Storms Approach ⛈ - Corn Planting

Show Video

Rocket. That's. Lightning so I'm afraid he took off to somewhere. Well. We. Got a thunderstorm but, it, was short-lived even. The ground here is still pretty dry so I'm, gonna, head over to the farm and gonna. Keep rolling. Hey. Since. We were right on the edge of the storm. The, main farms got rained out a little bit which, it is drying up, but. Some, of the further farms, didn't. Get any rain so I'm heading up there with 82, I'm, gonna start V teaming up there and keep. On cleaning they're, calling for rain again and one o'clock this afternoon which. Really. Doesn't give us all that much time but the more we can get planted better so end, up there. I remember. Those six roadies. That, guy remember the four road days. So. This is one of the fields that we're taking out of contours, it's all going into corn. Basically. I'm just gonna start doing laps around the farm and work my way in work so. Let's go ahead and get started. So, I am, about, 60. To, 70% done with this farm. Using. The auto track right now to set. Up some lions I'm doing skip passes with this and, then, I'm just going in between them because. This thing only has 15 hours of demo auto track on it. But, they're calling for rain at, 11 p.m. now they pushed it back two. Hours, every. Second counts in that regard so hopefully. Gonna get this done, fairly. Soon this is the first time I've ever done this entire farm in one go before what. I'm actually doing here is, I'm. Not following contours, I'm, trying to get this done as fast as I can, and by following the contours, you're doing a lot of turning around so, to save on time I'm picking passes, that are relatively long and, then I'm going perpendicular. Most. Of the time to the contours, so. We, might be able to see you there maybe not maybe bounce around too much but. I'm, taking long passes, that. Way I'm. Maintaining, speed going, faster, and. Hopefully, getting a little bit more done. Starting. To rain. You know the older I get the more I'm starting to realize how grandpa, used to just sit in the tractor all day long with, the radio off. And, we're all done here I'm. Gonna pack up and head to the next it. Is currently, 650. Kids. He's. Laying next to me. The. Heck are you doing. Rough. Day huh. Pretty. Well had it. Come. On rocket let's go. After. You my lady. My. Sir. Come. On. Let's. Go. Good. Boy. What. You give me. Thank. You. I. Am. Headed to the. Last two fields, that need to, grip the seabed on actually. We got about a hundred and eighty acres at this point. 8:30, at night. Forecast. Is calling for storms, starting at 2:00 a.m. now they've been pushing it back gradually. As the day's going on.

I'm Thinking that if we can, skin by 2 a.m. and not getting rain but ever been done. Really, starts, to well. This guy really starts to fall tomorrow. And that is what it's supposed to start raining and it's not going to stop. That, would be optimal. I know, that there's going to be a lot of guys out there that are. But. We've been running for. About 60 hours straight now. Something like that. And finish. To get this mark no. You nice to be able to say that we got everything in the ground in these. It's time to finish what I started, so. This is had all day to dry out because we did get rain this. Morning but it's, just why I'm glad I quit because at. The time that I did because I got a little bit of sleep and. It didn't rain up the other farm so I went up there and did that instead and. Now this should be good to go what I, think. It was - money but I saw people planning, in this area this. Morning and I. Don't know how they didn't keep plugging. Their planners because, we. That's an issue that we've been dealing with this. Which is too wet but. Judging. From what it looks like now, this. Can go home. Let's, have a look at the weather while the bt's falling, out. So it looks like overnight they're not calling for any rain, now. That's, good. Um. Okay, so looks, like right now earlier. They were calling for a at 1:00 a.m., allegedly. Got it. Originally, it was like at 9:00, p.m. but they shoved it foul. We, can't push it back by about one hour every, three hours throughout, today and now they just completely canceled all the. All the rain until 8. A.m. tomorrow. And is first you're gonna rain tomorrow and looking. At the large extended. Forecast, here's. What we're looking at. So, this is always, you. Know it's possible it's going to change but. We'll. Have a lot better peace of mind knowing. That all of our crop is in the ground because it took, last. Time it took seven days and this last time it took like eight or nine days for it to dry up enough to, where we could actually get out there and start planting again so if we get more rain. It, keeps pushing us back. And it would be June by the time we get. Into the fields and, by then we're starting to see a yield loss so it's never good. With, that I'm, gonna go ahead and get started we, got two fields left it's roughly 80 acres to. See some lightning over there but, hopefully. The worst of that has passed us until tomorrow morning let's. Get started. Trying, to get my bearings this is my first time, on. This field. Uh-oh. Holy crap. Oh, boy. That hurt. Alright, well, the reason that hopped out of the tractor was. Trying to find rocket. Mom. Just dropped a battery off for me and I. Left. The door open on the tractor, oh.

