Spring cleaning at the Ponderosa Farm

Spring cleaning at the Ponderosa Farm

The Ponderosa High School FFA farm was the scene of great activity Feb. 22 as over 50 students and parents labored to prepare the facility for the coming months.  Every section of the farm was busy with Chapter members applying fresh coats of paint, splitting wood, preparing raised beds, weed eating and preparing animal stalls.  There even was an Eagle Scout project to build a new lamb barn.

Although the students took great pride in the accomplishment of their handiwork, the clear highlight of the day was the arrival of new lambs.  There was great anticipation of seeing the animals paraded out of the trailer one by one and led to two holding stalls.  The occasional run away lamb added excitement and their loud bleating was often humorous.  Students were allowed several minutes to examine the animals before a lottery settled the question of ownership.

The Ponderosa FFA Chapter is currently celebrating its 50th Anniversary.
