I am greasing the lifter cylinder on the Wilrich before heading out of the barnyard in the morning to work ground.  It is important to keep everything greased so that it will work efficiently with little wear.
In this particular picture, I am operating the Takeuchi Tb125 track hoe. The task at hand is to back fill a trench which we put drainage pipe in so the water would not flood are crops.
During chores, I often pick up the lambs to make them friendlier. This is important because it makes them easier to handle later on when cooperation is key.
We haul our green peppers to our home shop near Mt. Angel in boxes from the surrounding fields. Then we dump the boxes into belt trailers owned by custom haulers that long haul the peppers to the plant in Fruitland, ID
Knowing how to efficiently operate tractors is an important attribute for planting. Having the ability  to drive straight at a consistent speed helps minmize errors, plant spacing, overspraying, and overseeding.
