• Madera South FFA Pecking at the Egg-conomy

    Chickens that Madera South FFA members have been raising are now producing all natural, free-range eggs, and they are available for purchase! These organic eggs are a product of the MSHS Farm, which is operated and managed by students. Juniors, Alayja Hall and Judith Lama-Mata, are working on the school’s poultry coop project, a part of their FFA Supervised Agricultural Experience. Before and after school they and other students clean the coop, and collect and clean eggs for 50 chickens. n addition to the agriculture experience students are getting, the project also teaches them other real agriculture practices. “They learn some business practices, they learn bio-security practices to keep the animals healthy, they learn veterinary practices, animal husbandry and management,” Ag Instructor, Kristin Sheehan said.
