amongst other things. Love ya's orl. Rich (UK). 🥰

    richardj ellisrichardj ellis2 months ago
  • When I was about 3yrs old, my grandad got his tie caught up on a pto shaft😭. He was dressed up cos he'd been to the bank, but, on his return, found my dad and uncle struggling with the shaft on a notorious muck spreader. NOTE... This was around 1976. Long before HEALTH AND SAFETY was invented 🤔🤣. He went in to help, obviously forgetting about the smart shirt and tie, and it somehow got attached to the shaft, at the universal joint, and it pulled him down that hard that he spent 12wks in hospital and another few months at home, in bed, with a fractured and open skull(🧠🤮) Luckily, the tie undid itself and wrapped itself around the shaft, leaving my pop's in the yard, with his skull split in two places, where the chunk in the middle came out and landed in his shirt top pocket (which HE thought was hilarious, afterwards that is🙄), leaving his brain actually showing, and blood everywhere. Luckily, my dad and 2 of the 4 brothers were there to get him to A&E. PTO's are dangerous. But, he always told that story to us kids(who were about 10yrs old and horrified🥺), with the chunk as his 'punch line'. Odd sense of humour my pop's🤔. The 'actual' funny thing, was that he was gutted that he had to go and buy a new shirt and tie(farmers, eh.!)🙄🤣. Keep warning folks of the dangers on the farm. Some farmers just need reminding once in a while 🤠. Keep the vids coming. Love it♥️.!!!. Rich (UK). 🥰🥰

  • Canola (OSR in the UK) is an excellent break crop for many reasons. An advantage for you guys (I think) would be that it would / could help your weed control significantly. Then you get a cracking wheat crop after canola.

    Ben PattinsonBen Pattinson2 months ago
  • If you struggle to grow wheat with what rain you get id stay away from something like canola.

  • we farm a lot of canola up here in Saskatchewan Canada and the yields are amazing and the price per bushel is around 12-15 dollars per and we normally see 50-60 bushel crop yields but the input costs are high like the cost of seed and we often are spraying fields 3 times to keep weed pressure down. That said its still worth we call it black gold!!!! Great rotational crop for cereals try it you will get hooked on the black gold.

  • Ive always been a believer in closing the auger on the graincart everytime. I know you lose a little grain by doing that, but that beats the wear and tear it will take running up and down the field, or worse, it gets clipped on something, like a utility pole or tree,lol. I also close the unload auger on the combine every time as well. I know some guys leave them out, and I use to leave mine out as well some, but I feel its safer to just shut it.

  • Grain bags are definitely a love hate relationship One minute your marvelling at 100s of thousands of bushels of cheap storage laying in your feild The next its all the profanities as it splits or jams or the old crap tractor everyone uses on the bagged gives up All the fun At least your going into your winter Theres plenty of stoies of bags sitting in the Aussie sun and splitting the full length from over heating and a small hole tears the full way Hate useing them but love them at the same time
