Here I am cleaning out underneath the dump pit. Water gets trapped underneath and it can cause it to rust. By cleaning out out the water and other debris it can prevent future problems. I used a vacuum and an air compressor to remove the debris. In the picture I am using the air compressor to blow out the debris.
Lambs need sheared so they will not become overheated, also shearing is required when showing in a market lamb class. I also shear inorder to get an idea of the lambs I would like to keep back for use in my flock, as market lambs, or to send to market. Furthermore, shearing allows me to see the condition of the ewes and lambs to determine an appropraite feed program for each individaul ewe or lamb.
I prep my training horses to ride by wrapping their leg. Horses that are working hard need their legs wrapped for support. They could blow a splint or pull something in their leg if their wraps aren
Taking out my turtles to clean their cage. by doing so, i change their shavings, replace their water bowls, and replacing their food. twice a month i scrub the bottom of their cage as well, before replacing the shavings.
Trimming rabbits toenails are an important management practice. Trimming toenails is normally done to any rabbit a few days before it goes to the show and to all other rabbits. You should keep toenails trimmed to keep the rabbits from getting them caught in the cage wire and ripping there nails or from leaving bad scratches. Also to keep the other rabbits safe when breeding comes to hand. If toenails are not trimmed and are broke off they will take a while to grow back and may not grow back the right way. Leaving a fault if you were wanting to show the rabbit.

I learned this year that you have to check a rabbits toe nails to see if they are the same color for fair. The also have to be not split or jagged. this is my rabbit I am taking to fair. He is a fixed male and i got him from an auction. I will be showing him in the pet category.He is a mix long haired lion head.
Cattle are fed whole kernel corn and hay in the winter. The herd is a 10 cow cow/calf herd and consist of mostly Angus. However there is also one belted cow that is a Buelingo. In the future my employers would like to phase out the angus and have a herd of Buelingo cattle. The reason for this is because the Buelingo breed has excellent mothering abilities and fast growth on pasture and good meat qualities. The cattle are fed in the barn so that the feed and cattle stay dry. We also make sure that there is a place at the bunk for every animal so that there is no fighting over feed.
