No FFA meeting in January. At our February 1st meeting, we will discuss everything NETLA...show dates and times, any covid restrictions, raffle tickets, weighing animals, clipping animals, selecting broiler pens. This is parents' opportunity to get all the information that you need about the NETLA show. MASKS WILL BE REQUIRED.
FFA Christmas Party
Broiler Pick-Up Day
What does your animal weigh?
We will have a weigh day when we return from Christmas break for lambs, goats and pigs. You need to weigh your animals at the beginning of January to make sure they are on track for the NETLA show.
NETLA Dairy Classic Validation
Livestock judging is a process of evaluating, selecting, placing, and learning the various livestock species–beef cattle, sheep, goats and swine.
We will start Livestock Judging practice when we return from Christmas break on Wednesdays after school from 3:30-4:30 pm. Livestock judging is open to all FFA members and Jr FFA members.
Feb 20th - San Angelo Livestock Judging Contest (open to all members)
March & April CDE Contests for high school members.
Dairy judging is a process of evaluating, selecting, placing, and learning about dairy cattle while having fun and developing other skills such as public speaking and critical thinking.
We will start Dairy Judging practice when we return from Christmas break. A date has not been decided yet. Although there are not any dairy judging contests posted right now, dairy judging practice is open to all FFA members and Jr FFA members. If a Jr FFA member is interested in dairy cattle or dairy judging, they are welcome to join.
March & April CDE Contests are available for high school members.
