Southern Alamance High School’s FFA chapter participated in the N.C. FFA Poultry Evaluation Career Development Event on March 21 at the state fairgrounds in Raleigh. Team members, from left, Sabrina Henry, Taylor Hook, Zoe Watkins and Kandace Pike placed 16th in the state out of 77 teams across North Carolina. The FFA adviser is Tasha Dawson. The team advanced from 46th place last year. Students evaluated the production, processing and merchandising phases of the poultry industry and identified various industry components. Students are tested also on the application of sound management practices. Participants evaluated live birds, present oral reasons, and place a class of ready-to-cook broilers. In the processing and merchandising phase, students selected and graded ready-to-cook turkeys, processed products and eggs.
