Sun Valley FFA Chapter Places Third in the NC FFA Junior Dairy Evaluation Event
Salisbury, NC- The Sun Valley FFA Chapter participated in the 2014 North Carolina FFA State Junior Dairy Evaluation Development Event on November 20, in Rowan County, North Carolina. Team members were Noah Adamczyk, Manny Alvarez, Allison Neely, and Grace Anna Perkins. Their FFA Advisor is Dale Cochran.
At the state event, participants were scored based on how well they apply dairy cattle evaluation skills learned in the classroom. Each team evaluated 8 classes of dairy cattle and defended the reasoning behind their evaluations to a judge. Completing these activities successfully requires a good understanding of both animal science and herd management skills.
The top three teams and high scoring individual will be recognized during the 87th North Carolina FFA State Convention in Raleigh on June 16-18, 2105. The event is one of 43 different career development events offered to North Carolina FFA members on the state level. The North Carolina Dairy Youth Foundation sponsors the North Carolina FFA Association Dairy Evaluation Career Development Event.
