The A.B. Graham Ohio Hi-Point FFA chapter members recently competed in the Ohio FFA Farm Business Management career development event.
The purpose of this contest is to provide students with the opportunity to make a practical application of the knowledge and skills learned in the production agriculture curriculum in solving typical farm management problems. This CDE should stimulate interest in the farm management instructional program and as a result, help students to become more effective farm managers.
