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.

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.

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.

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.
