On Saturday, March 12th, the MT FFA chapter held its annual invitational and District 9 Career Development Event Judging Contest at the Fayette Co. Fair Grounds. Chapters from all traveled to the fairgrounds so that members could compete in their specialized areas. The contest covered agronomy, dairy cattle, dairy products, equine management, general livestock, and poultry.
The contest required a big effort and a lot of extra hours from all involved. Miami Trace students who weren’t competing worked the show rings, administrated tests, and gave instructions.
Miami Trace placed as following in each contest of the invitational:
- Agronomy: 3rd of 15
- Dairy Cattle: 3rd of 21
- Equine Management: 11th of 41
- General Livestock: 4th of 55
- Poultry: 4th of 29
A special thank you to the following people and organizations who generously donated resources and time to the contest: Southern State Community College, Laurence Smith, Real McCoy Genetics, Wilmington College, Kay Tracy, Don Calendar, Casey Smith, Jason Bihl, All-N-One 4-H Club, Raejean Robinette and everyone else who helped out at the contest.
Congratulations to all participants, and thank you to all who worked diligently to make this year’s contest a success!
