Alfred State College recently hosted 280 Future Farmers of America students from 15 western New York high schools for the 33rd annual Agriculture Skills Contest.

The contest included a variety of events designed to test students’ knowledge and skills in agronomy, agricultural mechanics, animal science, veterinary science, and tractor operations. Ribbons were awarded in every competition, as well as for overall individual and team placing.

Dr. Phil Schroeder, chair of Alfred State’s Agriculture and Veterinary Technology Department, said of the contest, “Again this year we had a great turnout for this contest and are very grateful to our students and faculty who work very hard to make this event awesome.”
