Who We Are

(This data and more information on FFA comes from our National FFA website www.ffa.org)

 

Page Content 1

"Future Farmers of America" was founded by a group of young farmers back in 1928. Their mission was to prepare future generations for the challenges of feeding a growing population. They taught us that agriculture is more than planting and harvesting-- it's a science, it's a business and it's an art.

FFA continues to help the next generation rise up to meet those challenges by helping its members to develop their own unique talents and explore their interests in a broad range of career pathways.

So today, we are still the Future Farmers of America. But, we are the Future Biologists, Future Chemists, Future Veterinarians, Future Engineers and Future Entrepreneurs of America, too.

What do the letters "FFA" stand for?

The letters "FFA" stand for Future Farmers of America; however, in 1988 the official name of the organization was changed from "Future Farmers of America" to "The National FFA Organization" to reflect the growing diversity of agriculture.

Our Structure

The National FFA is structured on three levels: local, state and national. At the national level, FFA is led by aboard of directorsand six studentnational officers. Each State is divided into Areas (Texas has 10 Areas) Each Area is divided into Districts. Los Fresnos is in the Area X FFA Association of the TIP-O-Tex District.

How is FFA Funded?

FFA programs are funded throughsponsorshipsand privatedonationsat the local, state and national level. National dues for each member are $7 per year. State Dues are $5.00, Area Dues are $1.50, Tip O’ Tex District Dues are $1.00 and Los Fresnos FFA Dues are determined in a yearly basis by a member vote. Each member is entitled to all intra-curricular FFA Activities and an FFA Chapter Logo T-shirt. Our Chapter has a meat and sweet sale every Fall to raise money for FFA Activities throughout the year. Payment of the FFA dues also provides each member with a magazine subscription and activities.

Yearly membership paid by Oct 3rd

 

 

 

Importance to School and Community

The local school and community will profit greatly from having a good FFA chapter as a part of the school’s curriculum. As an integral part of the instructional program the FFA develops and trains youth in leadership and rural-urban citizenship thus serving and exerting a positive influence for good in their school and community. Therefore, a sound program of activities is based primarily on the needs of chapter members also considering the needs of the school and community.

The fact should be stressed that our chapter members should strive for improved agriculture, better local communities, improved school, a more satisfying home life, and responsible citizenship. Chapter members should be encouraged to serve and cooperate with community leaders in programs of civic, religious, or educational nature. Emphasis in this area can only result in members feeling their involvement has real purpose and value, not only to themselves but others as well.

B. Constitution – A current constitution and by-laws can be found in the Agriculture Department.

The Agriculture Science Student:

We are glad to have you in the Agriculture Science Program and we sincerely hope that you will enjoy this course. This handbook will answer many questions that concern the coming year. There will be additions to this handbook during the year. We hope you will refer to this as the need may arise.

Parents:

We are well aware that many of you are not quite sure what to expect from the Agriculture Science Program. This handbook was prepared to answer as many questions as possible for the students and the parents.

We feel that the Los Fresnos Agriculture Program has the potential to be one of the best programs in Cameron County. We teach leadership, respect, honesty, cooperation, and responsibility, these traits will enable the organization to succeed and grow.

Therefore, we ask for your help and cooperation in the coming year. Let us all work and learn together.

 

 

 

 

Agriculture Science Program

The Agriculture Science Program is defined by these three areas:

1. Organized instruction is the classroom component carried out in the practical application of instruction in a laboratory, shop, and/or the extended classroom field trips.

2. The Supervised Agriculture Experience program in agriculture is the individual students application of knowledge and skills acquired through the instructional component put to practical use outside the classroom, under the supervision of the agriculture teacher. This includes animal, plant and ag. mechanics projects.

3. FFA activities require a combination of classroom instruction, laboratory activities, and the supervised agriculture experience programs. Numerous FFA activities exist which require that students become prepared by studying and experience in each of the three phases mentioned. The close correlation between instruction, activity and experience makes the program successful. The FFA being an integral part of each of the program’s elements has the unique characteristics of binding them together. It often serves as the catalyst, advancing the student more rapidly toward the intended objective.

The following pages contain course outlines for the different programs. They will vary a little from time to time at the discretion of the FFA advisors, but should remain constant for the most part.

