SAE / Livestock

All students who are enrolled in an Agricultural Science class are encouraged to have a Supervised Agricultural Experience or SAE. An agricultural education program is made up of three integrated parts: Classroom instruction, FFA and Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE).Students with an SAE learn by doing. With help from their agricultural teachers, students develop an SAE project based on one or more SAE categories:


Own and operate an agricultural business (e.g. a lawn care service, a pay-to-fish operation, holiday poinsettia production and sales. Livestock would also be categorized as entrepreneurship as students own their projects and are responsible for the nutrition, maintenance, and sale of their projects.) All students with a livestock or ag mechanics project are encouraged to join Friends and Family of Plano FFA. For more information you can check out Friends and Family page on our site or go to


Get a job or internship on a farm or ranch, at an agriculture-based business, or in a school or factory laboratory.

Research and Experimentation

Plan and conduct a scientific experiment. (e.g. Determine whether the phases of the moon affect plant growth, or test and determine the efficacy of different welding methods.) Students are also eligible to enter the Ag Science Fair that is held every year in conjunction with the State FFA Convention.


Explore careers in agriculture by attending an agriculture career fair, or creating a report or documentary on the work of a veterinarian.
