INDIANAPOLIS — Marmaton Valley High School’s FFA chapter was well represented at the National FFA Milk Quality and Products Career Development Event.

Winners were announced Nov. 1 at the annual awards banquet, held in conjunction with the 92nd National FFA Convention and Expo in Indianpolis.

Marmaton Valley took 10th nationally, good to earn a gold emblem as a team.

Individuals Hannah Dahl and Allison Heim placed in the gold division individually; Austin Gardner and Haylee Meiwes were in the silver division.

The National FFA Milk Quality and Products CDE is a competitive event that allows students to prove their knowledge about the recognition, selection and management necessary for quality milk and dairy products. Participants must complete a written exam on milk production and marketing, evaluate milk samples for flavor and quality, identify cheeses and characteristics and complete milk acceptability tests in the team activity. Each team competed at local and state levels to earn the privilege to represent their state at the national events.

The milk quality and products CDE is sponsored by Culver’s and Dairy Farmers of America.

The students were under the direction of adviser Jacque Gabbert.
