The Van-Far FFA would like to congratulate the Van-Far FFA Meats Team on their successful National Meats Evaluation and Technology CDE Competition at the 94th National FFA Convention and Expo. The Van-Far FFA Meats Team consisting of Ennis Childs, Cayden Caldwell, Devyn Keller, and Hunter Scrogin received a Gold Emblem rating and 9th place overall in the nation. Individually, Cayden Caldwell received a gold rating (placing in the top 33% of participants) and Devyn Keller and Hunter Scrogin received a silver rating. Ennis Childs was recognized as the 2021 National Top Participant overall for the contest. Way to represent the Van-Far FFA and the State of Missouri Ennis! This is an amazing accomplishment, and the entire chapter is so proud of the hard work and dedication that these four members have put in over the last 10 months. The team would like to thank everyone that has supported them and provided encouragement along the way.
