Warren County High School’s Future Farmers of America is holding a meeting at the school this Tuesday, Aug 29 at 6 p.m. and inviting the public to attend.“We are working toward building a large animal learning lab, conducting our own chapter leadership workshop, and getting more community involvement within our program,” said Danielle Smith, who is FFA advisor along with Shannon Ford and David Upton. “We are needing the support of our alumni to help us raise funds for the lab and would like to invite any Warren County FFA alumni or supporter to attend the meeting.”The Large Animal Learning Lab will be an outdoor facility so students can have hands-on learning with large animals such as cattle, horses, sheep, goats, and pigs to better prepare them for pre-vet programs and their own production enterprise at home. The goal is $12,000 to build an enclosed facility with stalls/corrals.
