Livestock Parent Meeting 9-1-2020
Posted By: Kimberly Martin   8/19/2020

Dear Parents and Students of Miller Grove FFA, 


We will have the first FFA meeting for the 2020-2021 school year on Tuesday, September 1, 2020 at 6:00 pm in the Ag Classroom. If your student will raise a livestock project through Miller Grove FFA for the 2021 NETLA or major shows, one parent and student is required to attend this meeting. Even if you have raised a livestock show in the past, this meeting is still required to attend. Livestock projects include steers, beef and dairy heifers, lambs, goats, pigs and broilers.  


The Ag Advisors will discuss the MGFFA livestock show guidelines, talk about NETLA requirements and discuss the outlook for livestock shows this year. We will have informational materials for each species that you can raise and show through NETLA.  


Gary Billingsley, Mr. Gatlin and Mrs. Martin will be available to answer questions about the FFA program and opportunities for your student.  

 
August 2020 Update

Welcome back Hornets! We are excited for a fun-filled FFA year! I am still awaiting confirmation on a few dates for August and September, but I wanted to let you know of a few KEY DATES. Students, please get with your Ag Advisor for more details. 
 
Thursday August 20 - State Fair entries due. State Fair entries due for market broilers, public speaking and job interview. Although the State Fair of Texas cancelled the big fair, they have made arrangements for some contests to still take place virtually. If you are interested in competing in Public Speaking or Job Interview, please contact Mrs. Martin. 

**Tuesday September 1 at 6:00 pm - FFA Meeting and Livestock Parent Meeting** This is the first FFA for the school year. There will be a REQUIRED livestock parent meeting at the same time. If a student wants to show a livestock project at NETLA or any of the major shows, the student AND parent(s) is REQUIRED to attend this meeting. Even if you have shown livestock previously, this meeting is required. We will go over the livestock showing guidelines. Please bring your questions about livestock projects. 
 
Pursuant to county guidelines, we will implement social distancing procedures at all FFA events and activities. Masks will be required to attend. Please get with an Ag Advisor if you cannot attend the meetings, we will have an online meeting available for you (same date and time).

Quality Counts
Make sure your child's QC is up to date before you turn in any entries for NETLA or majors. I can't pull kids out of class to complete this, but they are welcome to come in before/after school and lunch (grades 7-12) to work on it. If your child completed it last year but has moved up a division in grade (Junior grade 3-5, Intermediate grades 6-8 and Senior grades 9-12), they will need to retake it.
