The Uniontown FFA Meats Judging Team competed in the National Western Roundup Meats Evaluation contest held in Denver, Colorado on Saturday, January 6th. After completing a written exam, meats formulation problem, six placing classes, quality and yield grading and thirty retail identification cuts, the team, representing Kansas FFA, ranked 4th overall behind North Dakota, Oklahoma and Wyoming.


The team earned the trip this past May at the State FFA Contest in Manhattan, KS. With their 2nd place state finish, they qualified to be the Kansas representative at the National contest held in Colorado. Team members are Kaylyn Crystal, Gavin Fry, Nick Hathaway and Haydon Schaaf. Maddie Ard traveled with the team as an alternate.


Uniontown FFA placed 1st in Placing, 4th on the exam, 5th in Identification and 6th in Grading on their way to the 4th place overall finish. Individually Haydon Schaaf was named 6th High Individual Overall, 5th in Placing and 4th in the test. Nick Hathaway ranked 11th individually and finished 8th in Grading. Gavin Fry placed 16th overall and Kaylyn Crystal was 21st individually, 9th in the test. Maddie Ard finished 4th in the alternate division.


The team’s next competition will be the Southeast District FFA Meats Evaluation contest on February 8th. Schaaf, Hathaway, Fry and Ard will most likely represent the chapter at the district contest as well as the state contest in May as they hope to improve upon their 2nd place finish from last year. Crystal is a Freshman at Fort Scott Community College and completed her FFA career with the contest in Denver. The team is coached by Uniontown FFA Advisor Scott Sutton.
