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
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.
Unloading the corn from the combine into a hopper or grain wagon is important because the combine can only hold so much corn before it over flows and needs dumped.  This picture shows me dumping my corn from the combine into the grain hopper to later be transported into the grain truck.  By putting my corn into the hopper I can figure out how many bushels I have harvested off the field and how much the crops weigh, to get an estimate before taking my crop to the elevated to be finally weighed.
In this picture I am watering my tomato plant and making sure that it is getting enough water.
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.

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.

Cleaning your animals pens is very important to make sure that they have a clean environment to live in. You should clean your hogs pens about every three days. You need to make sure to get the areas that are watery, have feed laying, or are just dirty. Make sure that your animal has fresh bedding after cleaning their pen.
In this picture I am securing my pepper plant in the soil to ensure that it will not come out of the soil.
 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.

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.

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.

On October 28th, 2015, seventeen students from the Kenton FFA Chapter left for National Convention in Louisville, Kentucky. On the first day students had some free time at the career show and FFA mall where they were able to visit many different college and business booths. They attended the opening session with keynote speaker Dr. Rick Rigsby, where there were over 50,000 FFA members across the nation attending. 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. Students spent the whole afternoon at the Expo Center where they attended the Second Convention Session and saw the former National FFA Western Region Vice President give his retiring address, and attended a Hypnotist show as a chapter. 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. In the afternoon they took a tour of Harvest Moon Dairy Farm where they learned about how they milk the cows, what they feed them, and what the normal day of a Dairy farmer is like. That evening they attended the 7th session of Convention with Keynote Speaker Brad Montague, Creator of Kid President. On the final day of Convention, Saturday, they attended the final session of the convention where they watched Kenton FFA Members Brandi Barrett, Morgan Houser, Haley Sherman, and Damion Sheldon get their American FFA Degree, the highest degree the National FFA can award an FFA Member.

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.
