Cardinal Community Academy's 
Agricultural Education Corner

This week in Ag.... 

Students are learning about the FFA Creed, what it means to them and are tasked with reciting the Creed before the end of the quarter. We are currently working through Paragraph 2 of the Creed. Students will be presenting their solution this week to their Agricultural Issue. This was an outlet to use their creativity and address how we can compromise with both sides of an issue to come to a beneficial solution. This week will be starting our unit on Woodworking and will hear from Chad Rupple as he discusses his trade. 

2023 Fall Quarter Highlights.. 

Students have spent the first couple weeks of Ag Education at CCA learning about how agriculture impacts their daily lives. Students then spent time discussing and researching on a commodity from Weld County. They then presented to their class and brought in a by-product of their commodity to share with their classmates. Guest Speaker, Duke Latham of Cargill, came in to discuss commodity trading and the commodity market. Students have picked an Agricultural Issue and presented to grades K-5 on their issue! Our students have learned how to evaluate pasture land and perform the Career Development Event, Range Judging! Some of our CCA Students will be competing in the Range Judging Contest on September 26th and we want to wish them the best of luck as they represent our school!

We have toured Roggen Elevator to learn more about commodity trading and how we market the wheat and other commodities we raise in Weld County. Students toured H2 to learn more about shop safety and land reclamation. We would like to thank H2 for supplying lunch for our Ag Students!
