Livestock team places 5th in state competition

MOULTRIE — The C.A. Gray eighth grade FFA Livestock Team recently competed and placed fifth in the State FFA Livestock Judging Career Development Event. The event was held at UGA in Athens.

The Livestock Judging Career Development Event allows agricultural education students the opportunity to make accurate observations of livestock, determine the desirable traits in animals, make logical decisions based on their observations, and discuss and defend those decisions.

Participants place classes of breeding and market beef, sheep, and swine, and then give oral reasons to the judges as to why they placed each class as they did. Team members include Justin Bass, Caitlyn Meadows, Elizabeth Beacham, and Murdock Wynn.

FFA is a national organization of more than 449,000 members preparing for leadership and careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture. FFA is an integral part of the agricultural education program in public schools. The FFA mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of students   by developing their    potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.

The event was sponsored by the Georgia FFA Foundation.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
