Members of the Weatherford High School FFA Meat Judging Team advanced to state after placing fourth overall at Area 5 contest Saturday in Lubbock.

Individually, Jake Calloway placed 10th out of 40 competitors at the Area 5 contest. The state meet will be May 7 in College Station.

In the Meat Judging contests, students enter actual Processing Plants and identify the meats. They also were required to dress appropriately and meet all safety regulations.

Coolers stay at a controlled temperature of 5-20 degrees.

Weatherford’s Meat Judging team has practiced using Hamilton’s Processing Plant located in Weatherford to prepare for the Area Contest, and all team members would like to thank Hamilton’s for assisting them to reach this level of the competition.

Aaron Baker, Weatherford Agriculture Science teacher and FFA Advisor, said that the team was very motivated this year to qualify for the state contest which also has been their goal this same time last school year.
