Annual agricultural technology contest held at UWRF
April 22, 2016
Seven contests qualified teams to compete in the Wisconsin FFA state contest April 29 in Madison and two of the contests qualified teams to go on to the national contest in October following the 56th Annual Agricultural Technology Contest held April 2 at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.
Nine hundred forty one FFA students representing 66 schools competed during the contest. Students competed individually or in teams selecting from 18 different competitions, including dairy cattle evaluation, forestry, and ag technology and mechanical systems.
The annual contest is coordinated by the Agricultural Education Department, with two students in the lead roles. Tyler Foote, of Brandon, served as the 2016 coordinator and Madeline Bode, of Cassville, served as the assistant coordinator. Faculty, staff and students from across the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences (CAFES) volunteered their time to organize and oversee the individual contests.
