SAE Projects & Fairs

An agricultural education program is made up of three integrated parts: Classroom instruction, FFA and Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE). Students with an SAE learn by doing. With help from their agricultural teachers, students develop an SAE project based on one or more SAE categories:

   Own and operate an agricultural business (e.g. market animal, a lawn care
   service, a pay-to-fish operation, holiday poinsettia production and sales.)
   Get a job or internship on a farm or ranch, at an agriculture-based
   business, or in a school or factory laboratory.
Research and Experimentation
   Plan and conduct a scientific experiment. (e.g. Determine whether the
   phases of the moon affect plant growth, or test and determine the efficacy
   of different welding methods.)

We are so fortunate to have two fairs to participate in each year. Both Healdsburg Future Farmers Country Fair and Sonoma County Fair will have Healdsburg FFA represented. Check below for important information and links for your market animal projects.
