This page is designed to help FFA members become better familiar with selecting, raising and caring for thier animal. The term associated is a Supervised Agriculture Experience (SAE) project. Parents can use this information as well to answer questions you may have about showing livestock.
Showmanship clinics are given periodically at our ag facility to help students show their animals as well as look for opportunities to become better at showing and honing in the skills needed to be successful in the show ring. By continuously practicing with your animal in the show ring as well as a daily basis, the FFA member or "exhibitor" will be able to identify the areas of improvement needed to become a champion showman.
Below are several YouTube videos about showing each individual species of animal including additional information we have found to help guide the exhibtor. This is not a replacement for hands on experience. You can learn a lot from watching, but the most effective way to learn how to show any animal is through hands on experience, and repeated practice.
