The College of the Ozarks Agriculture Department will host an FFA workshop for area high school students on March 1, 2014, in the Youngman Agricultural Center from 8:30 a.m. to noon.        

The event will include workshops on livestock, dairy products, entomology, meats, dairy cattle, nursery and landscaping, agronomy, forestry, poultry, horses, floriculture and soils.

For the first time, the workshop will feature creed speaking, as well as prepared speaking and extemporaneous speaking. In 2013, the event brought more than 2,500 students from over 90 different schools in the southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas regions, making it one of Missouri’s larger agricultural events.  

Registration is for area high school FFA students and sponsors. Registration forms are located on the C of O website and must be completed by February 21, 2014. An additional $20 fee will be charged for late registration. Workshop participants can pick up their workshop forms beginning at 7:45 a.m. in the Youngman Agriculture Center on March 1.
