      Lol...Dad = experience = reboot the system...go from there. My wife ran the data processing department at a cannery. Frequently received calls from 11pm to 5 am that their computers and equipment didn't work.... finally the first question she began to ask was "is it plugged in?"..2nd question was "is the computer turned on?". 97% of the time these questions solved the problem. If that failed she told them to reboot the system. 1 % of the time she would have to go in to solve the problem.

      I don’t think that we appreciate our farmers enough!

      I thought it was a bit dangerous when you were changing the mower blades while tractor engine was running

      How much m³ do you need of feed? I've been thinking of converting g over to bunkers and/or silos from bales so I've been watching your videos but the situations we have are totally different but I'd like to know how much m³ you need per cow?

    8. G Lawrence

      Very interesting never knew how this all works.

    9. Alexander Ramalho

      Love your vids

    10. D Hess

      I read through the comments and not sure it was mentioned but at the 3:01minute mark on your video you guys have a machine that grooms, scratches, massages (not sure what it does exactly other then making the lady cow feel really good) the lady cow's back and sides. This is the ultimate in caring for your cows. Though these cows are your "bread and butter" for making a living, the true CARING and LOVE you have for the lady cows is awesome and impressive. You do the jokes with the Mtn Dew cans and such but your concerns for your herd is very inspiring. Don't ever loose that quality!!!


      You need to buy a rock picker to pick up the rock in the fild

    12. Judith Wilber

      have to get out the old stool and bucket and milk by hand ay? lol that would be awesome!...cows know,their boobies get painfully full with no relief im sure

    13. maliM Gaming chanel

      Why do u have that type of movers in america we have front and back mover and is much faster

    14. Gregory ONeill

      Awesome video. The girls look great

    15. Na Vi

      HELLO FROM KOSOVO 🇽🇰🇽🇰 post more videos like this i watched all your videos and i dont have what to watch

    16. Christoph Rackwitz

      19:04 "dew"... missed opportunity

    17. Chris Bennett

      A lot like trucking always something needs fixing lol

    18. Seth

      With that milk pump issue, it got me wondering how many single points of failure are in the process. If a single device failure would put you out of business, shouldn't you have replacements on hand, or a redundant system? Or are there too many such critical points to be feasible?

    19. Zach Colgrove

      Do you prefer case or John deer

    20. Eric Davids

      Farmers work a very long day

    21. Patty Rasta

      How long is a dairy cow viable to produce milk? And what happens when they are no longer viable? Do they get put down or do they go to a feed lot? Also is there a reason that the alfalfa is in a curve next to the corn?

    22. Patty Rasta

      Those cows are like are you kidding me you got me up and now all our milk is on the floor!

    23. Tammy Fletcher

      One of my favorite smells....freshly mowed hay! If you bale it makes your barn smell so good up in the loft.

    25. cdmcl3

      another favorite video. tempo of an aircraft carrier flight deck. how the stones get where they cause damage is another mystery......

    27. Michael Vincent

      In my humble opinion your videos are doing a great deal to educate and form positive public opinion on the value of American farmers. We urban dwellers are in your debt. Thank you!

    28. Christopher D W

      Dont feel bad. Look at the bright side, it wasnt the bailer or your chopper..right? I was so tiny when dad put me in the tractor tugging loads to the silo, I could not reach the brakes every time and I slipped. Pulling away I hit the unloader on the wagon right into the dual extension that was left on for plowing. IT sheared the chain, the gearbox, the chute and all of the conveyor CLEAN off the wagon.. I didn't tell them til they had already loaded the wagon. He beat my skinny ass hard..with his leather Belt he MADE by hand.

    29. Christopher D W

      Unbelievable how far equipments come...Unreal. Talk about ( Is any of it paid off )

    30. DR smith

      Like the cow brush hope to see more .

    31. Mac Mcnamee

      Who or what controls the sprayer that sprays the grass into the trailer. It never hits the ground

    32. Jack Walker

      When do you sleep ?

    33. Chad Berning

      Great content

      It's better to change both knives anyway. That slight difference in weight on each side of the disc can give trouble at 2000 rpm.

    35. Joseph Kaiser

      That was wild, when I was a kid it was way more labor intense. Being the kid my job was to stamp the siege down while loading, then when feeding pitch it down by hand. The filling was way different also. Very nice vlog. Thank you. Oh ya, This was back in the 1940s.

    36. jUsT a ViSiToR

      Does your family and your parents live at the farm?

    37. Art Miller

      Wish I knew where. I milked 200+ head on my uncle's farm in Michigan. 4 am and 4pm everyday. The fields were full off stones. Our tractors were an old Farmall Super M and an H. Work never ended but the most pleasurable and enjoyable time of my life. I sure miss it.

    38. Lorraine Matteson

      Tom Pemberton gave your site a plug and I watched so many of your videos now, gone back a year! Keep up the the great videos. Mountain Dew jokes funny too!

    39. Ben Nawa

      Do you grow your alfalfa throughout the year?

    40. Thomas Perez

      I enjoy your cool demeanor as you talk to us here in KGup land. You seem so cool calm and collected. How do you do it each day. I have mentioned it before but I will say it again, your a hard worker and I don't hear you complain. Very professional at such a young age. You have my vote for all you do.

    42. Jamie's Farm Life

      Hi 10th generation diagram I watch you ever day you are cool

      1. Jamie's Farm Life

        You are so cool 10th generation diagram

    43. Steve Adams

      Fresh cut hay and Mountain Dew! An unbeatable combination... You are rockin' it Eric!

