    The clock is ticking, the ground is warming, and the work list growing. We have much to do before we can begin seeding. Just gotta keep pressing on and in a few weeks we'll look back and say, "wow that wasn't too bad!". So blessed to have another season to farm. Hope you enjoy the video!

    3. Douglas Palmer


    4. Lee Marchant

      I forgot which video your bulk oil pump was in. What was the manufacturer of it if anyone knows?

    5. Cassie Kaptur-Easterwood

      My dog loved the part when you were howling at the dog in the video. Lol I took a video of her, but I can’t upload it😢

    6. WrenchBrewery

      That dog realy likes to run besides you when u drive !

    7. MN. STEEL - Andrew K.

      The tires are probably bias-ply tires & would also make good "bituminous asphalt" with mixing it with class 5 gravel, oil & you have asphalt.

    8. Diamond Heart Ranch

      I have a Flexicoil 5000 and it has a set of two bar harrow right in front on the pack wheels. Problem is it plugs and drags straw there sometimes. Did you guys remove yours. Any trouble with yours like this.

      what does a load od stones go for there

      1. Robert Welker

        Don't know of a market in the area but I'm sure it's rock solid value

    17. Danny I

      Mobile backup camera idea: GoPro on a magnet on the back of the dump truck. Live image preview on the phone. Bam

    18. Mr.Schubi.

      Can you restauraid the 1150 versatile

      1. Robert Welker

        No plans yet

    19. Horse Lake Ranch

      All new equipment I have had come with shitty single braid hoses that only last a few years. Try to keep cost of production down I guess

    20. Glenn Gaul

      Now that's a gang that doesn't sell drugs!

    21. Nick Peterson

      If counted right I didn't realize you guys planted with 3 machines. Must be a lot of acreage.. I like the longer uploads too, thanks for sharing!

      1. Robert Welker

        We have two drills, but at times a third one would be nice.

    22. Flux

      It is so cool to see the machines in real times. Not just in the virtual game

    23. Luke Hofer

      On them doors that u glued that plate back is that a special glue ? I have the same problem tried a quick fix with Qbond and it didn't seem to work???

      1. Robert Welker

        For the mental strip I used Right Stuff. Then rivited it to the doors (screws were corroded).The plastic had adhesive so used heat gun to make sure it contacted.

    24. Ethan Toews

      great video

    25. Wyatt Vos

      Just dug a 8 ft hole and 200 loads of gravels for a 600,000 bushel bin

      1. Robert Welker

        Wow! Thats a lot of bushels.

    26. Lia Edick

    28. Paul Bessiere

      Good Luck for seeding Season 😁 #frenchfarmers

      1. Robert Welker

        Thank you

    29. Rush Hook & Horn Adventures

      Are they going to be manufacturing new Big Bud tractors?

      1. Rush Hook & Horn Adventures

        Robert Welker do you guys have a video or list of all the components you use on your cameras? Like the handle and what not and where you might purchase them?

      2. Rush Hook & Horn Adventures

        Robert Welker well darn that’s a bummer if they do shelve it :( that would be amazing if they would do a new run of big buds! Thanks Mr. Welker

      3. Robert Welker

        Was some interest by Rome Equipment but might be shelved

    30. darengodfrey69

      Hey Nick... When u get to the point of restoration of the Moline... Please get in touch with Welters Farm Supply in Verona, MO... They are one of the largest Minneapolis Moline parts and tractor dealers in the nation... Ask for Glen or Lois

    31. tone the moan

      going to need big guns to defend all that food buddy

    32. Jonathen Sackman

      Get some colored electrical tape, or spray paint and paint each end of the lines on the planter, so when you go to hook them up in the spring after setting all summer and winter, there isnt any guess work when you hook back up in the spring...just my two cents..may God bless each seed you guys plant!

      1. Robert Welker

        Thanks john. We have used colored zip ties.

    33. Michael Parker

      It was so cute when had your pups howling my dog did in the house kinda loud but cute 😁

    34. Bobby Flowers

      I really like the 'farmers first' shirt. Where could I buy one of those? I looked some on internet but didn't find anything remotely close. Thanks and great videos.

