In the spring when the ground has thawed out is the time when you prepare the field for planting. Here I am plowing the field with the tractor. You must use the disc to flip the dirt.
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.
At the time this picture was taken I was feeding my calf five scoops a day. At the end of the project I was up to feeding my calf eight scoops a day.

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.
also stacking hay.

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.
Also stacking hay to stack on the farm.
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.

 With an S.A.E. comes great responsibility. Showing or raising any livestock takes a great amount of responsibility. It is important that you feed and water your steer daily. You should feed and water your steer at least twice a day. It is important your steer has clean feed and water to insure it stays healthy. If your steer’s water and feed are not clean they will be more likely to get diseases, which is why it is important that they are kept clean. Your steer needs to get the appropriate amount of feed a day to insure your steer remains healthy and continues to grow.

Unloading the corn from the combine into a hopper or grain wagon is important because the combine can only hold so much corn before it over flows and needs dumped.  This picture shows me dumping my corn from the combine into the grain hopper to later be transported into the grain truck.  By putting my corn into the hopper I can figure out how many bushels I have harvested off the field and how much the crops weigh, to get an estimate before taking my crop to the elevated to be finally weighed.

Planting flowers for my SAE. I planted Marigolds, Impatiens, and Celsia. I planted 8 Impatiens and 6 Marigolds.

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.
