I started my day off with Mrs. Fry by going to visit Kaitlin Shaffer. Kaitlin is an incoming freshman
|Free stall barn at|
Kaitlin's Dairy Farm
|Jacob working on|
the grill of his current
Our last visit of the day was with Darrah Yerger. Darrah also serves on the FFA
|These are Darrah's Dutch Belted heifers |
and her Belted Galloway bull calf.
Not only did Mrs. Fry just visit with her students and check to see how the SAE's were progressing but also on every visit she had the students pull up their record books and helped them with any questions or problems they were having. We were able to show Kaitlin how to manage her breeding stock and where to enter the calves that were born. Jacob had a few questions on how could he apply for a proficiency award and Darrah was curious where she entered experiences that related to her FFA office.
I had a great day visiting with these Selinsgrove students and can't wait until I get to go on more visits. I was able to see a variety of projects just in one day and I am curious to see what other unique SAE's are found within the program!
