Recently the Mowrystown FFA has been working hard on multiple CDEs and participating in contests. Most recently the chapter participated in the state contests.
On Saturday April 2, the Mowrystown FFA members participated in the State Livestock and State Equine Judging contests.

The equine judging team placed 26th in the state with members Faith Lane, Brianna Purvis, Emily Feck, Cole Pharo, and Amber Klump.
For the first time ever, Mowrystown also had a middle school livestock judging team. The middle school team placed eighth in the state with members Cora Gillespie, Baylee Carey and Cylee Bratton.
This past weekend the Mowrystown FFA Dairy Judging team participated in the state contest. It has been many years since the Mowrystown FFA has had a dairy judging team and the chapter couldn’t be more proud of the results. The high school team placed 17th in the state and the middle school team placed 2nd in the state. The high school team consisted of members Brianna Purvis, Caitlin Frazer, Faith Brunck, Zach DeAtley, MaKayla Risner, Audrey Ferguson and Michael Crowe. The middle school team consisted of Baylee Carey who was second in the state individually, Cora Gillespie who was fourth in the state individually, Brayden Yeager who was seventh in the state individually, Clay Risner who was eighth in the state individually, and Maddison Berkley who was 10th in the state individually.
Mowrystown FFA members Maggie Carr and Atlee Carr participated in the State Dairy Handlers contest in Wooster. During the contest both gave their all and in the end it payed off. Carr placed seventh in the state and Maggie placed second. Carr will be moving on to the Big E this fall to represent Ohio and the Mowrystown FFA.
