Madisonville FFA wins big in Forth Worth

Posted

Taylor Barrett of Madisonville FFA was named Grand Champion and Reserve Champion Overall in the Livestock Equipment division with her portable hoof trimming table in the Junior Agricultural Mechanics Project Show at the 124th Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo at the Will Rogers Memorial Center.

A number of other Madisonville FFA students were also awarded for their part in the Junior Agricultural Mechanics Project Show, in which they went up against over 400 other projects from around the state.

Madisonville winners are listed below:

Jake Padon and Colby Sheppard earned a Blue Ribbon and Second Place in Class with their shop table.

Kallie Tilton received a Blue Ribbon for her small animal cage while Austin Anthony earned a Red Ribbon for his hay ring.

Other Blue Ribbon recipients included Sam Stevens (field sprayer), Ricardo Lopez and Ethan Williams (covered hay feeder), Cade Colwell (entry gate), Barrett Whitesides (entry gate), Alex Alvarado (22-foot tilting trailer), Mackenzie Foster (third in class, entry gate), Levi Stark (three-point hay spear) and Case Foster (entry gate).

“I encourage anyone who wants to be inspired by our youth to take a tour of the show’s Ag Mechanics entries,” said Stock Show President and General Manager Brad Barnes in a press release. “The innovation and dedication these students and their advisors pour into their projects is impressive.”

Members of FFA and 4-H organizations across the state spend countless hours designing and constructing equipment to accommodate a variety of farm and ranch needs. There are also divisions for outdoor recreational equipment as well as a division for the restoration of farm and ranch equipment, such as tractors and horse-drawn equipment. The contest has experienced significant popularity among high school agricultural science programs since 2013.

The Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo began Jan. 17 and will last through Feb. 8.