Wow. Huge. Cramps my foot now. Rocket. Rocket. Is, deathly. Afraid of lightning and thunder I don't. Know if you can see that too well but. It is flashing. Pretty good over there well. A rocket, can sense a thunderstorm, from, literally. Like a hundred miles away and. It's. Just highly unusual that he hopped out of the tractor like that especially when it's storming like this so I'm kind of worried that, he's. Gonna run off somewhere I don't know what the. Last mom took him I'm waiting for her response right now. Whoo. That really hurt. Yep. That's lightning so I'm afraid he took off to somewhere. Rocket. Well, there's not much I can do. Mom. Said she'll call him when she comes back. He's. A smart dog he'll figure it out. Wait, a second. Are. You kidding me dog I. Was. Out there worried sick and you're, here hiding behind the tractor. Seat. I drove. A hundred feet. Without. Even knowing he was in here I figured if, he was outside if he was like taking a leak or something he'd follow alongside the tractor but he. Never came. Lightning. Does, this to him he freaks out it's. His biggest fear. Its. Matter rocket. It's. A matter. Thunder. Gonna get you. Hmm. Thunder. Gonna get you. This matter. Market. Come, on, you. Can't sit back there bouncing. To death. Wonder. Of it, come. On, big. Bad lightning gonna get you. Stuck. Back there. And, I can slide the seat cord about. That. Come, on here you go. You. Got her come on out. Of there. Come, on. There you go. So. Now it is currently 2:10. A.m. and, I. Just, finished, this. Second. Last field. So. I think I'm pretty well going to call our quits. For tonight I'm. Getting down low. On fuel. Not, too terribly low I've. Got another 20 acres which I think I could do. I think. The, fuel gauge went down pretty quick in. The last hour, but. Anyway. I'm Way ahead of the planner I didn't, really have to do as much as I did. Travis net traps, net quit a little earlier tonight. I kept, going I wanted to get this one done so I started it and then. We'll, just see what the weather does. Get, back into the field relatively, early. Right. Now they're, calling for rain at. 9, 5. A.m. and. There's. An 8%, chance so, it's going to storm tomorrow but, I'm said to wait and see how, long it takes for everything to drive back out again. My biggest concern is that we aren't going to be able to get, the. Crops in by the end of the month. Which, is looking like it, could happen but. Dad's. I think, dad's probably sitting around like 90% planted. I'm, not totally sure how much they got done really quit and Travis. And I I think are, sitting somewhere around 30%. So. Not, too bad but. We'll. Just have to write, it out and see how things go, so. I'm gonna go ahead and pack up the BT head back to the farm and, color. Quits for a night so, with that thanks, for watching this video guys be sure to check out all of our other ones be sure to LIKE comment and subscribe and, if.

Ryan is rocket alright and he will be fine

Hey Ryan, nice Job on all 3 of your Corn Planting Videos. Where's Jamie been lately.

Well, you just pissed off all those anti American democrats with that us flag in the corner, lol, I love it.

Hi Ryan are you still going out with Jamie

Ryan, I remember the two-row cultivator days on an "A' John Deere & a 3-row disc pulled by a "G" John Deere on my Grandpa's farm. I was so glad you found Rocket. That scared me for him!

The "having the radio off" - yeah I have been driving without the radio on for a while now!

@19:00 As Ryan was getting in the tractor I thought to myself - Did you check behind the seat. I bet he is behind there. - I laughed out loud when he looked behind the seat and sure enough there Rocket is.

When u wish I implemented no till. The rush sometimes is just overwhelming

Great Video as always Ryan, keep them coming!!

What happened to Jamie

Wow, a lot of lightnings and it's not even sped up. EVERY PLOW THE WRONG FARM? :D

Glad rocket didn’t run off and thanks for the video

Revelation 13:16-18 King James Version (KJV) 16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Revelation 14:9-12 King James Version (KJV) 9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. 12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

13:58 - What music is that? I love it. This is an awesome video all the way around. ETA: I tried watching on the tv and asked xfinity what song it was, but it didn't recognize it.

It’s not about how fast you plant it’s how well you plant fast...great video!

New film genre, farm opera. Beautiful night shots. Music selection really fit. Poor Rocket!

My dog is the same way as Rocket. She freaks and hides under my computer desk with her body pressed against me and howls if i get up and move.

So for all those watching you've seen the hours of farmer puts in. Now let's remember he still has cattle to tend with back on the farm. God created Farmers to look after the Earth

How come you don't have ILS on your 8R

Which accuracy level is the auto steer demo at? SF2?


