Future Farmers Of America is what is was called in H.S. in the 90's.
Honestly, the courses that you take in high school are unlikely to be directly relevant for veterinary school. Take the courses that will get you into a good undergraduate program, which is the prerequisite for getting into veterinary school. It certainly would not hurt to take plenty of biology and chemistry classes, including AP classes if they are available. You might also want to take economics classes. Being a vet requires learning biology, but being a successful veterinarian usually means being able to run your own business. All of the veterinary schools clearly post their requirements for admissions on their website, and you should consult that website before you decide what courses to take when you are in college. Requirements are pretty similar between schools, but make sure that you definitely meet the requirements at your state school.
