The Sanborn Central/Woonsocket FFA Agronomy team enjoyed the experience of the 91st National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Ind. with the theme “Just One.”  Team/Chapter members attending were Megan Linke, Wesley Linke, Carter Linke and Collin Schmiedt. Advisor Jessica Ronning and Chaperones Amy Linke and Paula Linke accompanied the team.  

For the fourth time in the past six years, the SCW chapter competed at the National level with a state-winning CDE (Career Development Event) team.  

This past April, at the State FFA Convention, the team not only won the state Agronomy CDE team title, they swept the top three individual places with Wesley in first, Carter in second and Megan in third.  This qualified the team to compete at the National level.   

The group left on Monday, Oct. 22, for Indianapolis, and stopped along the way for a tour of Fair Oaks Farms in Fair Oaks, Ind.  While there, students were able to take what they learned in their animal science class about hog production and see firsthand how farrow to finish barns work. While touring the dairy-milking parlor, students were able to see the dairy cows being milked on a carousel.