Great video

Is that corn for silage

I like the music on here

Ryan, FWIW, we had a lab puppy with the same issue . I took her outside on the porch and sat with and comforted her during a T-storm and the issue went away . We would periodically repeatds the exercise . She became quite comfortable with T-storms !

2 things, first I am glad I am not the only one that likes tuna and pickles, next time add bacon to it. soooo good lol  Second my border collie does exactly what rocket does when it storms, she goes running for cover. lol

It’s hard to watch a guy work ground right up and down the hill to “save time”

Not optimal by any means, but we narrowly got all the crops in on time.

poor rocket stuffing himself behind the seat my dog trucker used to do the same thing but only when it started raining

You weren't a bad boy in school were you? I see you can draw pretty straight lines in the field Ryan. Cool video I like that disc, Look like it does a nice job.

do you have all of your corn and soybeans in?

doggie love:)

Great video. Liked the music

Great visuals and camera angles Ryan

Bless him.

Silly Rocket

Music was great

Ryan I remember the two row days.

Awesome drone footage like it

In the fields that you're taking out of contours do you think you'll see an more erosion or do you think it will be negligible there?

Possibly more, but we’ll have to see. Hasn’t had a noticeable difference yet and we’ve had a few drenchers since planting

A man’s love for his dog

Ryan -- American Farmer and Agricultural Cinematographer

Awesome awesome drone footage. Thank you. Glad Rocket was safe as well.

The last three videos have been brilliant and show the hard work that goes into farming.,the way you talk to rocket is probably the best think I have seen in an age he is like a bold child and your best friend.

At least your trying your hardest to get your crops in! It hurts seeing our farmers here in the States and overseas struggling to get their crops in! Hang in there, Ryan! Glad you guys found Rocket safe and sound! Poor guy! I had been afraid of T-Storms growing up! Now I've come to love them! Except the huge cracking thunder boomers! All cats and dogs are so much more sensitive to higher frequencies then we are! Amazing aerial views to!

I saw this on a farm shirt once. It said, " I don't stop when I'm tired. I stop when I'm DONE." I can tell that applies here ;). Love your vids Ryan!!

I think that was the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. Rocket scared behind the seet

Rocket is such a cool puppy

Loved the video, awsome job Ryan.

Great video as always Ryan! you are the master editor.

Hello, these 3 video are top !! You are free on this job ans if you work hard , you can win money. In France , farmers aren't love by french society. They are guilty for all problems !!

Love the Hell out of your music choices Ryan! Top notch!

He needs one of those thunder shirt things

Yummy! Love pickles in my tuna sandwich.

What weather app do you use on your phone?

The app is The Weather Channel

I knew another dog (ginger) who also was deathly afraid of thunderstorms... she would hide in the closet!

Somebody teach me here? Does Ryan's drone have a setting that if he is flying it around the tractor and needs to steer immediately will it home in to the tractor and fly there until he takes over the controls and flys it manually? Don't know anything about drones!

good luck

Do you seed GMO-Corn?

I really love your videos. They are really good and interesting. And i am from Serbian and here we do things much differently. My dream is to be an american farmer. But that will probably just stay a dream. I would really love if i could talk to you and see how it is to be an american farmer.

Poor Rocket :(

Great video and love your "Murica" flag wave...

The drone footage at night time with the lightning was possibly the best footage I've seen in a while. Great job with the drone bud. You're making some great footage lately.

Hello Ryan , that really cool picture of the lighting in the back ground , so glad you found rockett Kind of funny about were he hid at my ausie used to go in the bath tube so i can relate glad he is all right take care

what is the music in 14:00 ?? so sick shot with the lightning


Tuna and pickles? I guess anything taste good when you are in the tractor all day.

Will there be a How farms work map on FS19? :)

Poor Rocket went Full Nope Mode on you. I had a dog who did the same thing. There was just no comforting him.

My dog barks at the thunder and lighting she will literally run out side and bark her butt off at the sky

ever thought that the grips on the steps might hurt rockets feet

Lol rocket was behind the seat the hole time

You r doing good Ryan on fs19 I am doing same thing getting stuff done before a rain storm

Gotta shut down when the star goes missing! Lol

Our golden retriever is exactly the same with storms.

hey ryan we put rug on steps of the tractors for the dogs we have had some dogs get there paws hurt coming off the tractors

I haven't seen your dad all spring it seems like

@Dwight Kuster I know I saw you I just didn't word it right haha

I was running the planter in this vid.

How do you determine whether to use contours or not? Another question is about how fast you're moving with the VT. I've always heard, needs to be over 6 mph and faster is better? Does look like it's doing a good job for you.

