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.
Brushing your hogs is a good way to insure that they look their best. Grooming is very important, especially when it comes to show time. It is always a good idea to keep your hogs clean of manure. Without manure on them, insects wont be as pron to bit your animals.
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.

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
In this picture I am securing my pepper plant in the soil to ensure that it will not come out of the soil.
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.
Also stacking hay to stack on the farm.

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.

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.
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.

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.

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.
In this picture I am planting my onion starts and making sure they have the correct spacing. I am being sure to keep everything together in the same row but being sure they have room to grow.
Me pulling up boxes to stock shelves and store use the trash bags so that we can use them at the store.

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.
