Why do we need to keep educational agriculture flourishing in our high schools nationwide? Our future agriculture students need a hands-on approach to learning about animals in the science and biology areas.
Corrals for the animals are needed to provide experience with livestock that is not attained in a textbook. Students learn the complexity of animal behavior. They study the nutritional aspects of feeding and caring for animals, plus the techniques are taught along with the marketing of their animals and the animal products it produces.
A well-rounded high school offers computer programs with business standards in agriculture to teach the economics of farming.