General Rules

  1. Each student enrolled in an agriculture class is considered an FFA member as the school district pays the affiliation dues. Those students who are not enrolled in an ag. class cannot be FFA members and are not eligible to participate in any FFA activity, judging contest, and/or any livestock shows under Los Fresnos FFA. Any junior FFA members (3rd-8th grade) must sign up to be an FFA member before or at our October FFA meeting.
  2. All FFA meetings will be based upon democratic principles as outlined in the “Parliamentary Guide for FFA”, by Jarrell D. Gray, and the Official FFA Manual.
  3. Hauling of livestock shall be the responsibility of the student, unless other arrangements have been made with the agriculture science teacher.
  4. The teacher’s computers are off limits to all students unless given direct instruction by the teacher.
  5. Scheduling of meetings and workdays will be determined by the agriculture science teachers and FFA officer team prior to the beginning of the school year. All meetings will be held on the first Tuesday of every month at 6:00 PM for FFA Members and Jr. FFA Members, unless change is needed.
  6. A project record book must be completed by the end of each course for all who are enrolled in an agriculture science course. This is a state requirement! All FFA members showing a project must complete a record book as well. This can be done by logging on to theaet.com. Further instructions can be given by your FFA advisors and FFA officers.
  7. Shop safety procedures will be enforced as directed in the Los Fresnos CISD policy guidelines and agriculture program.
  8. Only the agriculture students will be allowed to use the office telephone, the calls should be agriculture related or consist of an emergency only. The instructor will determine if it is so. There will be no late passes given.
  9. All school dress code policies are to be upheld while in the agriculture building before you come in the building. Dress code will also be enforced at all FFA events including but not limited to livestock shows, conferences, camps, conventions, competitions, fundraisers, and community service activities.
  10. Be on time to class.

Supervised Agriculture Experience

Title 19, Part II, Chapter 75

Texas Administrative Subchapter I

Code and Statutory Pages 6-10

Citation

Specific Requirements

Each student must carry out an approved supervised agricultural experience for three months each semester of enrollment in agriculture science. The supervised agricultural experience shall be optional in the introductory courses.

75.214 Agricultural Course Requirements

(e)The supervised agriculture experience shall relate directly to the course in which the student is currently enrolled and shall be for the purpose of reinforcement, in-depth study, or enrichment related to classroom instruction; however, the use of time during the school day for activities such as feeding and grooming of animals for show purposes is prohibited. The proceeding limitation does not prohibit activities that are designed to assist students in mastering the course essential elements. The three-month supervised agricultural experience requirement for students enrolled in agriculture science may be satisfied by one of the following three methods or a combination of the three:

(1) Agricultural entrepreneurship (involves the functions of organizing and managing the factors of production and distribution of goods and services):

(2) Work experience in an agribusiness establishment; or,

(3) Point credit for supervised agricultural experiences, which require the development of skills, outside the classroom, that are considered necessary for employment in the agricultural science and technology industry.

Livestock Projects

When selecting a project, it is critical that the student have the parents’ advice and support. There are many things to consider: 1) Can the student and/or parent afford the project? 2) Where will the project be kept? 3) Transportation to feed and care for the animal. 4) Transportation for the animal when necessary. 5) Time involved 6) Risk of losing money.

You must keep in mind that these projects are a gamble and they can become a total loss. They can get loose and become lost or run over by a car, dogs can get to them and maul or kill them, and they can get sick and not recover. All this must be considered. The gamble can be reduced by hard work and desire to learn and apply your knowledge.

 

 

 

Project Requirements

  1. The animal(s) purchased for student projects must be an animal designated for either breeding or market purposes.
  2. Family domestic animals do not meet the required project criteria.

Purchase of Projects

  1. The selection and purchase of an agriculture project is a cooperative effort involving the student, the parent, and the teachers. The agriculture teacher’s role is advisory only; the teacher will not dictate what to buy, how much to spend, or from whom the purchase is to be made.
  2. The purchase of projects for agriculture should be coordinated with the agriculture teacher before the projects are selected and before they are purchased.
  3. The students and parents are responsible for the purchase of any and all of the agriculture projects.
  4. Projects purchased for the purpose of showing must meet the requirements of the show(s) intended. The agriculture teacher will assist in providing the student and parent the necessary information regarding the care and grooming. Projects should be age-appropriate for intended show.
  5. All projects must be owned by the students, and all projects must be entered in a student record book in order for the project to be eligible for a show.
  6. The agriculture teachers with the presence of the student will validate all projects for show.
  7. The parents and students will make arrangements for transportation when selecting projects.

