Union FFA advisers took a group of about 50 upperclassmen to the Ozark Fall Farmfest in Springfield Friday, Oct. 6.
At this event, there were hundreds of booths and vendors set up showing off some of the most recent technology in agriculture.
They had everything from tractors to lawn mowers and rabbits to horses.
Students had many opportunities to learn just about anything in the agriculture industry.
It was almost impossible to see everything they had to offer in the one short day we had to spend there.
Not only were the students opened up to this new technology and knowledge, advisers also used this as a time to teach the students who are going to participate in contest teams in the spring. They took the students around different booths to show different equipment, and taught about what the different parts of it did.
This was not only educational for the students, but our advisers were learning new things as well.
It was an amazing experience for FFA members and I hope we get the privilege of returning next year.
