A member of the Caney Creek Junior FFA and a student at Moorhead Junior High, Kylie Jones, made the Montgomery County Fair Auction with her pin of broilers. She and her family worked diligently for 6 weeks to raise her birds to market weight. There were almost 90 students who competed and Kylie was awarded 5th place and her sister Emily Jones who attends Creighton Elementary won 13th place. Both girls were able to sell their birds at the fair auction last Wednesday night and Kylie was awarded a $1,200 scholarship. Join us as we celebrate Kylie's success and the results of modern age agriculture.
