COLUMBIA, Mo., April 22, 2022 – The Halfway FFA Chapter won the dairy foods career development event at the 94th Missouri FFA Convention. There were 50 teams in the competition.

The team members include Isaac Ingram, Rea Spear, Brayden Doke and Katie Howard. Ingram placed third, Spear placed fourth, Doke placed 27th and Howard placed 82nd out of 190 participants. The Halfway FFA advisor is Jeff Voris.

The participants in the competition taste-test milk samples for flavor, identify 14 different types of cheese, and use a scoring system to test milk products according to USDA standards. The hands-on portion of the event is combined with an intensive written examination.

Sponsored by University of Missouri College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, this CDE is one way the FFA prepares student members for career success. CDEs engage students in learning and make a real connection to lifetime goals.
