Louisa-Muscatine Community School District (LMCSD)
Louisa-Muscatine Schools is located along the Mississippi River south of Muscatine, Iowa. Our school name comes from being part of Louisa and Muscatine counties. Included in our district are the communities of Grandview, Letts, Fruitland, Cranston, and Muscatine. With this population base, our school district has approximately 1,100 students. Information about the city of Muscatine can be found by clicking here. The Louisa-Muscatine district encompasses a harmonious blend of farm land, industry, business and growing residential areas. Although located in a tranquil, rural setting, we have quick access to many cultural centers and events in neighboring cities such as Iowa City, Davenport-Rock Island, Muscatine, Chicago, St. Louis, and Cedar Rapids. With our close location to larger cities and closeness to the recreational aspects of the Mississippi, Iowa and Cedar Rivers, our growing rural community benefits from its location, its resources, and its common-sense people.

The Louisa-Muscatine FFA Poultry Judging Team received a gold rating and placed ninth overall in the National FFA Poultry Judging Career Development Event held on Oct. 27 in Indianapolis, Indiana. They competed against the state champions from 42 states! Will Hoopes and Brelynn Randall received gold individual ratings and Skyler Beck and Kendal Pugh received silver individual ratings. Their top 10 finish qualified them for an expense paid trip to the International Poultry & Processing Expo in Atlanta, Georgia this January curtesy of the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association.

To prepare for the contest, students were able to work with the Iowa State Poultry Department, the Purdue University Poultry Department, Farmer’s Hen House Egg Processor in Kalona, and Hy-Line North America in Wilton.

Individually, the contestants had to evaluate and place live broilers, laying hens and turkey carcasses along with oral reasons over their placings. They graded broiler carcasses and processed poultry products, along with identification of poultry retail products, evaluated and graded eggs both for interior and exterior defects and completed an exam over the poultry industry. As a team, they answered questions over hatchery and laying hen management and gave a presentation over hatchery and breeding operations.
