SAE Info

A Supervised Agricultural Experience Project (SAE) is the actual, hands-on application of concepts and principles learned in the agricultural education classroom.  Each student is required to complete and maintain records for a minimum of 30 hours on an SAE Project. The different types of SAE projects that you can complete are outlined below.   

 Entrepreneurship:

Complete hands-on work on a project that relates to agriculture to develop their skills and experience. The student can provide a service, such as a lawn care business, or develop a product, such as an animal project. They must invest in the supplies and equipment needed or have them provided, and track their time and expenses and/or income. Examples include: Raising a garden, market chickens, or operating a small landscaping business. 

 Placement:

Work for someone else either for pay or on a volunteer basis to gain experience (think of it like an internship). The student will keep records of time put in, any income they earn, and skills they develop. Examples include: Working at a local farm, market, home or other agribusinesses. 

 Research:

Conduct an experiment related to agriculture (much like a science fair project). Propose a hypothesis to explore and then record observations, time spent, and materials used in your record book.

 Improvement:

Usually involve home or community work. They may be group or individual projects that contribute to the agricultural knowledge and/or skill of a student, and are usually unpaid. Examples include: constructing livestock pens, landscaping the home, renovating a lawn, or volunteering at a farmer’s market.
