W-F FFA teaches students about agriculture
The Weyauwega-Fremont FFA chapter held Food for America at Weyauwega and Fremont elementary schools and at the Randy and Lisa Yorkson Farm in.
Food for America is designed to teach third graders where their food comes from.
FFA members traveled to their classrooms to formally teach them about their food.
The students made butter and ice cream and also did such crafts as a Wisconsin agriculture word search and cow puppets.
The students then traveled to a farm to experience what was talked about in the classroom.
At the farm, the FFA members taught eight rotations, which included sheering sheep, milking cows, milk house operations, horses, calves, machinery safety, poultry, swine, goats, rabbits, feeding and taking care of livestock around the farm.
The FFA chapter extends its appreciation to the Yorkson family for again letting the students use their farm for the program.
