Friendswood High School FFA fills barn with new animals, projects
Goats, lambs and heifers can be seen moving into the Friendswood High School Ag Science Facility as the school's FAA show team begins to expand, according to a press release.
More than 100 official FFA members are part of this program, and for many the first thing to do was decide what animal project to have.
"I chose to have a goat as my animal project because it seemed interesting and I knew that I would have a lot of fun, and I wanted to gain the experience," freshman Hannah Saville said in the release.
Ag teacher Trevor Reifel will be driving to Oklahoma to pick up piglets from Indiana that the students will raise as projects. "By this time next month, our barn will be totally full of project animals," Reifel said in the release.
The barn is also undergoing a construction project. The facility's old chicken coop is being removed and 3,000 square feet will be added, which means the barn will house more than 9,000 square feet.
"We are very grateful for being able to expand our barn this year and we are getting very excited for the construction to begin," Reifel said. "We wish our students good luck as they prepare for their shows."