      1. Robert Welker

        I believe it's from FBN (farmers business network). Might check their website

    35. duggydo

      I give up guys. I like you, but this choppy editing is unbearable. If you’re paying someone to do this editing, you’re wasting your money. Can’t watch anymore of these.

      1. HouseCarpenter

        @Robert Welker I don't think I would call it unbearable duggy. It is pretty bad though with the hundreds of breaks. I hope not all your videos are like this because other that the bad editing, it is interesting video. I like the farming and mechanic stuff. I subscribed so hopefully the future videos are better quality editing.

      2. Robert Welker

        I agree that sometimes it's chopped. Probably trying to reduce the length of video. But i wish you well and thanks for following this long Blessings

    36. Stephen M

      Flip the wearbar over so the plastic is underneath. The new ones are full aluminum and do not have the nylon strips at all on top. They are the same thickness as the old+strip. Also I made a trapezoid shaped unloader for under the carts to drop seed/fertilizer out of the tanks into the auger without all the mess.... EDIT - Check the clevis ends of the main folding rams, we had one split in half and the wing flopped down. EDIT 2 - Your seed tower tops are worn out, that center hole is supposed to be smaller and have plastic extending downwards more. Not the end of the world but watch for leaks out the bottom as fertilizer getting into the space could cause a blowout. EDIT 3 (lol) - The AFS700 seems to have an issue with calibrating dead zone for autosteer. If your tractor starts oscillating side to side and trying to throw you out of the seat while tracking a line that may be the problem. I've been running a 535HD with a similar issue. It also seems GPS related as there are "dead spots" in the field where it happens.

      1. Robert Welker


    37. L Hawk

      Check if that bearing is wobbling very slightly in the flange block making that noise.

    38. Brody Scrivner

      Gotta get rid of that ugly muffler!!!!

    39. dzlf250

      You know that bearing is gonna go on the farthest part of your field. Lol been there.

    40. Eric Boudle

      Do a shout out to Can Am. You guy's could use a front windshield (real glass), roof, doors, heat etc. Too bad Polaris did not respond. I'm sure that Can Am has the same. Case IH, Deere, Ford, GM etc .... Just a thought... ranger.polaris.com/en-us/ranger-xp-1000-eps-northstar-edition/

    41. tagoooU

      What's all this seeding, planting talk?

      1. Robert Welker

        Light weights running heavy weights 😊

      2. tagoooU

        I thought this was a heavy equipment channel.

    42. BigJim57

      looks to me like can-am should be coming out with a windshield for their side by sides. ha! other than that-great video.

    43. Eric Boudle

      Those Big Bud Cabs remind me of an Air Traffic Controller Tower" at an Airport !!!

      1. Robert Welker


    44. Charley B

      How much does one big bud cost when it was new?

      1. Charley B

        Robert Welker wow that’s some kit

      2. Robert Welker

        1st was 45k in 1971, 2nd 100k in 1978, and 140k in 1980

    45. James LeBlanc

      Needs more engine sounds!

    46. Andreas Olsen

      And here i am in Northern Norway just waiting for the snow to melt and ground to dry up..... Hopefully starting manure spreading soon

    47. Alexander Phillips

      How come you guys don’t grow corn out there? Is based on soil type or the weather and growing season or is it just personal choice.

      1. Robert Welker

        Short growing season and low rainfall

    48. Lee Hipp

      New Holland don't have anything to do with the 200 series skid steer. 270.

      1. Robert Welker

        Now you tell me 😁

    49. Gareth - Part Time Farming

      whats bud's do you have and what do you use for what jobs?

      1. Robert Welker

        We have series 1 (435 hp), 2 (525 hp),and 3 (600). All can pull air drills and the 2 & 3 60ft cultivators

    50. 6th Generation Farmer SD

      we have a mm ub turkish special that was supposed to be exported over to turkey on a boat and we wanted to restore it . we are wondering were you got the parts for you mm u

    51. Luke Gilpin

      15:40 might not be a mouse nest but it looks like a rats nest of eveything going on

      1. Robert Welker

        RATS!!! Actually we don't have them or cockroaches here

    52. Phillip Peterman

      Keep us apprised of the bin build, I for one am looking forward to it.

