Long hours of practice, studying pay off at FFA state competition

Since the beginning of March, FFA members across the state have been competing at invitational judging events that have been leading up to the state competition that took place April 10-12 at the NMSU campus.

All the late night practices, long hours of studying, and constant practicing in the mirror in order to get the perfect sets of reasons finally paid off for most individuals.

The Clovis FFA chapter took seven teams to Las Cruces. These teams included: horse, milk quality products, meats, farm business management (FBM), agricultural mechanics, livestock, and vet science.

The teams from Clovis that placed in the top 10 were:

  • Milk quality products, second
  • FBM, seventh
  • Agricultural mechanics, ninth

The individuals from Clovis that placed in the top 10 were:

  • Sam Davis, sixth in milk quality products
  • Janay Blevins, eighth in milk quality products
  • Kajlee Huysmans, eighth in livestock

The chapter would also like to thank the advisors Kalynn Baldock, Mark Runyan, Morgan Arguello and student teacher Amanda Jaramillo for coaching the teams and making this year a success.

Clovis is graduating three seniors: Lane Hand, Michala Ingram and Janay Blevins of the state teams.
