What is the difference between a spotted cow and a solid colored one?
That may be a question for The Union City Future Farmers of America.
The FFA received its official charter on Jan. 11 at the mid-winter convention held in Harrisburg during the 100th Pennsylvania Farm Show.
Several dignitaries attended the meeting.
Some included Pennsylvania Secretary of Agriculture Russell Redding, Senator Michele Brooks, Executive Director of the PA Association of FFA Mike Brammer and PDE Agriculture Education Specialist Christopher Weller.
Pennsylvania Secretary of Education Pedro Rivero presented the charter to FFA President Jayden Isiminger. 550 students received their FFA jackets, and of those, five were from Union City.
Students and teachers visited the farm show, watched demonstrations and competitions and toured several exhibits during the three-day trip.
Some of the exhibits included the FFA Agriculture Education Demonstration on hydroponics, cattle show, FFA Agri-Science Fair, FFA Chapter exhibits and others.
The students and teachers also visited the Krieder Dairy Farm in Lancaster, Pa., where the students learned about the dairy production process.
The Krieder Dairy Farm milks 2,000 cows a day and has 6 million chickens.
