Springville & Payson FFA Tour Utah

Serve Daily - - NEWS - By Caitlin Dinkel

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!
