Understanding Ultrasound Data Workshop
Wednesday, Sept. 4, 7 p.m.
Oconto Falls High School Ag Room
Every year we ultrasound the livestock at the county fair, but do you really know what those numbers stand for? The Ultrasound judge will be here to explain what the ultrasound data means and how it is used by the judge. All exhibitors and parents are invited and encouraged to attend. Please contact Karen (920-834-6845) with any questions. See you there!
On August 1, 2013, the Gillett FFA went on their annual summer trip. For this year’s trip, they went to the Wisconsin State Fair.
While there, they watched three fellow community members, Jacob Kasten, Abbey Horsens, and Michelle Kohls, show their dairy projects for this year’s fair. Abbey ranked 16th and Michelle ranked 5th in their class.
The members that went also had time to enjoy the rest of the fair. Some went to the Exhibition Hall while others moseyed throughout the grounds, finding everything the fair had to offer. When they returned on the bus, everyone was talking about the good time they had at the Wisconsin State Fair.
