Farmers earn more from YouTube than their crops

I like the 20T log splitter that’s been on demo,and won’t be bought,but will be carried on being used until it’s picked up by the dealer 🤦‍♂️😂
I guess the dealers are getting free publicity.TNS will no doubt be loaning the Massey and Does lent him the New Holland to use.expect to see another Manitou on demo from TNS again,Hilux on demo from the useless SLM Toyota who continue to ignore me ,it just goes on and on.I’m sure if he did not have a youtube channel he would have zero chance of getting anything on demo.

Johnny was great think he changed job didn’t he from driving the puma and 1050? And think he was having family issues illnesses? Such a shame as he came across like a tidy humble bloke
Can't quite remember, to be honest. Just remember he took a break from Youtube, returned for a few videos, then stopped altogether. Like you said, it's a shame because he came across as a genuinely humble, and likeable guy. Plus his enthusiasm for the work he was doing was infectious.
Hopefully all is fine and well with Johnny, whatever he's doing now.

JM Farming is a good watch, the complete opposite to farmer Phil, massively over staffed suckler cow and sheep farm (i think they said 500 acres with 4 farm staff, secretary and manager!) and immaculate research farm (very unlike mine). They have a full time shepherd on 500 ewes and he doesn't even feed them!

Shame he spent the entire video circa 15 minutes telling us it's 'amazing' but hasn't actually used it yet!
First one I've watched to be fair but not particularly impressed.
I get a bit annoyed about him going on about how much he loves his cow brushes, how much could you possibly love a cow brush. But I guess that why it’s free to watch these videos.

I would think he had a very good deal on those brushes and the crush not to mention the odd goody bag from Kramp. But with over 400 thousand subscribers on his you tube channel that's advertising for you. These manufacturers are moving beyond buying half a page in the farmers weekly for six weeks.
I'm not knocking Tom Pemberton in anyway. I think he's a very good ambassador for our industry. The video where he had to put the bull down shows that farming isn't always new and shiny.

This video is badly off-piste from YouTube farming but woowww, it really shows how much influence some of these influencers can really have.

Kim K has 250million social media followers and nearly 19% of her followers engaged and bought the crypto coin she was promoting.. she is being sued for "allegedly" scamming her followers, the crypto coin was a pure scam.


To bring it back to agriculture is it any wonder why these agri companies are so keen to work with farming social media influencers, all they need is that tiny % of engagement to make it pay.

I have never used a crush or seen one in the flesh and found it to be very informative. Very impressed with how thought it it seemef.
Just sayin'.
Yes, it just looked like a 15 minute promo that's all. All fine and dandy for arrowquip I guess. 5 minutes would have piqued your interest then you could have visited arrowquips website where they should have there own film explaining it.

Then negotiate the 20k for buying one I imagine!
