Templeton, California-May 6, 2013. Templeton FFA held its annual Agriculture Information Day hosting over 300 Kindergarten, first, and second grade students at the Templeton High School Farm Laboratory.
Templeton Elementary School students were treated to a day of activities by over 40 FFA members. Calf roping, cattle branding, and tractor safety were just a few of the activities present. Additionally, several local families and businesses brought animals for a small petting zoo which included tea-cup pigs, dairy goats, chickens, and a bucking bull. Special thanks go out to Scott Silveira and Happy Acres Farms for allowing their animals to be used. Each elementary school student left with an agriculture coloring book and a giant pumpkin plant.
FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agriculture education.