Project Supervision

  1. Student:
    1. The student is responsible for the daily care of his or her project
    2. The student is responsible for informing the agriculture teacher regarding any problems and/or progress of his or her projects.
    3. It is the sole responsibility of the students and the parents to purchase feed, livestock show entry fees and grooming equipment used for their projects.
    4. All students enrolled in agriculture science programs must sign a teacher/student/parent contract.
    5. Any student with grade problems or discipline problems may be accepted on a probationary basis.
    6. Any student keeping their project(s) at the school agriculture facilities (farm) is responsible for maintaining their assigned pens and areas. This includes removal of feces on a daily basis, levelling the areas, and replacement of sand during and at the end of the school year or as needed throughout the duration of their project-stay.
    7. Students and parents are responsible for preparing their animal for the show including grooming, clipping, etc. The agriculture teacher will be available for supervision and advice, but will not completely fit the animal for the student.
    8. If a student is ineligible prior to a livestock show, he or she will not be able to show at the show. In that case a substitute shower WILL NOT be allowed to exhibit the animal. The animal will not be shown and the student will be responsible for the animal’s final deposition.

 

 

  1. Parent:
    1. The parent is responsible for the general supervision of the projects on a day-to-day basis. It is the parents’ responsibility to communicate with the agriculture teacher, should a question or a problem arise concerning the project or the student’s performance of his responsibilities.

Agriculture Teachers Responsibilities

A. Any problems that occur with livestock projects should be handled during normal working hours when possible. The agriculture teachers are not required by LFCISD policy to make emergency calls for the purpose of treating sick or injured animals during the evening hours. However, the agriculture science teachers may assist with such problem at his/her discretion.

B. The agriculture teachers will visit each supervised agriculture experience program as required by the Texas Education Agency rules.

C. All projects purchased by the agriculture teachers to be used for the project program and bought for a specific student, must have signed approval form stating that the agriculture teacher will act as the student’s purchasing agent.

D. Participation in the livestock shows is not a requirement for the agriculture program, therefore; student participation at such activities is the responsibility of the parents. Supervision of students at out-of-district show by school personnel will be provided. The number of teachers assigned supervision responsibilities at out-of-district shows will be determined by the director based on need, and the number of participants.

  • Los Fresnos Agriculture Program will participate in the:
    • Tip-O-Tex District FFA Show
    • Cameron County Livestock Show
    • Rio Grande Valley Livestock Show

  • Los FresnosAgriculture Teachers will provide transportation to the following Prospect Shows, please understand that there is limited space in trailers. First come first serve:
    • Rattler Diamond Prospect Oct. 14. -Mrs. Sanchez
    • Gilt By Association Dec. 9. – Mr. Bernal
    • RGV Champion Showdown Jan. 20. – Mr. Gonzales
    • Sonny Brazil Jan. 27. – Ms. Rike

       

  • Students wishing to participate in any other livestock show must inform the agriculture science teachers.

E. Because the FFA is so closely tied to the instructional program it is difficult, if not impossible, to separate the instructor’s role as teacher and as an FFA advisor.

F. The Los Fresnos agriculture instructors serve as a teacher and advisor responsible for the supervision of the agriculture center and facilities as well as the supervision of students during the school days, as well as trips and summer work at school.

G. When possible, responsibilities of the steer, lamb, goat, hog, poultry and rabbit program; agriculture mechanics facilities; FFA activities and fundraising activities will be divided up by the agriculture instructors, the parents and the FFA officers. The instructors will keep set hours during the summer and will post his/her phone number.

 

 

 

Use of Drugs (Procuring and Medication)

The agriculture teachers of the Los Fresnos CISD will not be liable for injury to livestock while assisting the student with their project. This includes such things as giving medication, castration, dehorning, tail docking, de-worming, trimming, and any other activity directly involving the agriculture teachers with the student’s animal.

At no time may project animals be given diuretics or other drugs, medications which are not approved by the major shows. This rule does not apply to those drugs or medications administered by or under the direction of a licensed veterinarian and necessary for the health or survival of a project animal.

Project Location

Because the student and his/her parents are responsible for the daily care and supervision of the student’s project, projects must be located in an area that is both convenient to the student and conductive to the care and well-being of the project. Poor selection of a location will handicap the student in his/her efforts to fulfill his/her responsibilities, and may result in prohibiting of that student to show their project under the Los Fresnos FFA at the advisors’ and directors discretion.

