Ripon FFA took three teams to the University of California at Davis Field Day on Saturday, March 2.
The Small Engines Team, which consisted of Kent Norman, Justin DeBow, and Cody LeyHan was responsible for hosting the troubleshooting portion of the contest at U.C. Davis. This opportunity allowed them to develop a scenario and bug the engines so the teams competing had to diagnose the problem and fix it in one hour.
Madison Hardin, Michaela Ratto, Jessica Coit, Francesca Arnaudo, and Savanna Vizcarra competed in the Farm Record Books contest. The team placed third overall.
The Meats Judging team, which consisted of Kylie Brahic, Mark McPeak, and Ashley Nelson, participated in their respective contest.
The Poultry Team, which consisted of Ryan Kirkpatrick, Tyler Hendon, Steven DeFreitas, and Emily Hoogendoorn, placed second overall. Ryan was third high individual overall and Tyler was fourth high individual overall.
