North Iredell High school FFA members recently competed in the regional cattle working contest.
During the competition, FFA members are required to identify beef cattle breeds, feeds, and animal husbandry equipment and then take a knowledge test regarding cattle.
FFA members also take the Beef Quality Assurance certification test. Beef Quality assurance is a national program that raises consumer confidence through offering proper management techniques and a commitment to quality within every segment of the beef industry.
Students put knowledge into action by working cattle per BQA standards. All NIHS students earned BQA certification.
The FFA members representing NIHS were:
♦ Team 1: Logan Crisp, Soleil Steeb, Paxton Cook
♦ Team 2: Dalton Jordan, Chase Dobson, Alleigh Johnson
♦ Team 3: Lane Barnette, Hunter Sipes, Wyatt Cline
Teams 2 & 3 will represent the region at the state contest in the spring.
