FFA WEEK

This week is National FFA Week.  According to the National FFA Organization’s website, it gives members a chance to educate the public about agriculture. During the week, chapters host teacher appreciation breakfasts, conduct “Ag Olympics” competitions, speak to the public about agriculture, volunteer for community service projects and more.

In honor of this week, we wanted to share this video of the history of FFA.

To celebrate National FFA Week, the students at Heyworth High School in Heyworth, IL, held a petting zoo for the non-farm kids to learn a little something about what they do.  Here are a few pictures of a local daycare visiting the animals, as you can see, the kids loved it!
