Springville & Payson FFA Tour Utah
The Springville and Payson FFA chapters joined together July 14 & 15 for a one of a kind summer ag tour. Students from both local FFA chapters had the opportunity to tour many interesting and unique places while on this tour. On the 14th, students visited Loveland Living Planet Aquarium, to learn more about the wonders of aquaculture; they also explored Animals Inside Out, which was hosted by The Leonardo in Salt Lake City.
On this tour they were able to view up close all the components that make up not only animals, but humans as well. The final tour of the day was the Salt Lake Temple Square gardens, where FFA members were taught about all the work that goes into making Temple Square the beautiful place that it is.
On the second day, students were able to first watch a pig be harvested and prepared for consumption, and then toured the Utah State Equine facilities, in order to learn more about the opportunities the college offers for students interested in equine or veterinary sciences. The final stop of the tour was Hoffman AI, where they were taught about artificial insemination, a way of breeding animals that is safer for everyone involved.
This trip was a great opportunity for members to learn more about many different options for employment in the agricultural industry, and to get to know fellow FFA members better!
