Tift County's FFA team won big at a recent poultry event.
The Northeast Tift Co. FFA Poultry Judging Team recently won the State Poultry Judging Contest. The event was held at the Oglethorpe County Ag Center in Crawford, Georgia on March 23, 2013.
The Poultry Judging Career Development Event develops the abilities of students to evaluate poultry products in order to optimize economic returns to producers and industry as well as to meet the needs of consumers.
The event motivates students to become knowledgeable consumers of poultry products. Participants evaluate and place live chickens, identify parts, and grade carcasses and eggs on quality.
Team members include Kassidy Griffin (third high individual), Ashley Jensen (fifth high individual), Abby Mayne (sixth high individual), and David Cheek (tenth high individual).
Carl Nichols is the Northeast FFA advisor.
