Sara Mehringer of Dubois, 22, helps her father Larry troubleshoot their new hay baler while Oliver the dog watches them in Dubois on Thursday. Sara says she's going to take over her family farm eventually, and has enjoyed learning from her father. "He's taught me a lot of things over the years, just how to operate a farm. It's not all fun and games, there's some hard times."
