WEEK 3 Monday, June 13 After the morning chores were finished, I spent the rest of the morning checking electric fences. In the afternoon, Dad and I went to Farm Service Agency office to certify our crops. This is where you let them know which crops you plant in each field. When I got back, I just worked on some stuff around the farm and helped the kids with their 4-H projects. Tuesday, June 14...

After I got done with that, mom and I left to get some last minute stuff for my D.C. trip and to go watch my sisters game. When we got home from her game, I fed my steers and then I worked with them. When I was done working with them, I went and picked up my brother at Vacation Bible School. After I picked him up, I...

That afternoon my little sister and I took ...
Monday, June 13 This morning I woke up and went outside to feed my steers. After feeding, I worked on stuff around the house and some stuff outside for a couple of hours.

When we got home, we went outside ...
Monday 6/6 I had a hard time getting out of bed this morning. Late nights tend to do that. I fed the babies and younger lambs and gave some of the lambs medication to get them over pink eye. I called on some farms today about selling feed and came home that afternoon to move round bales into the barn that were baled while I was gone in Reno. Tuesday 6/7 After my daily feeding this morning, we ha...
Sunday 5/29 Today I traveled to Wooster, Ohio for the Great Lakes sheep show and sale. I stopped in Eaton on the way and picked up a portable auction block that we use for the auction. On the trailer behind the block were 2 sheep feeders that Dad and I had made that we no longer use, so I was taking them to Wooster to sell in the consignment sale before the actual live animal auction. The sale w...

We walked back to the cabin and had discussions about what we like and dislike about our off...
