Miami FFA Qualifies for State



This year there was a qualifier to see which teams would go to the Central district CDE’s held in Warrensburg, MO. In the Archie CDE Area 7 qualifier, Miami had 3 teams. The equine evaluation team, dairy judging team, and the poultry judging team, did very well. Area 7 has 24 schools participating with the Central District including over 65 teams working to advance to State. 

The horse and poultry teams advanced to the district CDE’s that was held on March 29, 2021 in Warrensburg, MO. State usually allows the top 10 teams to advance, but this year they limited it to the top 5 teams. The horse team finished State qualifier 7th overall, which would have originally had them traveling to Columbia, MO, but with the new restrictions the team did not advance. Hannah Filtingerbeger was placed 13th overall in the gold division and Abby Talley was placed 19th in the silver division and other team members were Eli Johnson and Emily Roth. 

The poultry team finished 4th overall, qualifying for state held at Missouri University in Columbia, MO. CJ McWilliam placed 5th overall in the gold division and Peyton Popplewell placed 19th in the silver division and other team members were Kenny Downs and Matt Yanonis. This concludes CDE judging for the Miami FFA chapter for the year. All teams did exceptionally well and good luck to them next year!
