Dairy Evaluation Team Wins NC FFA State Competition
The Piedmont FFA Chapter’s Dairy Evaluation team won the NC FFA State Competition in May 2021, and are advancing to the National FFA Convention. The National FFA Convention is being held in Indianapolis, IN. the last week of October 2021. The team members were Hayley Christenberry, Sallie Parker, Ruth Valerio, and Haley Hardin. The State Dairy Evaluation competition is a series of events where students have to evaluate dairy cattle on their physical appearance, while also stating why they placed cattle in a particular sequence through Oral Reasons. There is also a knowledge portion of the dairy industry, processes, and products, as well as the team activity where team members evaluate reproduction data and make recommendations on what reproduction practices to utilize. Best of Luck to this team as they advance to Nationals and represent Piedmont High School, Union County, and NC FFA Association.
