The Mead FFA Chapter recently traveled to Waverly to compete in land judging. The event was coordinated by McKenzie Barry from Lower Platte South NRD. 147 area Agricultural Education students, making up 40 teams, participated in the event.

In land judging, a student must determine the depth of a soil’s topsoil and subsoil. They must also calculate erosion, slope, permeability and surface texture of the soil.  After deciding the soil’s characteristics, a student must determine the land capability class of the soil and select recommended land treatments for that particular soil. This is done to four different sections of land.

Leading the way and receiving a purple ribbon for the Mead FFA Chapter was Jacob Felty who placed 9th overall. With this top ten finish, Felty qualified for state land judging in Scottsbluff. June Johnson, Dylan Taylor, and McKenna Holloway received a blue ribbon. Caleb Dickes was the only member who received a red ribbon. White ribbons went to Evan Halbmeier, Aiden Mongan, Michael Slobodnik, Ana Leise, and Mary Linscomb.

Mead also had a team that placed eighth overall. Team members were June Johnson, Ana Leise, and McKenna Holloway.

Also participating for Mead was: Cole Zima, Jayden Haag, Chance Anderson, Josh Quinn, Cassie Tweedy, Miranda Mueller, Zane Anderson, Zach Pickworth, and John Popken.