Sweet video trying to get my videos up to your quality on my Michigan farming channel

I'm really getting a feeling of the rhythm of farming watching your channel... hard paced when the weather is dictating your plan... which is often.... the Harmless Farmers channel had footage of a just planted yesterday field that was now a lake... farmers are on my prayer list.. thanks Ryan for videoing even when it's adding to the toil .

My dog is the same way

Dumb question, how much work is required to establish those Contours?

Quite a bit. It's easier with today's technology, but we have them already laid out in the GPS so we could easily go back to them if we wanted.

I love rocket had a lab that was the same why love them

Are you guys passed your insurance dead line so your crops are covered? I love to sit in the tractor with the radio off and just go and get away from everything piece and quiet and no one to bother you and just plow disk or plant.

@How Farms Work that's good to hear

We finished in time thankfully, but it would've been close!

Amazing video at night!

Hey Ryan do you think after planting is done , you can do some more loaner equipment demo's

Poor rocket

Great video and impressive drone video at night in particular!

Great vid Ryan thanks for taking us along...

@How Farms Work your welcome Ryan..

Thanks for watching Kevin!

So how come u guys are taking land out of contours?

@How Farms Work thats understandable we wish we had that rain up here in Saskatchewan Canada been a bad drought so far for 3 years. Last i head they were broadcasting we might have serious cropfailure if there is no rain

To save time. If we hadn't we wouldn't have had the crops in on time. We can still go back to them if we want in the future as we've laid them out in the GPS.

I love the little bonus information you are adding to your video lately. Also, my dog also hide in the most impossible places when there is a storm. Poor little thing!

I think a lot of dogs are afraid of thunder and lightning. You need to get him one of those thunder vests or something that is tight around his chest. It makes them feel safe and calms them down. Love the night shots and glad to see you guys getting everything in the ground. Keep the videos coming please. I look forward to all of your new videos.

Nice vid you are the best youtuber like if agreed

I hate it when farmers get in the way when your trying to get some where

Darn farmers! Wait...

@Michael C Just a joke i farmed for 30 years dont mind driving behind a farmer

Hope you are joking about that comment

Any of your corn get sold to Mexico?

It gets sent down the river, so it's very likely.

Tuna with pickles?!?!!?!?!?!!,


Wonderful video.. way to go

Your music choice has been on top. Reminds me of the music from the Smokies in East Tenn as a kid. Soothing, no stress music.

yah I'd say Rocket was Definately tryin to get the heck away from the lightning, crawling into the deepest protection he could find, soo far behind ur seat you can't see him, Dang, That's Crazy

Our Golden Retriever was the same way. Thunder and Lighten would totally freak her out.

Awesome video

I live in Wisconsin and planting season is going good because we have not got any rain in about 2 week or so

How will you unload big red at harvest. At the dryer or wet tank with the belly doors and no pit

Great video!!!

I fancy a subway now

I know a lot of farmers who have "tractor back" from constantly turning around to see how the implements are doing. How is your back?

I remember the 4 row days like it was just last week, oh wait a minute it was just last week! I help out a friend and he still has a 4 row planter mainly because he’s organic and we’d have to replace all of our cultivators if we switched to a 6 and we only usually plant 75-100 acres of corn and beans

Love it!!

My heart sank when you started calling for Rocket. Then jumped for joy when you found him in the cab :)

Awesome video and is Rocket our dog?

Where can I find the music? It's pretty rare to have such hype on a simple back-beat!!

lightning really crosses the wires in their brains so they can not think rationally

Farming America, this is not a Govt job folks, farm on

My dog is the same way. I give him Hemp treats... by the time the storm hits he’s usually so stoned he could care a less if lightning and tornadoes hit dead center in the living room.

what do you use to edit with

What is the name of the music in the video?

How wide is that VT, we are looking at getting one seeing at how well it performs on your ground ours is similar and are looking a for a VT that also performs well in chisel plowed ground

Another great video!

+ #34043x0019x0611=2128

Wheres the baskets on one of your sides? it just looks wierd without it

another satisfied viewer keep it up ryan!

Very beautiful video with the lightning and the city in the background and the tractor the lights on in the foreground. Just love your video.Thank you for sharing your amazing video. God bless you and your family


That part with rocket was so funny and cute lol. Just lettting u know I love watching your videos and I accually live/work on a farm to my ig is jed fogal if u wanna see pics @howfarmswork

Your right, great music.

If you don’t mind what Is the name of the song

I like this hat game, it's making me look and realize how many videos I've been too busy to watch.

What's the song at 4:01?

Those night videos are awesome!!! Keep up the hard work bud!!

What song is that as 14:00
