Home Schools Jr. Sr. High School Fairbury FFA Chapter Sends Six Teams to Land Judging Contest

Fairbury FFA Chapter Sends Six Teams to Land Judging Contest

On Wednesday, October 4th the Fairbury FFA Chapter took four teams to the Southeast District Land Judging Contest by Tecumseh, Nebraska. The contest was a great learning experience for all of the FFA members who went.  This contest teaches students the value of soil and the use of each land capability class.  It also teaches students what land treatments should be applied to the land in each class.  The day consisted of walking through fields and getting their hands dirty as they try to find the soil texture and the permeability of the soil in each of the soil pits. 
Ashley Griffee and Taylor Runge Received a Red Ribbon while Jason Hughes, Sara Huss, and Konnor Hasselbring received a white ribbon.  The goal for next year is for Fairbury FFA to send a team to the State Land Judging Contest.    This experience will be very valuable to these members.