      1. Robert Welker


    53. Jon D

      That noise in the bearing may be just the weight of that roller hanging on it. That looking roller is probably sagging under it's own weight causing the shaft to be at a slight angle. As its rotating its forcing the bearing to move slightly in its housing, great videos can't wait to see planting!

    54. Mark Walker

      I had to pause the vlog when you were getting the gravel dropped. In the pile of stuff behind you at quick glance looked like there was a train and the top of a space rocket

    55. LSE LLC (Lumanet Solar Energy LLC)

      Back to work Leg Arms.... stop talking ..... get er done

    56. Charles Kawski

      Yeah we and the same problem backing and towing CH-46 helicopters.

    57. Duane Erickson

    59. Wesley Janzen

      1. Robert Welker

        Truth is it was already hard lifestyle before the DB. Barely survived but was able to. Didn't have the dust bowl as bad around here

    60. Hein du preez

      All the best for 2020plant. Hein from south africa.

      1. Robert Welker

    62. Chaudhary Osama

      Which pressure washer doo you use and its pressure?

      1. Chaudhary Osama

        Dose It remove oil and grease properly from tractors or not?

      2. Robert Welker

        I believe its host and up to 4000 psi

    63. Carrie Holthaus

      I think you need a John Deere tractor to match that roller

    64. Caleb Martin

      19:20 Look at leg arms i hope his other eye is open 😂😂

    65. David Firth

      1. David Firth

        @Robert Welker lol is that what you guys call it down there up hear in Alberta we call it maken cookies 😉

      2. Robert Welker

        You mean making the bed?

    66. Kris Kohut

      We get our fertilizer oiled at the dealer, really has helped prevent lumps and eliminates the dust that finds it's way into all the nooks and prevents rust, think the product is called dustrol.

    67. james anderson

      always great videos from the welkers

      1. Welker Farms

        Much appreciated

    68. Mike Paxton

      Keep it up guys, it's going to be an interesting year!!!! No demo drill this year????

      1. Mike Paxton

        @Robert Welker perhaps we need some influencing comments. I know you guys deserve it!

      2. Robert Welker

        Nothing yet but still time

    69. Russ Recker

      Rolling some smoke from the magnum. Pretty cool!

    70. The new Making it Happen

      You need windshields for the new side by side´s.

    71. Chip Kile

      On sealed bearings I always drilled small hole in them and greased them with needle greaser on grease gun then silicone the holes shut last way longer

    72. The new Making it Happen

      You have nice weather anyway.

    73. thomas leonard

      Love my side by side!

    74. Buckmancam Harrington

      Who is driving the 600/50 big bus? Nick or leg arms?!

    75. Steve

      When you really get into the planting videos, here is some music to put an edge to it app.soundstripe.com/artists/383 Swamp Ash by Crack Skippy.

    76. J Bigboy John

      The way you guys work together is super, love the energy and the fact that DAD does not have to holler to get you boys moving! Self Motivation is a wonderful thing. Most of all I love the fact that all of you work hard and give the glory to God for all that you have. Thank you for being men and making no apology!!! Legarms seems to be the all around mechanic and an all around super problem solver and fixer upper!!!! Thumbs Up For Welker Farms

      1. Robert Welker

        Thank you for those kudos! We are humbled at the following but appreciate the opportunity fo represent what we do and give our creator the praise He deserves. Blessings

    77. casy casy

      looks like the first thing you need for the cam-ams are windshields

    78. Matt Huey

      @WelkerFarms Is that Big Bud loud inside the cab? haha it sounds like it would be rough!!👍 but its very pretty!!💯🇺🇲🇺🇲🚜😁

      2. Robert Welker

        No it's quiet enough to talk with someone..... . Forget social distancing.......with yourself

    79. Aunt Janet

      22:40 Sorry, I didn't quite catch the name of the man running the roller. Was it Brad? I think you said Brad. Can you confirm it's Brad? Brad the roller man? If not Brad, than maybe Brad can do it. Brad.

      1. Robert Welker

        Hate to Brad on him but Brad is back. New war movie in development " What about Brad"! Driving a Bradley ve vehicle.

    80. richardj ellis

      Hi lads... Quick question... Why is it not level from last year.?

