The Golden Valley High School FFA will participate in the national FFA dairy foods career development event during the 83rd national FFA convention in Indianapolis from Oct. 20 to 23.
Members of the team are Lauren Scales, Hannah Asbury, Katelyn Montague and Corrine Burgess. The team is coached by Martin McKellips.
Participants will test milk samples for flavor, identify cheese samples as well as score milk sediment pads according to U.S. Department of Agriculture standards. Members will evaluate milk samples using the California mastitis test and will evaluate and score milker unit parts. The participants' knowledge of milk production and marketing is assessed by a written exam.
The event is sponsored by Dairy Farmers of American and the National FFA Foundation.
