Oct 31, 2015

LOUISVILLE- Winners of the National FFA Poultry Evaluation Career Development Event (CDE) were announced on Friday at the annual awards banquet. The event was held in conjunction with the 88th National FFA Convention & Expo in Louisville, Ky. Mr. Richard Roller of Missouri served as superintendent of this year\'s event.

The Prairie View FFA Chapter placed sixth as a team.  Team members included Ted Chambers, Taylor McAtee, and Stephanie Silvers who received gold emblem rankings and Tatum Troutman who received a silver emblem ranking.

The top ten individuals and the national winning team members received cash awards to recognize their success in the event. The cash awards and the poultry evaluation event are sponsored by

Newly Weds Foods, Tyson Foods, Inc. and U.S. Poultry & Egg Association as a special project of the

National FFA Foundation and the National FFA Organization.

The National FFA Poultry Evaluation CDE is a competitive event that tests the participant\'s ability to select top quality poultry and poultry products needed for successful production and marketing. Event participants must complete a written exam on poultry management, evaluate classes of live birds for eggs and meat production, evaluate quality of eggs, and evaluate and identify parts and

products. Each team competed at local and state levels for the privilege of representing their state at the National FFA Convention & Expo.

This event, held at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Ky., is one of many educational activities at the national convention in which FFA members apply classroom knowledge to real-life situations.
