The Farm Business Management CDE is a great way to showcase your
agriculture programs integration of academics. Any school administrator
would be impressed by your chapter participation in this activity. If you
have 3 to 4 students that have demonstrated incredible math skills and
that would like a challenge, this would be a great way to get them
involved in agricultural education and FFA. This event is a senior
division activity (grade 9-12).


There are plenty of old exams for practice on the Georgia AG-ED web site.
It would also be helpful if you get copies of the old National FFA Farm
Business Management CDE exams. The area contest will not have a team
activity, therefore the only part of the CDE a student will have to
complete is a multiple choice exam with some general questions about farm
business management, economics, etc... and a few problem solving type
questions.
