Saying Goodbye To An Old Friend

Today I had to say goodbye to a piece of my childhood, our old combine. This was a bittersweet moment. In today's episode we also loaded corn, plugged a pipe on a grain bin, and I share our main farm research resource. Thank you for watching!

    Cole it looks like a lot of fun working on the farm. I'm glad you explain what you do on the farm. I have never worked on a farm so I don't know what you do on a farm. I and from Illinois and I miss the snow because now I live in Florida. It's been awhile since I've seen snow and I kind of miss it. I wish I was there to help you but I'm 61 years old so I don't know what I could do to help at that age. But I do get a lot of enjoyment out of watching you guys and your whole family. God bless you all and stay safe

    if she was waiting on jeans to dry then its im[ossible they were aired properly before she was to wear them. Thats how you get colds or ill. Buy a second pair and make sure all washed clothes are "aired'. She is young, so if she dont understand Im sure there is a mother or two out there with experience that will explain it to her.

    Cole, for those of you farmers that lose the desire to work the land, I have story; I'm a plumber, so don't get excited (like I do) because there is plumbing in this story. You probably think I am a long winded old windbag already, so I'll jump to the bottom line. For twenty five years of my construction career worked for one man, followed him through two companies and then worked for him when he had his own. Alan was born on a horse farm- really a husbandry farm, to be honest. He grew up in a world of tractors and trailers and cradle machines that would hold a brahma bull secure will you ran an inspection up his hoo ha. He had a fascination with flying and that became his hobby. By now you are champing at the bit saying where the heck is the plumbing, aside form the brahma bull's problem- I'll get there! When his grandfather died the husbandry operation had too much debt so to the auction it went- Alan went to work for a steel construtor company that made railroad tank cars and red iron steel kits for the bare steel erection of big buildings.By the age of twenty five, he was junior to only a few in the plants where he worked. Now to the plumbing! He was "headhunted" by a large motel/hotel corporation to provide a national assist base for their hotels. When they went bankrupt four years later, Alan came to Texas to run a construction company; at thirty three he had several very difficult to get certifications in hospital service and maintenance, welding certificates, electrician's license he had it all and already the seasoning to be a great boss. That is where I met him and went to work as a licensed plumber with in that company. Well on day I came in to work and Alan says "I don't really need any more plumbers today, but I need an AC man", to which I answered, "Alan, I don't know beans about AC" I could probably fake my way through assembling one but....Aln, sly dog that he was, said " Nothing to it! Here use my guages and special tools , and call me when you get confused" that was the beginning of my real education at construction- for the next twenty plus years, I learned something new about every other day, some times two new things in one day. I learned more, became better at what I was already good at and enjoyed most every day I worked for and with him, He was a farm kid, no college, no fancy education, just about three tones of common sense and a natural engineer- as he put it, exactly what a successful farmer needs to be. On the way to that he bought up of leased out over 4000 acres and managed it "part time" with his father in law for a partner. I worked there sometimes after he got his own out fit- and I had to learn about some new things again! And that is my story- probably not as much plumbing as you were expecting but that is how it goes with plumbing stories. And to start and at heart he was just a farmer! Big title if you ask me!

    Thank you Cole for sharing the information for Beck's Practical Farm Research. Your understanding is spot on that a cornerstone for the beginning of validity of a study comes from the research being conducted by an unbiased, neutral 3rd party with credentials in the field. (Other thing you mentioned, large sample size, is pretty important also.) Even if the research is conducted by a 3rd party, knowing who funds that study is also key to gauge impartiality. I am a high school science teacher and I try to incorporate within the curriculum I teach the essentials of being a critical consumer of information. I ordered my T-shirt and packet and I look forward to peruse the packet and look at the methodology and outcomes of the proven ROI practices. For the record, yes, I am a nerdy geek that likes to look at data and statistics.

It's not just about the machine itself, it is about the experiences you shared with others while using it. Losing a Dad is hard. All those memories with him and that combine must be swimming through your mind now. This new combine will give you new memories with new grandchildren maybe? certainly new memories with those boys of yours.

    Cole and Daddy Cornstar are a bad influence on me. I've never looked forward to watching any episode, of any TV programme or NLcameras video in my life until now! Very entertaining, and informative at times. I was a herdsman on dairy farms, over here in the UK, for more than 25 years. I'm experianced in arable farming too. So find Cole's videos highly entertaining. They're just great people and deserve much success. God bless you all.
