Please take a look around our site to see what's going on at Kenton FFA.

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.
Having a Dairy Steer means that one will be required to walk it, even during the winter months. It is important that one keeps walking the steer during the winter months in order to keep the steer halter broke. It is suggested that the Dairy Steer is walked at least once a week.
On this day the garden was fertilized and watered. My little brother helped me and he did really well. We worked for half an hour on it. The flowers are starting to get color.
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
Me pulling up boxes to stock shelves and store use the trash bags so that we can use them at the store.
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.
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.

Combining is another step in farming.  This photo shows me in the combine operating it.  The combine has a special header on it to separate the rows of corn from each other to evenly go into the combine.  Once the corn goes through the combine the corn is then shortly stored in the combine.  When the combine is full I then take it to the grain truck or hopper to be unloaded.  The hopper is a smaller grain wagon that is pulled by a tractor into the field so you can empty the combine into the hopper and keep the combine farming.  The hopper gets emptied into the semi or the grain truck.
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.
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.

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.

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 and moves the pile of noodles when it gets too big.

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.