      1. richardj ellis

        @Robert Welker cheers. I see

      2. Robert Welker

        During the use hinge bushings wear or fail. That effects the levelness

    81. Julius Strüwing

      pls less adds

      1. Julius Strüwing

        @Robert Welker Thanks for answering. In that case i will just have to watch some adds. :)

      2. Robert Welker

        I know. We can't choose the exact ads , just general topics

    82. Oerni Oerni

      Why dont you do a longer crop rotation with barley and canola?

      1. Oerni Oerni

        @Robert Welker Sounds interisting, would be nice to see

      2. Robert Welker

        Looking at canola

    83. Daniel Beirl

      Is that the versetile back there on 21:30?

      1. Daniel Beirl

        Ive seen that but i wasnt sure that it sits there :D

      2. mfreund15448

        Daniel Beirl It has a bad transmission. They bought it for the engine. I think the engine is in one of the Big Buds. They did a video on it a couple of times.

    84. Daniel Peterson

      Send the tires that you get rid of to Vegas to those people making those greenhouses homes they like to make them so that they can save on material energy and make it to the house is heat and cool just perfectly form the fried chicken and a heartbeat they seem to always seem to need some more and they go to landfills and try to grab as many as they can all the time.

    85. Archie Goddard

      You should try to see if you can put the windshields on those Canams. Might reduce the risk of losing hats!

    86. Bigboyjim Gaming

      Was that a dog or a wolf

      1. Robert Welker

        He learned it from me when dinner is late 😁

    87. Daniel M

      Fantastic! Come on CASE IH The Millennial Farmer just got a new demo unit for the year from JD. We want to see the latest and greatest planter you have in the CNH arsenal!

      1. Robert Welker

        We too!

    88. Mike Moore

      Do you have anyway to monitor all of the tubes on your planter so you know your not skipping rows and to ensure that all rows are getting seed?

      1. mfreund15448

        Mike Moore lLooks for the video from last spring about the blockage system.

    89. Michael Taylor

      I just want to give you all 3 credit for how much you've improved in your ability to talk to the camera.

    90. Vance Morgan

      Nick changing cameras,👍better picture quality.

    91. KStater87

      Love the videos, but it's hard to hear you or your dad talk with the background music playing the entire time.

      1. Robert Welker

        Maybe I'm shy and was saving you from being embarrased for me. 😆

    92. redbaron278

      You shouldn’t have to level your drill every year. I have never done mine and it’s a 2003.

      1. Robert Welker

        We have found that bushings, tee brackets, etc developed Larger clearances over time resulting the wings to say. And when replacing them will reverse the direction. So we do it to make sure it's level for the season

    93. Robert Tolliver

      Cant beat a hi-lift jack. Or my dad called them a handyman jack

    94. Raymon Castaneda

      Straight pipe the big bud so we can hear that turbo scream😎

      1. Robert Welker

        I will capture some roaring this spring

      2. fowletm1992

        Cameras don't pick up that hhigh pitch niose well You can here it just fine in person The last thing you want is to.listen to the thing screaming all day Sounds good for the first 2hrs then it gets old real quick The air seeder fan over powers any other niose anyway

    95. 4 spd life

      A buddy of mine is a diesel mechanic and he has some thick rectangular foam knee pads they look like a big thick cutting board and they help so much and save your knees yall should get something like that for the shop and for what let arms was doing

      1. Robert Welker

        We do have them. Use them when changing drill points.

    96. wyatt bonnette

      Glad to see you using Verdesian products. Made right here in Ohio, by the company I work for. Fun stuff. How awesome!! Becareful with that dyed stuff, little drop will go for miles.

      1. Robert Welker

        That's cool. We have had good results with them 👍

    97. phatgandalf

      I love you guy's videos

    98. Feel the steel

      How many acres are going to be planted this year?

      1. Robert Welker


    99. Ron Anderson

      Wow Time to start planting!

      1. Welker Farms

        Oh yes!

    100. lawr46

      I built land rollers for a number of years & have fixed farm equipment for decades, that sound at 22:00 minutes sounds like an outer race walking in the pillow block.

      1. Robert Welker

        Interesting, thanks, Blessings
