I walk my calf twice a day. This gives him plenty of exercise and helps build his muscle mass. It also helps establish my authority over him. While walking him I can teach him how to stand for show and what I expect him to do during shows.
Once the noodles lay on the table for about 15-20 minutes, we have to cut the noodles into 6-8 squares. Once we have a pile of squares, one person cranks the handle and another puts the squares into the grinder. This is another example of a similar noodle cutter that I bought, since my Amish friends moved away. This example picture is showing the actual cutting of the noodles. This is the size of noodles that I usually make, but I can make them into a thicker size of noodles with the machine.
Here is where i cut most of my wood. I drag the wood to this location so i can choose if the wood needs a chain saw or an ax. The longer and lengthy the wood the more likely i am to use an ax. This saves ware and tear on the chain saw.

Here is where i stack my wood when it is all cut up. It is located under a tree house to keep it dry. If the logs are to big for and ax ill use my chain saw to make the process go faster. The sizes of the wood shown vary because of the different methods of cutting.

In the spring when the ground has thawed out is the time when you prepare the field for planting. Here I am plowing the field with the tractor. You must use the disc to flip the dirt.
Having a clean pen is the key to clean, happy, and healthy animals. I spot clean my calves pen every other day and clean out the entire pen once a week. Having a clean pen helps to ward disease, and happy cows.
After the dough is cut into 5-6 pieces out of the oval shaped finished dough, we roll the dough through the crank to flatten the pieces out. The pieces of dough need to be flattened twice until they are about 4 feet long.  I bought a noodle cutter like the one shown in this picture. It was necessary for my business to strive since I could no longer use this one and it is a huge asset to my business. I can make smaller or larger cuts of noodles with this machine, as well as flattens them as shown
the longer and Skinner the wood the easier it is to ax. It takes a lot of effort to swing a ax hard enough to cut wood. A chain saw is more elective however it is more costly. I stack the axed wood in a different location because that are easier to stack.
At the time this picture was taken I was feeding my calf five scoops a day. At the end of the project I was up to feeding my calf eight scoops a day.

Here I am watching the equipment to see if there are any problems that I would have to fix.
Once the egg yolks and the egg whites are separated from each other, the 9 dozen egg yolks get mixed with a little bit of water and about 7 pounds of flour. The long, exhausting mixing of the sticky, thick dough starts and we have to switch stirrers almost every 5 minutes. There
