Tipton FFA & 4-H Experience Success at Fall Career Development Events
Members of the Tipton FFA and 4-H showed their skills and knowledge in a variety of career development events this fall including Milk Products Evaluation, Meats Evaluation, Livestock Skillathon and Horticulture.
The Milk Quality and Products participants identify cheese, off flavors in milk, dairy versus imitation dairy products, problem solve, and complete a knowledge exam.
Both middle and high school members of the Tipton FFA, as well as Tipton 4-H members, competed in the Area VIII Livestock Skillathon Career Development Event at the Cass County Fairgrounds in Logansport on September 17th. Livestock Skill-a-thon includes items such as: a livestock industry quiz, a quality assurance scenario, equipment identification, meat identification (species, primal cut, retail cut and cookery method), Breed identification (sheep, swine, goats and beef cattle), and feedstuff identification.
The Tipton FFA Meats Evaluation team had a very successful experience by placing in the top 10 at the State Meats Career Development Event at Purdue University on Saturday, September, 18. The purpose of the Meats CDE is to allow members to demonstrate mastery skills in the areas of identification and evaluation, allowing for students to be more knowledgeable consumers of meat and meat products. Members completed carcass evaluations, meat identification and placing classes. Thank you to Justin Johnson for giving of his time and efforts to lead the meats team this year!
Members participating in the Horticulture C.D.E. identified fruits, vegetables, ornamental plants, and flowers. They also completed a horticulture industry knowledge exam. This is the first time that Tipton FFA has competed in this contest and they are excited to see members learn more using the greenhouse this spring.
The Tipton FFA Milk Products team placed in the top 10 at the state contest.
The Tipton FFA Meats team placed in the top 10 at the state contest.
