New Initiative at the Altario Agriculture Academy!
The Altario Agriculture Program is constantly trying to grow through new, exciting student led initiatives. Our newest venture for our students is a bottle calf partnership with Double F Farms.
Individual students will purchase orphan calves from the local farm. They must feed the calves for a minimum of 90 days. At that time they may sell the calf back to the feedlot or decide to feed it longer and sell it at a later date. Students will decide this themselves and will consider current commodity/calf and future commodity/calf prices. After selling the calf, students will reimburse the school for feed and pay a small rental fee for barn space.
This is education!
This program is completely voluntary for students in grades 6-12.
