WELCOME TO THE NEW AND IMPROVED AG FARM...The Friona High School FFA program was the recipient of improved animal sheds recently. JEM Services, LLC was enlisted by a group of investors to design and remodel the existing buildings at the Ag Farm east of Friona. The updates are providing protection from the elements and a place where the students can work with their animals. The students were also included in the construction.
