Agricultural Science Teacher Workshops

2016 Ag Science Teacher Summer Workshop

Every two years our department hosts an “Ag Teacher Workshop” where high school teachers across the state involved in FFA gather for professional development in poultry judging. 

Teachers walk through the same judging stations their students will assess in the FFA Career Development Competitions next fall. These stations include layer and broiler placing, interior and exterior egg grading, carcass placing and grading,further processed products grading and a written exam. 

Helping these teachers understand the mechanics behind the FFA contests will help their students excel at when they come to the contests next fall.


Each summer our department hosts the P.E.E.P.S (Poultry & Egg Experiences for Prospective Students) camp! At P.E.E.P.S camp, students have the chance to learn about poultry, while participating in hands-on projects.

Join us this year for “Camp P.E.E.P.S.” mini-camps! We will offer four mini-camps on June 13, 14, 16 and 17. Two of these camps are designated for Rising 1st-3rd graders (June 13 and 14), two camps are designated for Rising 4th-6th graders (June 16 and 17).

Camp will begin at 7:45 AM and end at 12:00 PM. We will take 10 campers each day, and will provide poultry science crafts, educational games and a wide array of activities to provide them with a day of learning and fun!
