West Central FFA members recently helped run the FFA Animal Nursery during the South Dakota State Fair. Members clean pens, feed and water the animals, keep the animal nursery clean and discuss South Dakota and American agriculture with guests at the fair. This years exhibit included puppies, rabbits, calves, horses, a donkey, Button Quail, Pheasants, chicks, feeder pigs, Cosmo the Camel and 2 Belgian Draft horse foals among many other animals.
