Anthony Wayne FFA tours Ohio State ATI

On Wednesday, December 10, 2014, a group of six Anthony Wayne FFA members took a field trip to The Ohio State University Agricultural Technical Institute in Wooster, Ohio. Students toured the university campus, then visited three of the college’s farms and land laboratory. The dairy farm highlighted a state of the art parlor system that student workers use to milk the farm’s 130 cows. The beef facility has a handling system designed by Temple Grandin, a well known animal handling expert. And finally, the equine facility owns and boards race horses that students care for. The Anthony Wayne students learned a great deal about equipment, animal care, and the best facilities for livestock. Students also learned about the university and agricultural career opportunities. Cody Perry, a senior at Anthony Wayne, said “I learned a lot about college life and the impressive campus,” and Olivia Behnfeldt said “I enjoyed seeing different barns and animal facilities.”
