Zach Johnson, the “Millennial Farmer” is a 5th-generation farmer who’s spent his life growing, working, and learning on his family’s farm. His wit and dry sense of humor appeal to children and adults alike. A product of the millennial generation, his appreciation of new technology blends with his old-fashioned work ethic, and he offers a unique ability to deliver his message in a way that resonates with lifelong farmers as well as those with no knowledge of agriculture.
With growing consumer awareness about where their food comes from, Zach has identified the need for an independent voice from the front lines of agriculture. Zach actively promotes agriculture by sharing his day-to-day experiences in the agriculture world while providing farmer-to-farmer education to help facilitate a collaborative conversation between farmers and the public.

We had a bale wagon for many years. It’s wasn’t self propelled but it sure beat picking it up by hand. That’s what you buy when your a one man show.

You're feeding glyphosate treated soil/product to your customer's horses/family members. Are you telling your customer base you are using RoundUp? The horse owners in my family would be none to happy to learn that the feed/soil was ever touched by glyphosate.

my apologies mate I accidentally posted that comment without actually finishing it first (was half asleep (working graveyard)) but no offense intended. I can completely understand how that came off as being an asshat but I've since edited my comment and posted it in it's (intended) entirety so maybe now you'll see I'm on your side! What I get for YouTubing and falling asleep thus my apologies! That's some sick JD equipment though...wish I had started on something bigger than a JD4300

At ten my dad told me to hook up the plow to the tractor and start spring plowing, 5 hours later he came over and said 11:30 at night, time to go to the house and get cleaned up for bed. I had been running the old 4000 Ford baling hay while he stacked the wagon since I was 7.

I used to irrigate at my grandpas ranch, those were long all night shifts. Minimum 12 hours. In Northern California we call the port holes, takeouts, and the area between the borders we call checks checks.

This video brings back so many good memories for me. Running in the ditches as a kid. Taking my shift on the swather with my dad and brother, as we would run it around the clock until the all the hay was cut. Then, when the hay was ready, my uncle would wake me early to join him, another uncle and my grandpa to bale while the dew was on. Really great memories. Thanks for sharing this video. Onyx is a blessed young man.

It is good to see a young person learning. There seem to be a big difference between baling hay and putting up hay. Baling is a lot of tractor riding. Putting up hay is dust, sweat and hard work. Of course that was the 1950's.

Adding moisture sounds strange to this Aussie, especially after seeing heat and moisture destroy hay bales (Centre of the bales turned to a fine white ash) and told of a barn fire that start because of moisture in the hay. Love the mini kenworth as a forklift, I've never seen anything like it before

Wow Buckeye AZ. When I drove L.A. to Dallas twice a week we would jump off I-10 at Buckeye and take highway 85 down to Gila Bend and then catch I-8. We did that to miss all the traffic in Phoenix. It always looked like a nice, small town and over the years it started to really build up with Walmarts etc

The dairy and feedlot industry around here feeds tremendous quantities of hay. Hay is brought in from hundreds of miles to satisfy the need. Almost all large bales. Small bales are very expensive because of the labor shortage. Onyx could spend summers here and make college .funds in short order!

I was so little when I started running the bailer. I had to stand my entire body on the clutch to stop the tractor and my dad would take it out of gear. Probably not the safest, but that’s being a farm kid. They get what ever work out of you they can ASAP. Wouldn’t have it any other way!

It would be great to see if he was actually driving like an old 3000 Ford, 35 Ferguson, whatever number John Deere and pulling a baler not an automated machine that stacks and loads etc. Its cool he gets to drive but... im just let down.

I started driving a tractor the day I graduated 3’rd grade. The next day I started plowing the fields. That was in 1969. Things were different back then, I don’t know if farmers start their kids working the fields that early these days.

Their idea of "running a baler" is a lot different than when I worked for farms as a teenager 45 years ago. Trailers had to be hand stacked, then hand loaded onto the conveyor to the barn loft, then hand stacked again in the loft. Farmers paid by the bail, so they maxed out the bales and used wire to bind them instead of twine - straw bales went about 95-105lbs, hay as much as 135-140lbs. This usually in 90* heat, wearing flannel long sleeved shirts to keep from getting scratched raw. Weren't any 10 year olds in a field then.

Yep..............I STILL love field trip days! It was neat to see the Bales operation. I'd never seen such a large scale hay operation before this. We grew up in a farming community, so I've seen 100 acres fields of hay being harvested, but never on the scale these folks are at!
