The Chino Valley FFA (Future Farmers of America) earned top billing in June as the number one FFA chapter in the state. The chapter also earned a spot among the top 200 in the nation out of 5,000 chapters, said Casey Farnsworth, Chino Valley FFA advisor and agriculture business teacher at Chino Valley High School.

The award included a stained glass panel that would hang at the school, Farnsworth said.

Chino Valley High School offers six agri-business courses this year: Applied Biological Systems 3-4, three courses of AgriScience 1-2, Viticulture, and a Cooper Agriculture Center farm class.

As one of the advisors of the Chino Valley Future Farmers of America chapter and director of the Cooper Agriculture Center farm, Farnsworth oversees the 52-acre land lab. The CAC provides education for CVHS students in the production of orchard grass hay, beef cattle, sheep and goat, chicken and turkey, and tilapia.

"We also make available to our students pasture and pen rentals for the raising of their own livestock projects if they are not able to do so at home," Farnsworth said. "Our goal is to help our students develop leadership skills, prepare for further education, and to enter into the agriculture industry."
