Miami Trace FFA hosts annual spring judging contest

Contributed by Meri Grace Carson

On Saturday, March 11th, the MT FFA Chapter, a satellite program of Great Oaks, held its annual invitational and District 9 Career Development Event Judging Contest at the Fayette County Fairgrounds. Chapters from all over the state of Ohio traveled to the fairgrounds so that members could compete in their specialized areas. A total number of 870 students came and competed at the fairgrounds in several different events. The contest events covered agronomy, dairy cattle, milk quality products, equine management, general livestock, and poultry evaluation.

The contest required a lot of effort and many extra hours from all involved. Miami Trace FFA members participated by competing, working the show rings, administering tests, and giving instructions to those students competing.

The Miami Trace FFA placed as following in the invitational contest areas:

  • Agronomy: 5th of 14
  • Agronomy Middle School: 1st of 4
  • Dairy Cattle: 7th of 27
  • Equine Management: 18th of 45
  • General Livestock: 30th of 69

The Chapter would like to extend a special thank you to the following organizations and people who generously by donating resources and time to the contest: Dusty Bohl, Davidson Family, Don Quallen, Climer Family, Wes Montgomery, David Carr, Fayette County Senior Fairboard, OSU Poultry Club, Bob Seiven, Dave Snyder, Jeff Bennett, Southern State Community College, Real McCoy Genetics, Jeremy Etzler, Buckeye Illini Genetics, Cummings Cattle, The Ohio State Judging Team, Kay Tracy, Don Calendar, BJ Jackson, Brock Wilt, Blake Bradshaw, MMIH Farms, Samantha  Ritenour, All-N-One 4-H Club, 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!
