Hands-On Learning in the Area of Animal Science

 

 

Mrs. Katie Burch’s Basic Agriculture students enjoyed getting the hands-on learning experience while working with swine and dairy heifer projects at the school’s livestock barn. Students

learned how to identify livestock breeds and gender. They also gained a sense of health, nutritional and housing management. Katie Burch is the Burke County High FFA Advisor.

 

 

With students who breed and raise their own livestock, you never know what type of hands-on experiences will arise. Mrs. Burch’s classes enjoyed bottle feeding a kid. They learned the unavoidable circumstances livestock producers sometimes face. This kid’s mother birthed triplets. Being the runt of the three and only half the udder producing milk, Burke County FFA President, Ashlyn Reddick, took matters into her own hands and began bottle feeding. We are thankful she trusted our classes to help sustain “Bluey.” Katie Burch is the Burke County FFA Advisor.
