Tri-County FFA Meats Judging Team
Places 6th in Nation

By Travis Scherer
Tri-County FFA meats judging team traveled to Denver, Colorado from
January 7th to January 10th. The team competed in the national meats
judging contest that was in conjunction with Western National 4-H
Roundup and the National Western Stock Show. Tri-County represented
Indiana by placing second last year at the state competition.

Team members were Chance Cochran, Jada Rance, Jordan Stearns and
Ashley Peterson. The team placed beef carcasses, pork carcasses,
hams, pork loin rib chops, beef loins, and beef ribs. They also identified
30 retail meat cuts that you would find in your local grocery meat counter.
They also gave three sets of oral reasons which is the explaining why
how you placed a class to a judge. The team competed at the research
facility of JBS located in Greely, Colorado. JBS is the largest producer
of protein in the world. Along with placing 6th overall, the team placed
third in the nation in oral reasons led by Ashley’s 6th place finish and
Jada’s 8th place finish in oral reasons. The team traveled to University of
Wyoming for a practice contest hosted by their animal science meat lab.
The team took part in the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo and
ate at Denver’s oldest restaurant, the Buckhorn Exchange.





Life Skills News

Life Skills students took one of many outings to the

Remington Post Office to learn about where and how

to pay bills, mail/receive mail or ship boxes. One of the

many lessons the students learn is independence and

the post office could also become a job in the future.

The students also learn about the fundamentals of

sorting, reading, and working with others. Sunny day

brings Life Skills students out to the Memory Garden

during reading class. The students were engaged in

work in a different atmosphere and really enjoyed the

moment.


Successful Farm to School Garden

By Travis Scherer

Last spring with the assistance of a National FFA Food for All Grant, Tri-County FFA members and agriculture

students prepared and planted the school garden. The grant provided plants and supplies while the Agriculture

Technology class tilled and expanded the garden and the Plant and Soil Science class planted and tended the

garden this spring. Adult and student volunteers helped with weeding, harvesting and delivering produce over

the summer to White County Food Pantry, Wolcott United Methodist Church and Good Samaritan Food Pantry.

Over 250 pounds of produce were donated over the summer to the food pantries.

As school began this fall, the Horticulture class and

Landscape Management class tended to the school

garden and harvested over 100 pounds of produce

for the school salad bar and general use in the school

kitchen. Also educational materials will be distributed

to all students in the school corporation over the topics

of healthy eating, gardening and hunger awareness.

Tri-County FFA would like to thank National FFA

for their support of the school garden along with

Monsanto that provided the original grant to begin our

farm to school initiatives.
