Part of my morning maintenance is checking hydraulic hoses for leaks.  Here I am changing the hydraulic hose that lifts the Wilrich out of the ground.
Megan Veach and I participating in State Fair FFA Beef Showmanship. We were the only two kids with Miniature Herefords in this Showmanship class. I placed third in this Novice Showmanship class.
This picture was taken at the Oregon state fair before the FFA showmanship and FFA confirmation contests, here I am washing my bull. Throughout the show I washed many times because not only is it important to keep your animal clean for there health and happiness but it helps with herdsman ship and with grooming and fitting to get the best look.
Showing Market Lamb at County Fair in 2014; I received two blue ribbons.

Greasing the powershaft for out 15 foot Dandl flail mower before hooking it up to the John Deere 4630 makes the job much easier.

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.
Continually working on equipment to improve the efficiency during harvest time.

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.

In this particular image, five of us are planting seedlings for future crops. This task is rather tedious because the tractor operator and the people on the planter have to be in contacted and always be focused on the task at hand.
