FFA SAE Agricultural Project Ideas - Dairy and Livestock

Dairy or Livestock Growing Project

Do you have milk or meat producers in your community?  A Dairy or Livestock Growing Project could be a great fit.  Get farmers and their vendors engaged in the project and encourage others in your community to contribute by “sponsoring” the animals.  It can be a great opportunity to help the community learn where their food comes from too.
