CTE Ag Class

May 24, 2019

Time flew by this quarter! In CTE Ag class, we learned a general and brief overview of major areas in agriculture. Animal science was of focus for this quarter. In class, we fast tracked through the 6 major animal species that included: horses, cattle, sheep, swine, goats, and dairy cows. We covered Nebraska's top 10 crops and the by-products we get from those primary products. Throughout each unit, we learned the history that got us to where we are today in agriculture! 
Students got a hands-on experience with a sensory activity to learn about the different feed ingredients that cattle eat! Students gained an understanding about the different sheep and goatbreeds by creating a project. Each student selected their own sheep or goat breed to learn about. They used the Talkr app to create a talking informational sheep or goat! We will wrap up the end of this quarter by learning about pigs in our swine unit!
