Supervised Agricultural ExperiencesWe will be using exploresae.com to help students choose SAEs for this year.An agricultural education program is made up of three integrated parts: Classroom instruction, FFA and Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE). Students with an SAE learn by doing. With my help, students develop an SAE project based on one or more SAE categories. Here are a few examples of those categories:EntrepreneurshipOwn and operate an agricultural business (e.g. a lawn care service, a pay-to-fish operation, holiday poinsettia production and sales.)
PlacementGet a job or internship on a farm or ranch, at an agriculture-based business, or in a school or factory laboratory.
Research and ExperimentationPlan 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.)
ExploratoryExplore careers in agriculture by attending an agriculture career fair, or creating a report or documentary on the work of a veterinarian.Courtesy of National FFA OrganizationFor more information, check out my links page.
