State FFA Ag Biotechnology
July 4, 2019
FFA teams from 49 chapters participated in this year's Career Development Event designed to provide the student an opportunity to display their agricultural knowledge and skills in the area of Biotechnology. The 192 individuals who participated in the event completed several activities including a general knowledge exam and an identification activity. The team members also collaborated in a team activity relating to biotechnology principles.
The South O'Brien FFA Team of Erin Wagner, Bryce Rasmussen, Angela Nyunt and Grant Wagner placed 6th overall.
Erin commented "I really like the team portion of this event. We were under a time limit to come up with a plan to genetically modify an ag commodity to suit the needs of a customer base. I think we really did a good job putting the plan together this year."
