Wednesday, September 25, 2013
RUSSELLVILLE — The Russellville FFA Chapter sent 11 members to the Bradford Research Farm Field Day recently.
The Cole County R-1 Schools students learned about majors and activities through the University of Missouri -Columbia college of agriculture, food and natural resources. Those included aquaculture, crop science and turf grass management.
The FFA leaders also met the National FFA President Clay Sapp.
A highlight of the day was when members learned how the rumen worked by sticking their hand into a dairy cow’s fistulated stomach.
Those who attended include Taylor Young, Clayton Thompson, Hannah Michitsch, Elizabeth Wyss, Grace Young, Devin Koestner, Harley Waggoner, Coy Bond, Tanner Morrow, Madisen Boyer and Cole Henson.
