Sun Valley High FFA Chapter Participates in State Poultry Event
The Sun Valley High FFA Chapter participated in the North Carolina FFA Poultry Evaluation Career Development Event on April 1, 2015, at NC State Fairgrounds, Raleigh, NC. Team members include Noah Adamczyk, Allyson Neely, Sierra Simmerman, and Emily Rogers. Sun Valley placed 6th out of 77 teams, and Sierra Simmerman received the 5th highest score in the entire competition.
During this event students evaluated production, processing, and merchandising phases of the poultry industry as well as identify various industry components. Students are also tested on the application of sound management practices. Teams evaluate live birds, present oral reasons, and place a class of ready-to-cook broilers. In the processing and merchandising phase of the event, students selected and graded ready-to-cook turkeys, and processed products and cartons of eggs.
