Deerfield FFA took four students to compete in Dairy Judging at Royal Dairy. Bladyn Long, Michael Garcia, Trey Hill, and Levi Greer competed. They competed against 108 other students from the SW District in the junior division. As a team, they got 15th overall, and Levi was 17th overall individual. “The kids stepped out of their comfort zone, competing in something they had never done before, learning new skills, and gained new experiences with judging and giving reasons,” commented Ag Teacher Lauren Hastings. The kids are excited about future competitions! This is the first year for the new Ag program in USD 216 and an FFA Chapter.
