FFA teams advance to state competitions
Springfield FFA members traveled to Pipestone on Dec. 18 when they participated in the regional Milk Quality and Parliamentary Procedure competitions. Both teams qualified for state competition that will take place in April.
In the Milk Quality competition, team members have to identify cheeses, know the fat content in various dairy products, identify potential contaminants in milk, tell the difference between dairy and non-dairy products, and apply general knowledge of the dairy product industry. Team members are pictured, from left: Carter Hillesheim, Maddie McCone, Ryan Sanderville, and James Coffland. Ryan Sanderville placed 10th individually.
In the FFA Parliamentary Procedure competition, the team conducts a condensed meeting using proper meeting rules. Each team member fills an officer position and they make proper motions and have detail discussion on each item of business.
