SAEs are a great way to get classroom credit and FFA awards for doing things like exploring careers, earning money and having fun!
An SAE (Supervised Agricultural Experience) is a practical application of classroom concepts designed to provide “real world” experiences and develop skills in agriculturally related career areas.
Ownership/Entrepreneurship - this type of SAE makes you a business owner. You plan and operate an agriculturally related enterprise or business. Examples include producing and marketing livestock, crops, nursery plants or forest products, providing a service such as lawn care, processing agricultural products, repair, design or fabricating agriculturally related equipment.
