Sun Valley FFA reaches Top 10 in dairy evaluation
INDIAN TRAIL – The Sun Valley High School Future Farmers of America team placed 10th out of 63 teams recently at the 2012 North Carolina FFA State Dairy Evaluation Career Development Event in Rowan County.
Teams were scored on how well they apply dairy cattle evaluation skills learned in the classroom. Each team evaluated six classes of dairy cattle and defended its reasoning behind each evaluation to a panel of judges. Students also completed a written test and worked collaboratively to select appropriate herd composition, requiring a good understanding of both animal science and herd management skills.
The Sun Valley team is composed of Lizzie Letteer, Kiersten Peck, Hannah Covington and Savannah Hipp.
