LC FFA attends Ag Reality event


The Lynchburg-Clay FFA junior and senior members recently attended an Ag Reality workshop held at the Patriot Center on the Southern State Community College Central Campus in Hillsboro. During this event the members had the opportunity to farm a plot of ground for a day. Students were charged with the idea of managing ground for a year, on paper, by visiting the many businesses that were in attendance. Members had to determine what crops or livestock would be raised, what production practices to follow, and how to harvest and market their yields to generate income. Members were also given a life scenario where they may have had a family with or without children, held an off-the-farm job, owned a house, or had to create their own living arrangements. FFA members that participated in the event felt like the day was a success and they were able to put into practice the knowledge that they have learned from their agriculture classes and experiences. Pictured are the Lynchburg-Clay FFA junior and senior members that attended the Ag Reality event.
