Ag I students participated and Bowman County Chapter officers Tasha Pond and Emily Belland along with Claira Kees led a Food science workshop where students got to learn about the dairy industry and make homemade ice cream.  There were 160 students from the area that participated at the day’s activities.  The purpose of the day is to give younger members an opportunity to see some of the opportunities FFA members have coming up in their future FFA careers while learning about agriculture and having fun.

Members of the State FFA officer team were present to help present workshops and assist as group leaders, along with older members from the Belfield, Bowman County, South Heart, Scranton and New England Chapters.  The students participated in a variety of breakout sessions including food science, scoring antlers, equine, leadership communication, FFA Leadership, opportunities for youth in Agriculture and a shop project where the students cut out and assembled cell phone holders.

A great time was had by all the members that participated in the activities.
