What's new With Elk Grove FFA?
Spring has sprung and Elk Grove FFA is busier than ever! Judging teams are traveling the state on Saturdays trying their skills at College and University Field Days. Best of luck to our FBM, Records, Vegetable, Sales, Cooperatives, Vet Science, B.I.G., Livestock and Agriscience teams as they travel to their final field days and state finals!
Have you been to the farm lately? It is currently home to approximately 200 pigs, goats, lams, rabbits, steers and laying hens! Our students are working towards getting thier animals ready for pre-fair and Sacramento county fair. Speaking of county fair, don't forget that entries are due during Spring Break on April 18!!! If animals are not entered online through the fair, they will not be sold or shown!
Its raffle time. Students and parents have been working hard to collect prizes for our annual raffle! Tickets are now on sale for $1 each! Get yours today. All proceeds benefit members by purchasing meeting supplies, refreshments and sending students and projects to competitions! Sell 5 and earn an activity point! The drawing will take place at the April Meeting on April 23, 2014 in the cafeteria. Also that evening, the election of the new chapter officer team! Please attend and support the candidates!
Need eggs, plants, or just want to come out and watch a good livestock show? Come to the prefair! Held at our very own farm. Friday, April 25 will be beef and dairy all day and the sheep, goats and rabbits will begin after school. Saturday is swine day! The silent auction, raffle, plant and egg sale will be happening both days. It is also a great time to support the boosters by buying spirit wear, eating at their snack bar or ordering FFA polos and swine waterers for fair!
