FFA Students Visit Ag Department at PCC

09 April 2021

High school students from the Skyline Future Farmers of America chapter visited the Agriculture Program at PCC.

Ag Power instructor Ralph Williams met with students to give an overview of the industry and the shop where he trains Diesel techs.

Lots of smiles and laughs accompanied the hands-on activities provided by Ag instructors Lori Montgomery and Barrett Smith.

The students used a calving simulator to get a feel for the anatomy of a pregnant cow, and observed new technology in ways to predict calving schedules. They studied the different grades of wheat and got behind the wheel of a sprayer in a virtual simulator that bounces around with every bump or curb check.
It’s not as easy as it seems! The simulator is provided to PCC on behalf of Skyland Grain.

Wildlife Outfitting and Operations instructor Rocky Robinson also gave a tour of the WOO facilities. Current students in the program also shared about their experience in WOO program and talked about the many field trips and project opportunities off-campus.
