Turning SAE Projects into Successful Businesses

April 12, 2016

Will Aycock is an eighth-grade FFA member at Albertville Middle School in Alabama, and he is also a recipient of a 2015 SAE grant. Will is using the grant for his swine production SAE, and he wants to encourage other FFA members to get involved in showing pigs.

South Hunterdon FFA member Charles McDaniel started a landscaping and mowing business for his SAE project, and in 2015, he received the New Jersey State Star in Agribusiness Award. Charles now works at his business full-time, and he shares some of his experiences as a young business owner.

This interview aired on the April 9, 2016 “FFA Today” show on Rural Radio SiriusXM Channel 147.
