FRESHMAN EXPERIENCE... a truly educational day PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, March 21, 2013 2:18 PM

Freshmen members of the Delphos FFA spent a day on the farm or at a local agribusiness to enhance their education and appreciation of the various sectors of the agricultural industry.  The experience teaches students about real world agriculture and allows them to apply skills and techniques learned in the classroom.

“Freshmen Experience is an excellent way for students to experience what we are teaching them in the classroom and also for them to start to develop a Supervised Agriculture Experience Program. They gain hands on experience needed to be well-informed and establish a good work ethic,” said Agricultural Education Instructor, Scott Elwer. “FFA members worked hand-in-hand with 15 local farms and businesses from the Delphos area for the day. Whether it was a seed dealer, vet, swine, beef, or dairy farm, students gained knowledge of what it is like working on a daily basis in the agricultural industry.”

The various pictures below depict the many scenes and lessons learned during this busy day.

The Ag Ed Department would like to thank all the Freshmen Experience hosts for their cooperation and assistance in putting this program together.  Without the help of the individuals and businesses, the freshmen experience program would not be possible.
