Back-to-Back Ag Sales Champions!

Members of the Castleford FFA Chapter recently won the state Agriculture Sales Career Development Event.  For this event, students had to sell an agricultural-based product to a panel of judges who scored participants upon their interactions and ability to meet customers’ needs and wants. Team members, left to right, were Makaela Scott, Charlie Cornie, Jade Etelu, and Lindsey Drinkall. Scott placed 1st high individual in the state for Telephone Skills. Cornie placed  2nd high individual in the state for Sales A. Etelu placed 1st high individual in the state for Sales B. Drinkall placed 4th high individual in the state for Customer Prospecting. Team members will be representing the state of Idaho at the National FFA Convention this fall in Indianapolis, Indiana, where they will compete to win the national title. **This is the second year in a row that the Castleford FFA Chapter has won the state Agricultural Sales contest and the second year in a row that it will compete at the national level.**

FFA Dairy Judging

The Castleford FFA Chapter recently won the Idaho Dairy Invitational held in conjunction with State Leadership Conference held at the College of Southern Idaho. For this event, students had to evaluate various classes of dairy cattle, place them, and then present sets of oral reasons on their placing to several judges. Team members, left to right, were Benjen Lilly, Eden Schilder, Julia Lilly, and Carter Schilder. Eden Schilder placed 2nd high individual overall and Benjen Lilly placed 6th high individual overall.
This contest also served as the South Magic Valley FFA District Dairy Judging Contest, which the above team won as well. Eden Schilder was 1st high individual in the district, Benjen Lilly placed 3rd high individual, Carter Schilder placed 6th high individual, Jamie Zimmers placed 8th high individual, and Nick Drinkall placed 10th high individual in the district.

State FFA Degrees

Members of the Castleford FFA Chapter Abigale Hale (left) and Lindsey Drinkall (far right) recently earned their Idaho State FFA Degrees. This is the highest award the state FFA organization can award its members. Students are able to earn this degree by building upon their supervised agriculture experience, or SAE. Hale’s SAE consists of showing dairy heifers at the county fair and working on the family farm. Drinkall’s SAE consists of working on her family farm as well, where she helps raise and maintain a herd of beef cattle.

Congratulations Abigale and Lindsey!
