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
Keeping a clean and sanitary environment for your dairy steer is very important to the health of your animal. Unsanitary and unclean environments often cause parasites and diseases to infect your cow. A dairy steer pen should have enough square feet in it, that allows them to walk around and exercise in.
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.
Keeping accurate records is a major part of your S.A.E. project. You have to keep accurate records of the cost of the feed, your steer, the bedding, and any other supplies. Your records also include how much money you make off of your steer and how much money you spent during your project. It is also a good idea to keep records of any Veterinarian treatment, such as vaccinations. Keeping accurate records will help you manage your project and money better.
It is important to keep your steer clean to insure that it stays healthy. Keeping you steer clean will help prevent diseases. In order to keep your steer clean you have to clean their pen weekly. It is important to insure that your steer has a safe, healthy, sanitary, environment. If your steer has a safe and sanitary environment it will remain healthier and be less likely to get diseases. When planning your setup for your steer you must keep in mind the appropriate space requirements for your steer’s pen.
One of the last steps in my SAE project for the year is taking my crop to the farm to go into the out bin dryer and then into the grain bin.  In this picture you can see me unloading the corn into the pit.  The pit has an augur in it that carries the corn into the dryer to be dried.  The corn then makes it

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.
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.
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.
Stacking the hay to fit on the wagon and be secured for transport back to the farm to be stacked in the barn for later use for feeding in the winter. We ended up having around 75 bales on this 4 acre field.
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.
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.

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.
