Everyone did an amazing job, especially Chase Hamilton, placing third in novice hog showmanship, Anthony Duran placing fifth in advanced hog showmanship, and Bianca Dyer Gonzalez getting first place in the Novice Goat Showmanship plus Reserve FFA Champion Goat.
On Thursday, Aug. 18, the Lamb and cattle show commenced. During the sheep show everyone gave it their all, But Riley Hurst’s efforts paid off when she got first Place in Novice Sheep Showmanship. When it came to the Cattle show, Montana Maggenti won Champion Breeding Heifer. Winters FFA had two amazing showmen participate in master showmanship on Friday. Hurst and Dyer Gonzalez did an amazing job showing steer, lambs, pigs and goats.
On Sunday the results were announced: Dyer Gonzalez got third and Hurst got fourth. Saturday, Aug. 20 was the Livestock and Ag Mechanics auction.
Thanks to the generosity and support of our community, all our students were very successful. The Winters FFA chapter is proud of all members who raised animals this summer and showed them over the week.