Livestock Show Participation

  1. Each student may choose to show or not to show. This is not an agriculture course requirement.
  2. To show a project, a student must be an eligible FFA member.
  3. In order to participate in a livestock show, students must be passing all academic courses, attend FFA meetings and participate in all FFA functions.
  4. Students whose projects are not ready or are not of sufficient quality to participate in shows will not be allowed to show. The agriculture science teachers will make this decision.
  5. The agriculture science teachers will prepare an approved list of eligible students authorized to attend each livestock show.
  6. Parent permission forms for out-of-valley activities must be signed by the parents and returned to the teacher prior to the student leaving for these activities.
  7. The parent and student will make arrangements with the agriculture science teachers for supervision, travel, housing, and transportation of animals to the major shows in which students enter.
  8. Students and parents will be responsible for travel to and from local livestock shows and for transporting their animals to and from these shows. The agriculture department will assist where possible.
  9. School policies will be enforced and discipline will be according to school policies (EX: dress code, language, tobacco use, etc.)
  10. Students who are released from school to attend a livestock show as FFA members, whether supervised or not, must follow school rules or forfeit their right to participate in current and future shows.

 

 

 

FFA Fund Raising

It will be necessary to have fund raising activities from time to time to raise money for the FFA chapter. Money spent on recreation, meeting equipment, banquet, leadership development, stationary, and many other items the chapter may need to function properly. All FFA members will participate in the selected fund raising activities.

All fund raising activities will be decided on by the FFA chapter and the agriculture science teachers, and will keep with the policies of Los Fresnos High School. All funds will be handled by the FFA chapter and teacher and will be maintained by through the student activity fund at Los Fresnos High School.

The principal of the school shall be responsible for proper administration of the FFA funds in accordance with the applicable provisions of state and/or local laws, and with appropriate accounting practices and procedures.

The FFA should deposit all funds with the bookkeeper. The money shall be disbursed by his/her only for such purposes as may be authorized by the FFA or upon approval of the teachers. All money raised by the FFA organization must be expended for the benefit of the students.

Any fund raising activity must be presented to the principal for his/her approval.

FFA Contest

These contests are educational activities organized by the FFA organization and are sponsored by various groups. They are designed to complement classroom instruction by giving students an opportunity to apply classroom knowledge in competitive situations.

Each contest has been specifically developed to test skills and knowledge of students in a particular area of agriculture.

Los Fresnos FFA students will have the opportunity to participate in contests, but must remember they are bound by the same conduct and travel restrictions that are listed elsewhere in this manual. All students wishing to participate in a contest must be FFA members and enrolled in an agriculture course at the high school level. Any student that wishes to compete in a contest must be available for practices set by an FFA advisor. Failure to attend practices and/or contests is grounds for removal from the team at the advisor’s discretion.

The contests this department may compete in will be chosen each year by the advisors are as follow, (please note this is just a few of many):


  • Leadership Development Events: (FALL)

School Policy and Guidelines

Travel

Any function a student may go to will be considered an official FFA function, and will be bound by the rules in the Los Fresnos Student Handbook plus School Board Policy as well as the FFA Code of Ethics. Failure to follow these guidelines will result in having the student sent back home at the parent’s expense (if at an overnight trip) and dealt with by the school administration.

All agriculture students must have an approved Los Fresnos Field Trip Permission Form signed by parents and returned to the teacher before the student leaves for a trip. On multiple day trips such as Livestock Shows students will be provided meals. Also, some student travel is available through the district. Housing will be provided for overnight competition such as leadership events and conventions.

A trip report and itinerary will be filed in the school office by the teacher for each agriculture trip. This will include information on housing, means of transportation, and departure and arrival times (as best predicted).

Code of Ethics

All agriculture students will honor FFA Code of Ethics. The students will conduct themselves at all times in a manner befitting to their organization, chapter, school and community by:

1. Dressing neatly and appropriately for the occasion.

2. Showing respect for the rights of others and being courteous.

3. Being honest and not taking unfair advantages of others.

4. Respecting the property of others.

5. Refrain from loud, bolstering talk; swearing; and other unbecoming conduct.

6. Demonstrating sportsmanship in the show ring, judging contests, and meetings.

7. Attending meetings promptly and respecting the opinion of others and discussions.

8. Taking pride in their organization, in their activities, in their supervised agriculture experiences, their exhibits, and in the occupations of agriculture.

9. Sharing with others experiences and knowledge gained by attending national and state meetings.
