Adam Krause – November 2021
Adam talks about farming with his family and raising pigs. He also takes us for a ride in the tractor and grain cart during corn harvest.
Discussion Topic: Name products in your school or home that have corn in it? Teachers can find answers here: https://www.iowacorn.org/education/corn-its-everything
Teacher Resource: This link has a very good visual of how a combine works.
Questions: Adam showed us the scale monitor in the tractor cab which showed about 23,000 pounds of corn in the grain cart. Most farmers measure corn grain in bushels. If each bushel of corn weighs 56 pounds, how many bushels of corn were in the grain cart?
