For my project I mowed yards. I also planted trees. I moved my parents yard and also my grandparents yard. I also planted 18 trees for my neighbor. It was a fun experience doing these things for many of my friends and family.
In this picture I am securing my pepper plant in the soil to ensure that it will not come out of the soil.
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.

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.
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.

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.
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.
Also stacking hay to stack on the farm.
Soil testing is a very important part of farming because you need to check and see what nutrients are already in the soil and nutrients that will need added to the soil.  You take soil samples out of the field with a special probe that collects the soil as you push it into the ground.  Once you have the probe in the ground and pull it out the soil is in a compartment in the probe and put it into the soil sample bag.  In this picture I am using a soil probe to collect the soil.  Once I have the soil samples I send them in for testing.  When I get the test results back I can tell what chemicals need bought.
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
Here is where i cut most of my wood. I drag the wood to this location so i can choose if the wood needs a chain saw or an ax. The longer and lengthy the wood the more likely i am to use an ax. This saves ware and tear on the chain saw.

Feed is something that needs to be watched carefully. You need to watch to see if they are one eating it, two how much they are eating and 3 if they are in the same pin, which one is getting the most feed. So this also goes with needing to weigh the pigs often to watch growth so you know when u might need to separate pigs. So here I am feeding my hogs.

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.
