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.

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.
In this picture I am securing my pepper plant in the soil to ensure that it will not come out of the soil.

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.

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
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.

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.
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.

Keeping accurate records is very important when dealing with any type of animal.  It is important to keep good records of vet visits, how much you spend on your animal and how much you earn from your animal. You also want to make sure that you keep good medical records and medication records for your animal.

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.

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.
