Juniors and seniors from the Dawson County High School Future Farmers of America (FFA) club recently competed in the state-level of a wildlife management and dairy evaluation competition. 

According to FFA Advisor Keith Pankey, students in the club did well overall, winning several individual and team titles ranging from 5th to 11th. 

“The wildlife team placed eighth, with Cort Shelnutt scoring as the 10th high individual in the event,” Pankey said. “The senior dairy team placed 11th. The junior dairy evaluation team placed fifth overall with Chase Cofield placing as the seventh high individual in the junior division.” 

Pankey said that making it to the state level of the competition and doing as well as they did is an accomplishment that the FFA students can be proud of. 

“The students worked very hard to make it to the state events and did very well in competing,” Pankey said.
