Over the past 20 years, Preston High School FFA advisor Larin Crossley has seen a lot of animals raised by students for Supervised Agriculture Experiment work. He has seen students raise the biggest bulls, boars or lambs they could find.

He said he has even seen students raise dogs. But this year he has someone who decided to raise fish (tiny guppies) for their SAE.

Savanah (Baber) Salvesen participates in FFA at Preston High School and she needed to do a project with live animals.

“We don’t have enough land to raise animals,” she said. “We looked into it and found tropical fish could be used. So that’s what we decided to do for my SAE,” said the 16 year old.
