Banner Year for the Arcanum MVCTC FFA Dairy Judging Team

Members of the Arcanum MVCTC FFA Dairy Judging Team were (L to R) Samantha McAllister, Taryn Dohme, Sidney McAllister and Alex Weiss.
The Arcanum MVCTC FFA Dairy Judging Team consisting of Alexander Weiss, Sidney McAllister, Samantha McAllister and Taryn Dohme place 2nd in the State of Ohio in FFA Dairy Judging Contest with member Alex Weiss taking top honors as an individual.

The Prelims Dairy Judging Contest took place during the Ohio Dairy Expo on April 1st. During that contest the members completed the live evaluation of 4 classes of dairy cattle, answered objective questions about the classes, completed a pedigree evaluation class and a sire selection class. Coming out the prelims the team was in 2nd place in the state which qualified them for the State Finals on April 28th. During the State Finals held at the Waterman Dairy Farm on the Campus of The Ohio State University the students completed live evaluations on 3 classes where they would make observations that they would use for the presentation of oral reasons for their places. At the conclusion of the finals the team from Arcanum ended up in 2nd place overall with Alex Weiss placing first overall as an individual. The team will be awarded a banner from the Ohio FFA and Alex will be recognized on stage at the Ohio FFA State Convention. 

By placing 2nd the team is qualified to represent the Ohio FFA at the World Dairy Expo in Madison Wisconsin.
