Centre FFA members judge dairy

On November 15, members of the Centre FFA chapter traveled to McPherson to participate in South Central District dairy career development events.

Members competing in milk quality and products identified cheeses by sight and taste and categorized them based upon their characteristics. They also sampled milk and milk products and identified them by flavor, fat content, and CMT levels. They took a written test over milk production and marketing. The senior team comprised of KJ Hudson and Athena Salamone completed a problem solving practice.

The 11 greenhands placed 6th as a team and included Cailey Barney, Samantha Engler, Dakota Gardner, Montana Hayes, Elias Jirak, Dillon Knepp, Lane Methvin, Tyler Nickel, Cecilia Rziha, Cameron Spohn, and Lacey Wingerd.

A senior team competed in dairy cattle evaluation. They took a test over the dairy cattle industry and then placed six classes of dairy cattle and gave two sets of reasons. Team members were Cole Srajer, who placed 6th individually, Payton Harms, Austin Peterson, and Jensen Riffel.
