    MUSCATINE, Iowa– Muscatine FFA placed third overall at the state poultry contest, held virtually Oct. 3. Individually, Audrey Seibel was sixth overall, Ava Daufeldt 12th, Emily King 16th and Danika Garrett 30th. Jamie Sprague and Ethan Hausch also practiced with the team. The students participated virtually from Muscatine High School, with materials presented to the students via Zoom and files sent back and forth using Box.

    Traditionally for the meats poultry contest, students judge a class laying hens, broiler chickens, and ready to cook chicken or turkey carcasses. They also grade interior eggs, grade exterior eggs and note written factors, grade ready to cook chicken or turkey carcasses, and identify 10 chicken meat product parts. Plus, they take an exam about poultry production. 

    FFA leaders felt the students did well and took pride in the students’ accomplishments. They also valued that students had the opportunity to participate. In previous years, state poultry judging took place at the State Convention held in April. However, cancelation of the convention due to the COVID-19 pandemic led to the rescheduling of the contest.