    44. Dave Gongwer

      hey guy why don't you do something new and take us in for breakfast with you?

    45. Brian King Welding

      Your head tank seems kind of undersized for the amount of milking units you're running. That pump probably runs constantly. We didn't have a automatic electric pump but rather haff to open a valve manually in order to drain the head tanks. Our parlor had one big Pyrex head tanks (80lb cap) for every 2 milking units

    46. Jasmin Grahic

      That 's great that the cows are smart enough to get out of the way of what your doing.

    47. P

      So that's how mountain dew is made

    48. Punith Gowda

      Which country this is

    49. Gayle WATKINS

      Your farm is the largest operation I have seen. So interesting to watch. You're a hard working family. I am watching your previous videos too. Best wishes.

    50. gunga din

      Lot of leaf dust coming off the chopper and wagon dump first loads. No dust off the rack with the dew on Nice. We used to do lotus major hay, loved the yellow flowers We milked Grade C 60 years ago, for cheese factory

    51. Ronald Piper

      I wonder who is incontrol? Is the chopper have sertain things he does. And the wagon job? I can assume wagon is to match speed chopper controls shoot and so forth interesting

    52. Ronald Piper

      Give the pc of concrete to give to dad as a gift.

    53. john connor

      How come you dont have your own equipment? Doesnt the lease and hire cost more than buying your own machines( i mean over 5 or 10 years)

    54. Conor

      I wonder where that soda came from

    55. Saitama man

      Mountain dew should sponsor u ma boi u got some moves for a sponsorship

    56. Jake Wells

      Looks like the cows got to sleep in a little extra

    57. Scott Carr

      What brand of rake do you have?

    58. Luke Splettetoesser

      why not use a monkey wrench or adjustable wrench to bend the knifes

    59. Joar Folkestad

      thats a big tractor for that small mower

    60. MrShanester77

      Impressive operation🇺🇸

    61. Doug Williams

      You’ve got a big business. You work everyday?

    62. Edmar Dalago

    64. Suzanne Benz

    65. Dedra Kuhn

    66. SamSpade

      I really miss dairy farming. Your videos bring back great memories from the 1970's & 80's. Thanks Eric. Well done.


      You should get a Milwaukee electric impact wrench they are really handy for changing blades I’ve found

      1. Someguy6571

        Agreed! Much better than busting off nuts with a regular ratchet!

    68. andrew sarles

      We just finished our first cutting over a week ago in Michigan!

    69. Zach T.

      I love seeing the cows use the brushes.


      bro i want to what kind of protin and strnght clacuklting food for a cow

    71. Bhaskar Param

      Wow wow wow

    72. Thomas Rose

      Isn’t that kinda dangerous working on that mower while the tractors running I understand that shutting the tractor on and off while repairing the blades might be a pain but what if the pto somehow engaged and you lost a finger or a arm or worse ?

    73. mark c

      Not sure if the bags are related to it, maybe, but Harvestore solos are notorious for side wall collapses from air pressure drops when lowering the contents

    74. 5x green tv

      them cows have the best life with the brush and all

    75. richard Kizzar

      Waiting for 2nd cutting on my farm

    76. Doc Portland

      Sask is going at it with these vids. Great work... Sask and 10thgen need to do a colab vid. You could do a Zoom colab vid...

    77. PNW RC

      The joys of harvest season on the farm. I DON'T miss the chaos that was harvest time on the farm! I DO miss the farm life, & HATE the city life!

    78. Connor Alcorn

      you should run your equipment a couple of minutes after your done so it last longer

    79. The random AVS fan

      A JD with an electrical issue never could have imagined Lol love ur vids tho

    80. SSA official Ambre

      Dude which types of breed you used for milk ....

    81. Cathy Ellis

      I never knew so much was involved - very amazing!

    82. Lonnie Morgan

      how do you keep your cows from pooping in the milk parlor

    83. Nooce Miller

      Sorry your pump is giving you trouble. Your alfalfa looks great!

    84. Harriet Carpenter

      This question may sound dumb but am curious. How long does it take the machine to milk one 🐄 cow and what is the average amount u get at that time from a cow ? Thank you for ur answer. I appreciate u taking the time to answer me.

    85. flynn Woodhead

      What is your social medias

    86. Ann Mittelstadt

      Do you ever sings to your cows in the field, then they come running to ya?

    87. Janine Gagnon

      “What are ya lookin at?!” 🐄 🐮 ❤️

    88. Dan Finley

    89. Dan Finley

      Man awesome the alfalfa has a dew growing in the field nice 👍

    90. K Fisher

      What do you do if the auger on the blue silos break

    91. K Fisher

      We just finished first crop and ur on second 😮

    92. Marinus Verwey

      So, you mow about 5 times during the summer? Or more?

    93. Whelan_04

      You should have turned off the john deere when checking the mower the driveshaft could have turned on cant trust machines

    94. Patrick Redmond

      Have you ever considered buying your own chopper since you need it quite a bit during the year or does it not work out financially because in Ireland it's pretty expensive to get in contractors

    95. Jagroshan Singh

      Love from🇮🇳

    96. Gunnar Andre

      Hahahaha imagine you’re and SaskDutch kid’s cow’s know their the most popular cow’s of all the cow’s hahaha just me ok
