2017-18 Activities

SEMO District Fair 9/9-9/17- We had twelve students enter field crops, animals, and agriculture mechanics entries for judging. Between those twelve students we entered many exhibits spread between the FFA and open divisions. Of those exhibits we brought home 58 ribbons. 
FFA Rituals Competition/Area 16 Leadership Conference 9/27/17- The FFA Rituals Competition is a contest performed by FFA officers. Area teams compete against each other in performing opening and closing ceremonies as well as setting up the room properly for an official meeting. While the rituals teams are competing there is also a leadership conference taking place ran by the Area 16 FFA officers.  
SEMO Field Day 10/11/17- The SEMO Field Day is put on by the agriculture department at Southeast Missouri State University. The university staff and students facilitate a tour of the campus greenhouse and the surrounding area. Outside the greenhouse they have a variety of stations at which they give a brief explanation of a specific process, the history of the greenhouse, biodiversity, etc. From the greenhouse we make the journey to the university farm. The learning continues there as students and instructors put on mini-techs providing information on a vast array of agriculture topics. This year at one of the mini-techs on veterinary science there was a ported cow. The students were actually able to see into the rumen of the cow through the port. After all the mini-techs the university then provides a meal for all those in attendance.
