    Farmers are actual real life geniuses. They can feed themselves and fix anything. Serious respect.
    First of all, if you need to put together a grain bin, I recommend calling Danny. The man is a genius.
    His email is: dannylef2 at yah00 d0t c0m
    (I've typed his email address like that so webcrawlers won't detect it and spam him. If you're a farmer you're smart enough to figure that out.)

    the thing with farmers is that yeah they have to do allot of diffrent stuff and know the biology,economics,meterology around theyr jobb but they are only focused on the farming aspect of those things so they are not good biologists or good economists they are good farmers who masterd theyr proffesion.

    Regarding moisture to weight sales.. he didn't describe it properly. Every dropoff location for trucks has a moisture sensor.. they pay you on the factor of moisture and weight to calculate beans. You don't get paid more for 14% beans over 12% beans.. its calculated on site and you are paid for that calculated weight/moisture level.

    Folks: Displaced Southerners have problems dealing with people who just don't understand. When they get around and talk to someone who is a Southerner, things just relax and it all comes out right. Y'all call it a Southern accent, it just sounds Right to me. Now when he slows it down and saying a one syllable word takes three beats - he's just milking it!

    Wow. I've always been proud to tell someone (if the subject came up and it was appropriate) that I come from farm stock. That's because I am proud of my people. I know its hard work, takes character that would baffle most MBA's (sorry folks) and is a 24/7/365 job. No days off. No hours off either - when there's a need, you respond. So it takes a passion - a love - of what a farmer does. Watching this, I find myself proud of them for a whole different reason. Thanks!
