Brushing your hogs is a good way to insure that they look their best. Grooming is very important, especially when it comes to show time. It is always a good idea to keep your hogs clean of manure. Without manure on them, insects wont be as pron to bit your animals.

also stacking hay.
In this picture I am planting my onion plants and making sure that they are all in the same row. We were able to do two rows of onions in my square foot garden.
In this picture, I am taking out my pepper plant to get it ready to plant in my garden. I am digging the hole for the plant to go in and putting the plant in the hole with the other hand.
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.
Setting up a Dairy Beef Feeder is very important when you are showing your animal. The back feet and the front feet of the Dairy Beef Feeder should be about shoulder width apart and should be square with each other. This is important because it helps make the meats and cuts of your feeder look good to the livestock judge. Setting up your Dairy Beef Feeder helps show case your feeder to the judge.
Planting the corn seed is another step in farming.  This picture shows me putting corn seed into the planter.  The planter has many different compartments that hold the corn seed while I am planting.  The boxes or compartments hold one rows worth of corn.  The corn comes out of the planter and is perfectly planted in the field with equal distances between the planted seeds.  After I filled the planter with corn seed I took the planter out to the field to be planted.  The type of corn that I planted was Steward seed corn.

In beginning when the lambs were first purchased they were stubborn and perverse. Walking them with the halter benefits them by getting them used to walking and comfortable with their surroundings. Walking the lambs with the halter also gets them complacent with myself.
Walking your pig is important to make sure that your pig stays healthy and fit. I walk my pigs more often towards fair time because my pigs usually need to loss weight. If a pig needs to gain weight I will not walk my pigs as often so that they don
Stable pens, especially during lambing season, are very important. You need to make sure the wire is nice and tight so they stay in the pen and don

During the beginning weeks of September, FFA members sold over 1,400 different mums, making over $11,000! Members of the chapter had the option to use two dollars from every mum that they sold toward any FFA activity. The 8th period ag business class sold the most mums and won a pizza party for their efforts. The Kenton-OHP FFA chapter would like to thank every member who participated in the event and every community member that purchased these mums. A special shout out to Lovina's Greenhouse for providing a variety of different colored mums for us to sell.
