North Hall’s Andrew James Cape earned first place in the proficiency competition for dairy production placement at the 87th Georgia FFA State Convention last month. The event was held April 23-25 at the Macon Centreplex.
Proficiency awards are granted to FFA members who have excelled in their supervised agricultural experience. The dairy production placement proficiency involves working alongside professionals implementing programs using best management practices available to produce and market dairy cattle and dairy products efficiently.
All winners received a plaque and a cash award. State winners receive $100, as well as $500 travel money to attend the National FFA Convention. Additionally, the adviser of the state winner received $100 cash.
