All in Agriculture

Meet Allison DeVore

“I have learned many different leadership qualities and a lot of information about animals and the history of FFA,” DeVore said. “I’ve mostly learned about hard work and that is the most important quality to have when belonging to a program like ours.”

From Fire and "Friends" to 4-H and Farming

It was March 21st, 2014 when mine and my family’s life was turned upside down, with mine almost taken. We were raising baby chicks at our house for me to show in 4-H. In late March, we decided that it was warm enough for the chicks to live outside in their little tub, however, we kept a heating lamp on them because Indiana weather is so unpredictable. The lamp was heated by an extension cord that ran from outside on our front porch, under our front door and into our house. In the middle of the night on the 21st, around 3:30 A.M., the extension cord experienced a malfunction that caused the cord to burst in a flame.

The Ag Teacher's Spouse

Thank you for chaperoning events and acting as a mom or dad away from home. You are always there to lend an ear to problems, crack a few jokes and aren't afraid to give us a few motivational talks when life isn't going the way we think it should.

Agriculture and its misunderstandings

 Agriculture is one of the oldest industries in the United States that have been around before time. During the Agriculture revolution, many different improvements came along from improving growing conditions to advancing the technologies for farming. With improvements in the industry, this will bring skeptics and misunderstood information that could harm agriculture. People have assumptions about agriculture that aren’t true and affect how many see ag.
