Brantley FFA celebrates agriculture, Land Judging Team

Published 12:57 pm Friday, March 13, 2009

Brantley School held its annual FFA animal day. The children responded well to both the animals and the classroom tour. They learned about the importance of agriculture and how it is involved in their everyday lives. The younger FFA members gained speaking and leadership skills’ experience while talking to the elementary students during the classroom tour.

This tour taught the younger students about the environment, the importance of crops such as cotton and corn, and also the importance of livestock such as cows and chickens. The 6th grade tour also served to encourage those students to join FFA next year when they become high school students.

While on the animal tour, the kids saw horses, goats, ducks, chickens, rabbits, snakes, and many other animals. During FFA Week, the FFA sponsored an elementary coloring contest with the winners receiving prizes.
