Hello,

according to Fred K. Prieberg, it's the Kampflied from 1934 Wir treiben unsre Pferde ins Münsterland hinein by Walter Kröcher.
Kröcher was HJ-Gebietsführer Westfalen.

That's what I recognize by hearing the clip:
  • Wir treiben unsr'e Pferde ins Münsterland hinein,
    im Land der roten Erde liegt heller Feuerschein,
    liegt heller Feuerschein.
    Bauer lass das säen, folg' unserm Aufgebot,
    ...
Best,
F.

An excellent identification, F.

Note that Walter Kröcher wrote the lyrics.

At least two composers composed (different) music for the song: Hans-Christian Witte and Heinz Dreilich.

The march they played before the song in the video is Meissner's "Zum Städtel hinaus!"

Cheers,
Ivan

I might have the music and lyrics in my copy of the Hitler Youth songbook, but I will need to search the bunker.....;)
