Supervised Agriculture Experieince

Through an SAE students can deveolp education in agriculture experiences and take what they have learned in the classroom and use it in a real life situation¬†with the help from their agriculture teachers.¬†SAE’s are separated in four categories:

Own and operate an agricultural business (e.g. a lawn care service, a pay-to-fish operation, holiday poinsettia production and sales.)

Get a job or internship on a farm or ranch, at an agriculture-based business, or in a school or factory laboratory.

Research and Experimentation
Plan and conduct a scientific experiment. (e.g. Determine whether the phases of the moon affect plant growth, or test and determine the efficacy of different welding methods.)

Explore careers in agriculture by attending an agriculture career fair, or creating a report or documentary on the work of a veterinarian.

Proficiency Awards are given to students who excel in their different SAE Projects.  The following are all the areas of proficiency and the reciepents of them from the Elsberry FFA Chapter this past year.
