Agriscience Unit 6 : Apply employability skills needed in work-based learning and career planning activities in order to understand the needs of today’s agricultural workplace 681008
Agriscience Program The major components of agriscience will include: Classroom and laboratory instruction FFA Activities SAEP projects
FFA Is an organization that encourages students to have SAE programs Is the student leadership organization used in conjunction with SAE and classroom instruction
SAE Stands for Supervised Agricultural Experiences Is for every student enrolled in agricultural education courses or in the FFA Makes up the third part of the total agricultural program Is for all students and is conducted outside the regular classroom time Is part of a student’s grade
The purpose of SAEs SAEs provide opportunities to explore a variety of subjects about agriscience SAEs provide educational and practical experience in a specialized area of agriscience SAEs provide opportunities for earning income while learning SAEs teach students how to keep good records in a record book or record system Students can win FFA proficiency awards, these awards are based on SAE activities
Types of SAE activities Placement Supplementary Experimental Analytical Entrepreneurship Exploratory Improvement
Project Is a series of agricultural activities related to a single objective or enterprise, such as raising rabbits or chickens, building a porch, or improving wildlife habitats.
“Enterprise” Normally refers to animals or plants and is an example of a part of a entrepreneurship SAE Examples of production enterprises: may include dairy and beef cattle, hogs, chickens, rabbits, corn, tobacco, soybeans, hay, turfgrass, or poinsettia potted plants, greenhouse bedding plants
Production or Productive SAE Project Is an activity that may involve either ownership (productive SAE) or placement (production SAE) for experience in agriculture
Wages and Profits Is one reason to conduct a production SAE project
Beef Cattle, hogs or vegetable production Are examples of a placement in production SAEs were students can earn hourly wages
The Record Book or Computer Is the best place to keep SAE records for exploratory, entrepreneurship, improvement, experimental, analytical, supplementary and placement SAEs
Resource Inventory Is a summary of resources that may be available to conduct an SAE program at home or school
Inventory Is a list of items such as equipment, tools, feeds, and medicines that is updated regularly in a SAE productive enterprise
Supplementary SAE activities Are short-term activities that students learn outside the classroom Are skill specific, non-wage Will help you learn skills you may not normally have an opportunity to learn in the classroom Examples: changing the oil, spark plug or blades on a mower, pruning a fruit tree or staking tomato plants,
Improvement SAE Activities Include improving the appearance, convenience, efficiency, safety, or value of a home, farm, or ranch or a agribusiness facility Does not involve earning wages or ownership Students benefit by learning skills Examples: landscaping the home, building a fence, or painting a room or computerizing the family own business records
Placement SAE Activity The students are employed by an agricultural related business (full or part-time), Usually paid an hourly wage Examples: -placement in production – places students in jobs on a farm, ranch, greenhouse, fish farm or plant nursery. -Placement in agribusinesses – places students in jobs at a veterinary center, florist, garden center, or feed store
Analytical SAE Students choose an agricultural problem not easily tested by experimentation Require students to gather and evaluate data Example: marketing plan for a poinsettia or tomato crop, or to sell farm raised tilapia fish
Entrepreneurship SAE Is a type of SAE for students who want to conduct activities for a profit You may have part or full ownership and assume all financial risk You will develop skills necessary to become established in one’s own business May be production or agribusiness related and involve enterprises (specific crops, livestock or other activities)
Production entrepreneurship SAE Involves raising or producing an agricultural commodity for profit Examples: producing vegetables, growing Christmas trees, raising horses, beef cattle, hogs, chickens, goats, corn, tobacco, nursery crops, and dairy cattle
Agribusiness entrepreneurship SAE You learn how to buy and sale an agricultural commodity or provide a service for a profit Examples: pet business, crop scouting service, feed sales, lawn care service, produce stand, greenhouse operator or running a pay to fish business
Entrepreneurship project Will involve ownership or part-ownership and you will assume all the financial risk
Exploratory SAE Here you want to observe and experience a variety of areas in agriscience in more detail Students can learn more about the different career options in agriscience or agriculture Short in duration usually, fits beginning students well Will help students become literate in agriculture Learn about possible careers in agriculture or agriscience
Exploratory SAE Activities Visiting a agricultural college or university Observing and/or assisting a florist Interviewing a bank loan officer Attending a career day Writing a research paper on career opportunities in agriculture Are in short duration, usually fits beginning students well
Experimental SAE Is appropriate for students who would like to use the scientific method to solve a problem Can be used to create a new product Example: comparing the effects of various fertilizers on plant growth
