FFA is the new agriculture program at Mountain View High School, and it’s already having a blast! The agriculture program has already started construction on the new green house right next to the seminary building, but something even better has happened.
Agricultural students were recently able to go to the Utah State Fair last month, and explore all kinds of different fields in agriculture. There were many different plants, animals, learning activities, overpriced fair food, and lots of different stores.
All of the plants were either humongous, or the most beautiful of fruits and vegetables. The largest pumpkin weighed in at 248 pounds, while ginormous sunflowers reached up to around 10 feet tall.
The pigs hogged their pens all to themselves, while the sheep were trying to find their scapegoats. There were also a lot of cute chicks, but the other birds were showing off their boots (boots are feathers on bird’s feet).
The largest of all the animals were the beef cows, who were busy showing off their muscles. Meanwhile, the milk cows were sitting around bored, but were ready to turn the competition into buttered toast.
The State Fair offered so many different animals and activities, that every student had their own favorite.
“Barn Yard Friends was our favorite,” says Jesus Estrada and his aide, Jo Jaimeson. At Barn Yard Friends students were able to pet all kinds of baby animals and were even allowed to go into the pens.
“The state fair is a great opportunity for students to show off their hard work on their projects! The field trip was a fun way for students to see some of the project options available to them through the new FFA Program here at Mountain View,” says agriculture teacher, Miss Lena Baadsgaard. All of the students really enjoyed the field trip and can't wait to go on more!“Barnyard Friends was our favorite,” says Jesus Estrada and his aid, Jo Jaimeson.

“It was all the cows! It was all the cows,” exclaims Katie Gentry. There were baby cows, beef cows, and milk cows, and all of them were adorable.
