This is a picture of my brother and me. We are thinning out overgrown X-mass trees. We will use these trees for firewood while we leave the other to grow into timber for marketable timber.
Greasing the header on our bush bean harvester. Proper fluid levels, lubricating equipment, tightening belts,and tightening chains are all essential practices of preventative maintenance. Preventative maintenance helps reduce down time during harvest.

Welding on my project (vertical up)
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.
Student project for Marion County Fair
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.
Because showmanship is an important skill that every equine rider needs to know, here I am setting up Ava for our gaming showmanship pattern at the 4H State Fair. By teaching my horse showmanship, she is better mannered on the ground and is more obedient.

Our five Littau berry harvesters parked at the landing next to our wheat field. These machines pick a variety of cane berries (marions, sylvans, chesters, logans and boysens). Machine harvest is much better then hand labor because they allow you to get more done with less labor, saving farmers money if their machines are properly maintained.
