Dr. Matthew Turner of North Carolina prepares a herd of three-week-old piglets to be weaned from their mothers and transitioned to dry feed and water. He explains that raising pigs in the barn will protect them from environmental risks and provide them warm, comfortable, draft-free housing and plenty of natural feed and water for them to grow. He also ensures that the staff is adhering to the farm's animal welfare policy that he authored and instituted, and shares his pride in their attention to animal welfare.

As I was considering careers in high school, one of my favorite mentors said to me, ?Being an agriculture teacher is like being paid to be an FFA member.? They were right. Every day is something new! I love hanging out with my students all day; discovering, learning and crafting new realities for their future.
Best thing about CoP:
Making new friends then meeting them in person later! I have come to know so many people from across the country by first seeing their name on CoP, then meeting them at various professional development events throughout the year.
Why she volunteered: I am in the unofficial ?FFA Nerd Club? and volunteering to facilitate this community means I get to share that passion. I love connecting with FFA advisors and sharing ideas, so it seemed like a great way to do that and help others at the same time.
Resource in your community on CoP you would like to highlight: FFA Week Discussions and Ideas!
Communities of Practice is a professional networking site for agricultural educators managed by the National Association of Agricultural Educators. Its purpose is to create a common place for anyone who is interested in agricultural education to share ideas and resources.
