Houston FFA places at State Contest Day
STARKVILLE – After a rough and very early morning due to the weather and no power on April 4, 20 Houston FFA members competed at the Mississippi FFA State Contest Day held at Mississippi State University.
All six teams from Houston placed in the top ten. Of those, two teams came home with a trophy and plaque.
The Jr. Poultry Evaluation team are the state champions. The Jr. Poultry Evaluation team judged the interior and exterior quality of eggs and chicken carcases. These members also had to grade the eggs and carcases.
The Agronomy team brought home second place again. The Agronomy contest consists of identifying seeds, crops and weeds, a test and a presentation on wheat.
Both Jr. and Sr. Dairy Evaluation teams placed fourth in the State. In the Dairy Evaluation contest, teams must judge a set of Holstein or Jersey Dairy cattle and give oral reasons on their placings.
The Floriculture team placed fourth as well. In the Floriculture contest, members complete a plant identification test and make a corsage and centerpiece arrangement.
Lastly, the Farm Business Management team placed tenth in the state. During the Farm Business Management contest, members must complete a test on accounting procedures and business structure.
