The Fairfax FFA Chapter hosted Elementary Ag Day on Monday, April 30, 2018, at the football field. The students were able to view a number of animals, as well as get to sit and look inside a tractor. There were nine stations at the ag day event.
The first station was a petting zoo with goats, chickens, donkeys, and a bunny that you could pet. The second station included Nubian goats that the kids got to watch get milked. At the third station, FFA member Max Hopkins had his beekeeping equipment that he uses for his SAE with some information on his bees. The fourth station was FFA member Conner Marshall with his bird dog. The fifth station was FFA members Shelbey Morris and Katy Baker doing a presentation on the history of FFA with this year’s scrapbook. The sixth station was FFA member Jordan Sutter with his tractor. He talked about his SAE of crop production and how the tractors and equipment have changed over the years. The kids also got to sit in and look around the tractor. The seventh station was the Fairfax Fire Department talking about fire safety, and showing off the equipment they use for their job. The eighth station was gun safety and trap shooting with Deputies Rick Sons and Devon Sons, with FFA member Zach Garrison. The ninth station was about lawn mower safety with FFA member Tyler Brown.
The Fairfax FFA Chapter would like to thank Fairfax High School for allowing our chapter to have the day to show the students about ag.
