Minnesota Farmer


Young McDonald

Many in our country complain about the large farms and, to them, questionable technology that is used on today’s farms.  The truth is that we no longer live in “Old McDonald’s” world.  In an effort to produce more food using fewer inputs, Old McDonald and his son have adopted the technology that makes the rest of the world run.  So instead of Old McDonald, I offer you here the words to a new farm song,  Young McDonald.

And on their farm they use a lot of technology, E I E I O

With at smart phone here and a computer there, here and iPad, there some GMO’S, everywhere there’s new technology,

Figuring rate of gain here and days to market there, watch the weather, watch the market, computers are helping everywhere,

With a hash tag here and a photo there, call the seeds man, call the feed man, and what’s the latest on the weather forecast,

With a turn left here and a turn right here, keep that planter moving straight and increasing efficiency of that tractor,

With use less fuel here and use less herbicide there, they’re producing more with less on their farm everywhere,
