Drummond students busy with contests

ENID, Okla. — January has been a month full of contests for Drummond FFA members.

On Jan. 21, they went to the Autry Technology Center interscholastic contest, where we competed in animal science, ag mechanics and opening ceremonies. The animal science team, consisting of Tyler Messall, Jennifer Swart, Miles Shaddy and McKenna Morrison, placed first. The ag mechanics team, which included Clayton Mack, Kaleb Cain, Scott Rodenberg and Conner Solomon, also placed first. Kaleb Cain placed first as an individual, Clayton Mack placed third, and Scott Rodenberg placed seventh. The opening ceremonies team of Jacob Earl, Caleb Earl, Brittney Miller, Emily Perry, Tara Crider, Steffen Singleton and Mr. Dillingham placed first as well.

On Jan. 23, several members traveled to Tonkawa for the Northern Oklahoma College interscholastic contest. Kaleb Cain, Clayton Mack, Scott Rodenberg and Conner Solomon again competed in the ag mechanics division. Emiley Shell, Tyler Morrison and Kaitlin Colleary competed as a team in the meat judging division.

On Jan. 30, Clayton Mack competed in the Northwest District Livestock Judging Contest.

One upcoming event for Drummond FFA is the annual trophy sale. All proceeds from this sale go toward FFA and 4-H members who show livestock at the local show. Also at the sale, the chapter will have a metal art silent auction. Members, along with Mr. Dillingham, have been working hard on the plasma cam, designing pieces for the auction.

On Feb. 14, Drummond FFA archery team will compete in Oklahoma City at the regional archery tournament. The team consists of Kaitlin Colleary, Alex Cornell, Westin Henneke, Tyler Hudson, Cameron Pogue, Emiley Shell, Chambrea Cook, Justin Meier, Jessica Rehmel, Steffen Singleton, Jacob Earl, Anthony Foley, Thomas Moore, Dalton Terry, Brady Kokojan and Trevor Wilson.

  • Jeff Bedwell Consider safety of forage beforehand

    Drought conditions of the past three to four years and in particular the past eight months had hay/forage inventories at critically low levels. The most recent period ranked as the third-driest period in recorded history. Not unlike the farmers and ranchers of other times of drought, ag producers now have been very resourceful to not only replace hay supplies that have dwindled but also add much-needed revenue to farm income.

  • Right to Farm web 1.jpg Ag industry seeks right to farm

    The emerging battle could have lasting repercussions for the nation’s food supply and for the millions of people worldwide who depend on U.S. agricultural exports. It’s also possible the right-to-farm idea could sputter as a merely symbolic gesture that carries little practical effect beyond driving up voter turnout in local elections.
