The 2014 Landscape for State Fair- It won first place!
Knowing how your planter works insures correct operation, adequate application, and high yield production. Fertilizing while planting saves money and time by reducing equipment operation and minimizing labor costs.
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.
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.
This picture is of myself working on a rather large burn pile. This burn pile was from a large number of X-mass trees which we had to thin out in order to provide adequate light and water for the remaining trees.
Here I am in the water pick-up.
In this picture the Silverton chapter officers and I are educating eighth graders from all the outlining schools about FFA and why it is important. We give a short presentation about the classes that they can take in high school that are related to FFA, what FFA consists of and all the contests, and the benefits. At the end we do an activity that gets them motivated and more familiar with the FFA experience.

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.
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.
