On Saturday, April 6, NYA FFA had four students take part in FFA contests at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls for valuable practice experience.
Kahlie Kroells and Cayla Cochran judged horses, Cole Sauter took part in the wildlife contest and Mariah Ogden was in the veterinary science event. The highlight of the day was the chapter’s power tool drag racing event entry, which finished first in the contest. The task was to make a racer out of an angle grinder and finish the closest to the set target time of 3.14 seconds. NYA’s entry had a run of 3.09 seconds and took 1st place.
Other highlights in the results included Cochran finishing 23rd of 88 horse judging students and Sauter placing 36th out of 96 wildlife competitors. Now the chapter’s focus is turning to preparations for the Minnesota State FFA Convention, which will be held April 28-30.
