Haskell helps his parents, Jason and Sara Haskell, by working on their family’s cattle farm. He helps doctor the cattle and run the farm machinery. He chose to work on the farm for his SAE because there are so many different activities he can do there. Haskell enjoys working on cattle with his uncle the most.
Over the last three to four years that Haskell has been working on his SAE, he said he has learned “to have a good work ethic.” One day he hopes to eventually take over the family’s farm.
Haskell plans to attend State Tech in Linn, Missouri, and participate in their general technology program.
The objective of a Supervised Agricultural Experience is to work with educational programs to better prepare FFA students for their future careers. The simple skills such as communication and patience will help them succeed in life. Scott Stone, FFA advisor, says he has his students do an SAE for the learning experience. He says they can explore any career interest they may have and even find a field they might not want to follow. Stone said, “I hope they all have the chance to earn a profit, but I hope they can learn what areas they are interested in as a potential career.”
