The La Vernia Livestock, Floriculture, Poultry, and Milk Quality Career Development Events (CDE) judging teams traveled to Pleasanton April 5 for the South Texas Invitational for practice before the area contest April 6 in College Station at Texas A&M University. After all teams were done at the South Texas Invitational contest, all the teams went back to the high school to drop off a few items and then drove straight to College Station. Once getting to the hotel, the students settled in, ate dinner, and studied a little before going to bed. The morning of the contest, the judging teams were dropped off at their respective locations for each contest. The day went pretty smoothly, besides a small electrical fire in the Kleberg building that only affected and delayed the Milk Quality contest for an hour. All the teams were picked up after each contest ended and then the La Vernia teams decided to go grab a quick lunch before going back to the A&M campus for results.

The livestock judging team got 22nd place.

The Floriculture team got first place for Area VII, with Mariel McFadin receiving fifth-place high point individual, Allison Bukowski receiving third-place high point individual, and Emily Mollenkopf receiving the first-place high point individual spot.

The Milk Quality team also ranked first for Area VII with Jaelyn Kotzur ranking 25th in the contest, Braden Recker receiving ninth-place high point individual, Jordan Bailey receiving second-place high point individual, and Kasey Reinen receiving the first-place high individual spot.

The Ag Mechanics team had its Area contest April 10 at Texas State University in San Marcos. The team obtained the second place spot for Area VII.

The following teams will be competing at the state contests: Floriculture, Milk Quality, and Ag Mechanics. These teams have worked hard having practices before and after school to get to this point. We wish them well at the state CDE contest.

The Milk Quality team’s results from the Tarleton State CDE contest earned the team first place. Individually, Jordan Bailey placed second-high; Kasey Reinen, sixth; and Braden Recker, 12th. Jaelyn Kotzur was also on the team. The team will now be headed to nationals in October.

Brittany Rivera is an agriculture student teacher at La Vernia High School.
