Texas FFA members from the Dallas/Fort Worth area volunteered to advocate for agriculture at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo’s FFA Children’s Barnyard. More than 200 local FFA members were on-site throughout the 23-day event to operate the barnyard and dialogue with kids and their parents about the animals.

While attending the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, visitors venture behind the red barn to see mother animals and their offspring.  The exhibit features all kinds of animals from day-old chicks, mama pigs with their babies to baby lambs and newborn calves. 

A different local Texas FFA chapter operates the Children’s Barnyard daily. Members field a variety of questions and are able to talk to the young children about the opportunities FFA has to offer.

“There would not be a Barnyard if it wasn't for the FFA,” said Volunteer Coordinator, Gary Rosenbusch.

The Children’s Barnyard attracts thousands of visitors each week, which provides hands-on learning in a non-tradition school setting.
 
“The main idea is to introduce the public to farm animals and their babies,” said Rosenbusch.
