The Springville FFA Chapter attended the annual State FFA Convention in Logan, Utah. When the Springville Chapter arrived in Logan, they were able to go on farm tours, that are owned by Utah State University and operated by the college students attending there.

r

The first farm tour was at the Caine Dairy farm, where the students were able to learn how the cows are treated and how the robotic milking machines work. The second farm tour was at the horse farm, which has a veterinarian’s office on the property. The students were able to see horses and their colts. They were also able to learn about the goats and sheep that have been genetically modified for research.

r

After the tours were over, the chapter headed over to the workshops on the college campus. There, the students would choose two of the many workshop options that were available for them. The workshops focused on building strong leaders.

During state convention, the chapter won many awards and had many members compete. The chapter took second in the Conduct of Chapter Meetings contest! In this contest, the team members demonstrated their knowledge about Parliamentary Procedure and FFA Opening and Closing Ceremonies. Kameron Talbot took second place in the Farm Bureau Discussion Meet and was part of the talent during the sessions. James Cope won a Proficiency award in Agriculture Processing and will represent our chapter at a national level. Jaynee Giffing ran for state office and was chosen as the third runner up in the Star State in Agribusiness award.

r

Our members enjoyed listening to the speakers during the various sessions. They were inspired as they listened to the Utah State FFA Officers deliver their retiring addresses. They laughed as they enjoyed listening to Clint Pulver tell his story and then impress us with an amazing drum performance! And each student left with a desire to be better leaders in our home chapter and school! Overall, all made new friends and had fun.
