Credit to Laura and Grant for putting light on this tragic loss. I can’t imagine the stress. At least there were no injuries. I am not a farmer but live in a semi-rural area in NY. Farms all around. Hope my small contribution helps.
Discussing the value of farm equipment is not bragging. 99.9% of people have zero knowledge of farming, the cost, the work required, and the risk. I worked on a farm in my teenage years and I learned alot. I wish everyone could have a better understanding of it all. I think your channel is helping greatly in that respect
I grew up on my grandpa’s and uncle’s farm in Illinois and even though I have been away from what I consider my true passion for more than 50 years now, I will never forget how EVERYONE would come to the aid of a fellow farmer when bad things happened. I have been subscribed to your channel a couple of months now (since I found you) and I really appreciate what you are doing to share what being a farmer really is! I’ve done what little I could to help MIke and that is only possible because you shared his story and from the memories I cherish of my family’s farms and living with the principles learned to help each other in so many ways. Those principles have guided my life even though I am literally thousands of miles from the farms I grew up on and loved so much.
