The following is an update on a few things going on with FFA and some of the success we have been having:
Career Development Event News
Farm Business Management Team (Hannah Miller, Noah Martel, Erika Maldonado, Mason Ward, Lupita Melgarejo)
The FFA Farm Business Management Team traveled to Tifton on Friday to compete in the State contest. They placed 5th out of 125 teams in the state this year.
I have had some questions on what exactly is Farm Business Management and I think Noah Martel described it best..."economics on steroids"!
Thank you for supporting our FFA Chapter!
Livestock Judging Junior Team (AnnaMaria Ramsey, Coy Seay, Josh Gentry, Juan Zepeda) Finished fourth (out of 28 teams) in area on Tuesday only missing state by 6 points. This was their first time ever competing in this event and many of the other schools have been competing since 6 grade because of middle school programs.
Livestock Judging Senior Team (Victor Garcia, Michael Lucio, Douglas King, Beatriz Gonzalez)
12th in area out of 29 teams
Ag Sales Career Development Event (Destiny Garcia, Victor Garcia, Jake Llwellyn, Pedro Lemus)
3rd in area and missed going to state by 1 position.
Market Hog Team
We have 15 hogs being shown this year for SHS, making it the largest number by a large margin. They start showing next weekend and continue through the end of February.
