The Goldendale FFA recently held its first annual FFA Ag Day.

The Goldendale FFA hosted its first Annual FFA Ag Day on Friday, April 29. The goal of the event was to increase youths' awareness of the agricultural industry through hands-on interactive learning activities. Goldendale FFA members in 7th through 12th grade developed educational stations for local students in 4th grade and below. The event was attended by students of Goldendale Primary School, Roosevelt School District, and Learning Ladder Christian Preschool.

The educational stations that were planned and operated by FFA members included: butter making, varieties of apples, coloring dairy breeds, planting seeds, identifying bolts, engine operation demonstration, rabbit education, sheep education, beef education, coloring plant parts, and a greenhouse tour.

Elementary students were also able to milk a life-size cow, toss bean bags in animal cut-outs, sit in two large tractors, race through a straw maze, practice roping, and meet the Klickitat County Fair and Rodeo Queen Kassandra Wedgwood.

Lastly, FFA members organized a petting zoo with horses, a minute donkey, ducks, geese, chickens, rabbits, pigs, a goat, and sheep. A hand-washing station was donated for the petting zoo by Daniel Lefever of Bishop Sanitation.
