FFA Excels at Regional Competition

This past weekend twelve members of the Milford High School FFA chapter traveled to Springfield, MA to compete at the Big E (Eastern States Exposition). They competed in a variety of CDE’s, career development events, including Milk Quality and Products, Livestock Evaluation, and Dairy Evaluation. In order to be eligible to compete at Big E the students must have first competed at the state level, either at the FFA state convention or at the Delaware State Fair, and won either first or second place depending on the competition. Each individual or team is representing Delaware in their specific event.

The Livestock Evaluation team, consisting of Harley Lardner, Allie Davis, Alison Nordberg, and Julia Adams took second place in the northeast. In this competition, the students had to judge beef cattle, sheep, and pigs. Each member also had to take a written test. Harley Lardner took fourth individually, Allie Davis took sixth individually, and Alison Nordberg took ninth individually.

The Milk Quality and Products team, consisting of Brianna Reynolds, Victoria Donovan, Hali Sapp, and Jon Walls took fifth. They are required to take a written test and to taste a variety of milks and chesses to determine the identification of each. They also had a written exam and a team activity.

The Dairy Evaluation team came in sixth. This team was made up of Jacob Smith, Taylor Wessel, Miranda Walker, and Ashlyn Welch. In this competition, the students had to judge dairy cows and heifers on various body confirmation aspects. They also had a team activity to complete.
