On Tuesday March 29, students from the Dawson County High School Future Farmers of America (FFA) group competed in the North Region Area 1 Forestry Field Day.

According to FFA Advisor Keith Pankey, the event consisted of land measurement, timber stand improvement, ocular estimation, diseases and disorders, wildlife management, tree identification, timber cruising for board foot and cord volume, and compass reading. 

“The team placed 10th overall,” Pankey said. “First-time competition Jalen Smith received an event plaque for being the third highest individual in land measurement.”
