About the Video

Tom Yuhasz was 12 years old when his dad gave him the use of a tractor. It was the beginning. His dad gave him a ten acre field and he planted and picked corn.

Today, he is still farming in the family business. He and his brother own Yuhasz Brothers, LLC and Colebrook Elevators in Orwell and employ about 20 people.

They start with spring planting and then monitor the crop during growing season. They hope the weather has the right combination of rain, sunshine and dry periods.

Depending on the time of year, he uses a variety of equipment. Studying the land and the plantings around you are helpful in deciding which crops to plant and how to care for them.

Knowledge of science also helps the farmer know what to plant and how to take care of it. Knowledge of math helps a farmer know how to make a profit from the land and is an important skill a student should have.
