In this picture I am feeding my cows. Cows need proper nutrition to grow and survive. They start out with a milk replacer which is a powder that you have to stir into water. Next they get calf starter which are pellets. Then they get various textured feeds till they go to the fair.

Shearing your lamb is necessary when getting them prepared for a market show. In this picture I am shearing one of our own Heilman lambs for the Hardin County Fair.
Keeping accurate records is a major part of your S.A.E. project. You have to keep accurate records of the cost of the feed, your steer, the bedding, and any other supplies. Your records also include how much money you make off of your steer and how much money you spent during your project. It is also a good idea to keep records of any Veterinarian treatment, such as vaccinations. Keeping accurate records will help you manage your project and money better.
In this picture I am securing my pepper plant in the soil to ensure that it will not come out of the soil.
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.
Here I am watching the equipment to see if there are any problems that I would have to fix.

In this picture, I am planting my carrot seeds one by one in a line. We were able to do two rows of carrots in the square foot garden. My planter is a recycled oil tank cut in half that my grandfather put together.
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.
In this picture I am planting my onion starts and making sure they have the correct spacing. I am being sure to keep everything together in the same row but being sure they have room to grow.
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
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.
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.
 Washing and grooming your Dairy Beef Feeder helps prevent it from getting diseases. It also helps their hair grow longer and healthier. It is important that you give them a bath every so often and that you keep the pens clean. I walk my cow a half mile every day in the summer.

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.

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.
