The DeSoto Senior FFA is kicking off a very eventful year. From the successful Agriculture Education program to the highly awarded FFA Chapter, FFA is opening doors to opportunities that may have seemed unimaginable. Some of the latest endeavors include learning tractor safety skills, show stock knowledge, cow-calf operations, general equipment safety procedure courses, and a new therapeutic laser. The program prides itself on premier leadership, personal growth, and career success.

The FFA program recently received a new piece of equipment, approved by Superintendent Karyn Gary: the Pegasus Companion Therapy Laser, manufactured by Litecure. This laser produces both pain-free healing and assistance with site damage for animals, andwill prove beneficial in the community. As Bio-Tech, Ag. Tech, and Animal Science students, FFA members are learning about photo-biomodulation, as well as the necessary skills to maintain and manage agribusiness operations and affairs. Photo-biomodulation is the therapeutic use of a low-level infrared laser that amplifies light energy emitted as radiant energy for absorption into tissues used to enhance wound healing and pain management after musculoskeletal injury.
