Keeping accurate records is very important when dealing with any type of animal.  It is important to keep good records of vet visits, how much you spend on your animal and how much you earn from your animal. You also want to make sure that you keep good medical records and medication records for your animal.
Putting the gas in the mower is a very simple process but you still have to be very careful not to spill any gasoline,which could create problems. Luckily for me my parents purchases all of the gasoline for me because I mow our yard and enough gasoline to mow other yards is sort of there payment to me.
Cleaning the pen is important to you and the hogs. You need to
Make sure the pigs can stay healthy and keep their pen clean. Cleaning the pen keeps parasites and diseases away, it keeps the pigs clean to. Cleaning is very important for your hogs.

Helping a lamb nurse for the first time is sometimes a necessary task. It is vital that the lambs get up and nurse right after birth to get the much needed nutrient rich colostrum from their mothers.
Working the land is also an important part of my SAE.  This picture shows me working the land in the tractor.  I work the land after there has been a harvested soybean crop in the same field.  I work the land to also flatten and till up the bean stubble in the fall before the winter comes.  After winter has passed and it is time to plant the corn seed there will be no bean stubble in the way.  I also have to work my land after there has been manure spread on the field.  I work the land after manure has been spread so that the waste does not create run off into creaks and streams and also mix the manure in with the soil.

It is very important to do a moisture test on your crop product before taking the crop to the elevator.  In this picture I am putting a sample of my corn into the moisture tester. I tested the corn before it was put into the dryer and it had a twenty percent moisture content.  Before I took my corn to the elevator I tested the corn again and it had almost no moisture in the corn.  Testing the moisture before taking it to the elevator is very important because if the crop has high moisture you would get docked at the elevator and lose money.
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
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.
This is the product of planting my garden. The planter is made out of half of a recycled oil tank and rounded on the outside with garden hose. There is a lattice in the back for plants to climb up.
When your calves come home, you should sit in the pen with them. This lets them warm up to you. It will make walking them easier.
This is the John Deere 7600 with a 327 John Deere small square baler that we use to bale our hay every year. This tractor has 120 engine horsepower and 95 to 100 power take off horsepower. The 327 small square baler requires around 75 to 80 horsepower to run and makes 70 to 100 pound bales. This baler has a chute attachment so it brings the bales right up to the wagon deck to be stacked on the wagon. This a vital tool in keeping the sheep healthy and at the peak of their production.

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.
