Children of distinct ages travelled to David City High School on Fri., May 12 to view calves, birds, bunnies, kittens, goats, and more at the annual FFA Barnyard.

Various members took the time to contribute to the barnyard by presenting a variety of animals and equipment to display for preschoolers and elementary students.

With a little hiccup in scheduling, teachers and staff came up with a way to work around the double-booked track and field event to allow their students to view the equipment and livestock shown throughout the day.

FFA Barnyard is a gateway to catch the attention of future members and to educate children who aren’t as familiar with how a farm system works.

“I think it should be open to older students as well because some students aren’t aware of the process to make the food we eat everyday,” junior Taylor Masek said.

Presentations were made on various necessities that go on outside the farm by Aurora Cooperative and the Butler County Extension Office. Tractors new and old were brought in by freshman Spencer Allan and Band Instructor Joe Albright. Timpte also supplied a semi trailer and truck, and other supplies were borrowed from various businesses around David City.

“I think that it is cool that we can show little kids the farm equipment farmers use everyday. Most kids don’t live in David City and don’t know much about the farm, so it is a good thing for kids to see,” junior Mason Helgoth said.

The David City FFA Chapter will continue this tradition to further educate kids of all ages to take in some knowledge about the food we consume everyday by hosting the annual Barnyard again next year.
