Ray Bohacz — who runs FarmMachineryDigest.com and is know as the Hotrod Farmer — loves talking about tractors and other farm machinery. He’s been featured lots of digital and print publications (including AGDAILY), and has a long-running podcast called Idle Chatter. He’s soon expanding his reach by being added to the lineup of Rural Radio on Sirius/XM Channel 147.
Each episode of his Farm Machinery Digest show will air at 11 a.m. ET Saturdays, with an encore presentation at 6 p.m. Sunday.
Bohacz says that success on the farm or ranch is a three-legged stool: agronomy (or animal husbandry), marketing, and machinery. Behind that, he launched his site and podcast, which is the only known resource to provide an in-depth look at the technical aspects of the equipment employed in modern production agriculture.
The Idle Chatter podcast has listeners throughout North America and in 67 countries.
Bohacz is a sweet corn grower from New Jersey, a mechanical engineer in the automotive industry, and a technical writer. He has both field dirt and grease under his fingernails. His mantra is, “Agriculture runs on machinery … but profits on reliability.”
Bohacz says he “is humbled to become part of rural America’s most important network and the opportunity that it presents to help prosper those in every aspect of agriculture.”
Rural Radio is owned by The Rural Media Group, which also owns RFD-TV and the Cowboy Channel.
