This year I got the opportunity to attend the NWSS in Denver, Colorado. Here I handed out ribbons to all exhibitors at the Miniature Hereford World Show and helped all the Mini Breeders during the week.
This is me filling an order of bolts. I am collecting them and putting them in a bag so I can weigh the bolts. Depending on the size of the bolts it is easy to use a hand held magnet that can be release to move the bolts. Hynes Farm Supply is different from other businesses that sell bolts because we sell bolts by weight instead of by the piece. Weight is a system that is easier rather than counting each piece individually.
By being the secretary, I have the job of creating checkoff sheets that consist of homework, unit tests, tractor driving forms, and the final written and driving test scores.
Grinding the booths and smoothing them so they look pretty

State Fair 2009 we received 2nd place for Beef Herdsmanship. Next year we will work even harder for 1st place. Herdsmanship is where we keep our animal bedding clean at all times and our animals clean as well. At the end of the week whoever has kept their area more clean will win the Herdsmanship Award. My first year in 2008 we placed 1st, 2009 we placed 2nd, and in 2010 we placed 1st.
I am using the oxy-Acetylene cutting torch to cut 3/16 inch steel flat bar to be welded on a water truck.  The flat bar is going to get welded onto the fender as a brace.
Replacing the undercarriage on our 8400t. Knowing how to repair and replace parts is essential to operating a prductive farm.
This is our Shuknecht SP-90 onion harvester. This machine enables one person to load several hundred thousand pounds of onions daily. This machine is incredibly efficient compared to our old lifter.
Greasing the powershaft for out 15 foot Dandl flail mower before hooking it up to the John Deere 4630 makes the job much easier.
