First Day at National Convention and Expo by Megan Roell

First Day at National FFA Convention and Expo

By:  Megan Roell

Date: October 25, 2017

First stop was Kelsay Farms, a sixth generation dairy farm and crop farm. The dairy operation milks cows 3 times a day. The kids enjoyed milkshakes and a tour about how their operation works and the different types of jobs they have on the farm.

The second destination was Ozark Fisheries. Here we were taken on a tour that showed the ponds and hatching areas. It is a family owned and operated farm that is full of ornamental goldfish and koi. We learned about the different type of fish and how the fish are grown.

Last but not least the third stop was Umbarger Show Feed Mill. They are a fourth generation family owned and operated business located in central Indiana. The students were shown different types of grain, the feed formulation process, and how the packaging process works.
