In this picture my plants are being watered after being planted. I am using what used to be an old fuel jug that collects run off rain water from the gutter to the tank as my water resource.
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. This is another example of a similar noodle cutter that I bought, since my Amish friends moved away. This example picture is showing the actual cutting of the noodles. This is the size of noodles that I usually make, but I can make them into a thicker size of noodles with the machine.
This is the John Deere 7600 with a 327 John Deere small square baler that we use to bale our hay every year. This tractor has 120 engine horsepower and 95 to 100 power take off horsepower. The 327 small square baler requires around 75 to 80 horsepower to run and makes 70 to 100 pound bales. This baler has a chute attachment so it brings the bales right up to the wagon deck to be stacked on the wagon. This a vital tool in keeping the sheep healthy and at the peak of their production.
 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.
In this picture I am moistening my soil around my plants to make sure they are getting enough water.
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.
Here is where i stack my wood when it is all cut up. It is located under a tree house to keep it dry. If the logs are to big for and ax ill use my chain saw to make the process go faster. The sizes of the wood shown vary because of the different methods of cutting.

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.
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.

A great strategy that is also a very strategy is to just make straight rows while mowing. This strategy is very simple but at the same time it also looks very good. Something important to also remember is to maintain the same height of the blade every week you mow. Mowing is very simple as long as you are responsible.
Preparing the 2015 market lambs for the weigh in. The lamb was reluctant to walk to get sheared. Walking helps strengthen their muscles and keeps weight at a manageable level.
After the dough is cut into 5-6 pieces out of the oval shaped finished dough, we roll the dough through the crank to flatten the pieces out. The pieces of dough need to be flattened twice until they are about 4 feet long.  I bought a noodle cutter like the one shown in this picture. It was necessary for my business to strive since I could no longer use this one and it is a huge asset to my business. I can make smaller or larger cuts of noodles with this machine, as well as flattens them as shown

Here I am watching the equipment to see if there are any problems that I would have to fix.
In beginning when the lambs were first purchased they were stubborn and perverse. Walking them with the halter benefits them by getting them used to walking and comfortable with their surroundings. Walking the lambs with the halter also gets them complacent with myself.
In this picture I am planting my onion plants and making sure that they are all in the same row. We were able to do two rows of onions in my square foot garden.
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.

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.
