The Florence Agriculture Class and FFA Chapter have been asked to conduct a trial for Arizona Grain, to find a cheaper, more effective way to feed cows for local dairymen. They will be overseeing the rate of weight gain for 12 calves over the course of 60 days. The calves were delivered to the school's land lab on Tuesday January 12th, and students were taught to bottle feed. FFA President, Annily Hawks, helped care for the calf after she had bottle fed it.
