How Farms Work by Ryan Kuster is a YouTube channel based in rural Potosi, Wisconsin.

Our mission is to teach those who didn’t grow up on a farm what the farming life is like.
These videos show the Kuster family working together raising cattle and crops. We believe everyone who wants to know more about farming should be able to share the farming experience with us and we look to educate the world on many essential agriculture topics.

How Farms Work takes place on ~1,100 acres with around 75-200 cattle at any given time. Four John Deere tractors are currently used on the farm, which are a 4020, 4640, 7600, and 8235R.

Be sure to subscribe for new videos every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday at 11AM Central!

Making Healthy School Lunches Free for All Should Be a National Priority:

Last week, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced plans to lower nutrition standards for the National School Lunch Program and roll them back to pre-Obama era levels. These actions from the Trump administration signal yet again how low of a priority they consider this program—and by extension the millions of children who rely on it […]

Protein involved in nematode stress response identified:

When humans experience stress, their inner turmoil may not be apparent to an outside observer. But many animals deal with stressful circumstances – overcrowded conditions, not enough food – by completely remodeling their bodies. These stress-induced forms, whether they offer a protective covering or more camouflaged coloration, can better withstand the challenge and help the animal survive until conditions improve.
