A big week in Ag Business class at the OVCTC! Students have been diligently working on record keeping and applying for awards. In the midst of record keeping, junior students took blood samples to test for pregnancy in our Boer does. Thank you Mr. Bryan Hazelbaker for being such a great resource for us and for taking time out of your day during your free time to assist us! Thank you to Hess Auction Co. for the opportunity to sell our planter so that we can upgrade our planting equipment. Seniors were introduced to taxes and Lyn Rhonemus from Newman CPA and H & R Block joined us for a session that covered the basics of farm taxes and student preparation for the real world in record keeping. Thank you to everyone who helps make our program successful! Maple syrup harvest is right around the corner next! Thanks to John Motts and Hunter Johnson for assisting with the planter on Saturday as well, they enjoyed a good meal afterwards once everything was finished!
