EC FFA at FSR

The East Clinton FFA Chapter recently had a great time in Madison County at the annual Farm Science Review.

There were many agricultural brands and businesses present and the chapter was able to learn about what kind of equipment is used when farming, about different seed companies, where milk comes from, the wildlife in the general area, and more.

As stated by one student, “The opportunity to be able to experience all of the booths as well as the colleges present who are agriculturally active was really great for me, and it broadened my views on agriculture.”

Thank you for all those who attended and to East Clinton for allowing the chapter to attend the event.
