The community of Olathe, Colo., would like to share this great achievement that Olathe FFA Livestock Evaluation Team was awarded back in October of 2010. Olathe FFA is lead by Erin Franks.
Olathe FFA Livestock Evaluation Team received Silver Emblem honors at 2010 National FFA Livestock Evaluation Career Development Event (CDE). The contest was held October 20-21 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis, Ind., in conjunction with the 83rd National FFA Convention.
After nine months of hard work, the Olathe FFA livestock evaluation team earned high honors in Indianapolis. Jeananne Mosher, Hubert Kimberlin, Kaitlin Nicolas, and Fallon Flick, competed against 42 other state champion teams. Olathe FFA’s team was one of the youngest teams in the competition with three sophomores and one junior. They competed against a lot of high school seniors and college freshman.
The National FFA Livestock CDE is a competitive activity that tests the student’s ability to select and evaluate livestock. Event components include eight evaluation classes of beef, sheep, swine, and goats; oral placement reasons on four classes (Market Lambs, Performance Angus Bulls, Breeding Heifers, and Breeding Swine); and a written exam on livestock production. A team event, based on production performance records, demonstrates the team’s breeding livestock selection ability. Each team in the event competed at local and state levels for the privilege of representing their state at the national FFA convention.
