Congratulations to the Mineral Point FFA Livestock Judging team of Morgan Fitzsimmons, Scott Pittz, Boone Schmitz and Martina Steffes for winning the State FFA Livestock Judging contest on Friday, April 29th.
Morgan placed 1st, Scott 3rd, Boone 4th, and Martina 11th as individuals. They outscored the 2nd place team by almost 200 points.
They will move on to National competition in October at the National FFA Convention. This contest involved 11 different livestock classes, grading of animals and oral reasons. There were 40 teams at the State competition totaling 160 individuals. Congratulations on being State champions!
The Vet Science team of Tommie Loken, Tea Bossert, Katie Fitzsimmons, and Jake Steffes placed 21st at State FFA Career Development events. This contest is based on veterinary practices and animal information. It is a very tightly scored contest with only a few points separating each team and individual.
The Wildlife team of Brady Roberts, Jacob Moellers, Jacob Sullivan, and Austin Olson placed 23rd at State FFA Career Development events with Brady placing 11th individually at State. This contest is based on wildlife identification and a test on wildlife knowledge. Again this is a very tightly scored contest with only a few points separating each team and individual.
Congratulations to the three teams and good luck to the Livestock team as they prepare for Nationals in October in Indianapolis at the National FFA Convention.
