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
Exercise is needed often to keep the a lot of belly fat off and the muscle on. Here I am walking one of my hogs. Keeping him at a constant pace so not letting him run or not letting him stop also helps with control. I walk in the morning or in this case a night so its cooler for them so they will not over heat.
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.
In this picture I am watering my tomato plant and making sure that it is getting enough water.
Washing and grooming your cow is an important part of taking a Dairy Beef Feeder S.A.E project. It is important to keep your Dairy Beef Feeder clean so that it stays healthy and keeping you calf clean will help prevent diseases. In order to keep your calf clean you have to clean their pen weekly or they will just get dirty again. Feeding and watering your calf is another important part of caring for your Dairy Beef Feeder. I water to my calf two time a days with a gallon bucket. I also feed my calf two times a day.

Keeping a clean and sanitary environment for your dairy steer is very important to the health of your animal. Unsanitary and unclean environments often cause parasites and diseases to infect your cow. A dairy steer pen should have enough square feet in it, that allows them to walk around and exercise in.
People feed pigs in different ways. They ether hand feed them or have automatic feeder. I hand feed my pigs. My pigs need feed 2 to 3 times a day. We feed our pigs feed that we have had specially made with the amount of minerals and grains we have picked. We change how much feed we feed our pigs when it becomes closer to fair time depending on the pigs weight.
The lambs are being fed a cup of pellets for the second time that day. Nutrition is a key factor in keeping the sheep healthy. Managing feed helps regulate the sheep

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.
Me pulling up boxes to stock shelves and store use the trash bags so that we can use them at the store.
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.
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.

That night students attended the FFA concert with Jake Owen and Maddie and Tae. On Thursday, members went on a tour at Food Chain, where they learned about how their business is ran, and how aquaponics works.

That night they attended the Buckeye Bash where they were able to meet many different FFA members across the state of Ohio. On Friday, they spent the whole morning touring the Kentucky Horse Park and learned about and saw many different breeds of horses, and enjoyed the gift shop.

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.
