Supervised Agriculture Experience Project

Responsibility, dedication, and plain hard work are the keys to a successful livestock project. Students enrolled in Agricultural Science courses are encouraged (Agriculture Transfers are required) to maintain a Supervised Agriculture Experience Project, which includes raising a livestock animal, or other type of agriculture production. These projects include swine, lambs, goats, chickens and turkeys, beef cattle and Ag Mechanics Project(s). 

The Supervised Agricultural Experience Program is education. It is hands-on, real-life agricultural career preparation experiences tied to agricultural science curriculum, student aptitudes, interests and career and educational goals and to the agricultural industry. It ties together the entire agricultural education experience. Each agricultural student should have an SAE that is documented in an approved recordbook. 

 

O'Connor High School is privileged to have state-of-the-art facilities available for members to house their projects. Each animal project requires a varying degree of financial responsibility. Students and parents should be advised by an agricultural science teacher before deciding on and selecting a project.
