Jack Fehr – West Bend-Mallard FFA

By Staff | Feb 21, 2014

Jack Fehr is a junior at West Bend-Mallard High School in West Bend. He is the son of Cory and Jennifer Fehr and president of the Hawkeye FFA?Chapter.

1.) Why FFA?:

I am involved in FFA because I live on a farm and I enjoy agriculture. I am involved in FFA because I am growing up on a farm and the community I live in is agriculture based.

It is also a great chance to learn about agriculture and travel places to do hands-on activities.

2.) FFA project:

I own about 100 head of cattle and manage their health and feed. I work at our family-owned egg production facility.

Helping my dad, grandpa and uncles with the crops also takes a lot of time and work on my part.

3.) I’ve learned:

The things I have learned most in FFA are leadership, teamwork and responsibility.

Throughout all the classes, activities and projects you do, you gain tons of life skills.

4.) Career path:

After school, I will be involved in agriculture. Between work at home and FFA, I have learned lots about organization and planning.

I plan to work in the poultry field, because of that fact that my whole life I’ve been around and worked with chickens and eggs.

I enjoy producing something that people can have to eat and chickens are great for that.

5.) FFA activities:

Most of my FFA activities have been local chapter things including helping with the Chili-Oyster Supper, fruit sales, helping do some landscaping and attending the chapter banquets.

I did go to an agricultural trade show with my chapter.
