FERRIS - The Ferris FFA Project held its annual show this weekend and several people came out to enjoy the festivities supporting the youngster in their quest to bigger things for themselves and their livestock.
Harry Sump, the agriculture teacher from Kemp High School, was the judge for several divisions during this event and was pleased with what he saw.
'Someone has done a lot of work here,' said Sump. 'This is a good show and good for these kids.'
Ferris High School agriculture teachers David McGee and Tracy Krueger were on hand to help set up the show and show the participants throughout along with multiple volunteers.
All the participants from this project will be showing their livestock at the Ellis County Expo beginning March 27 in Waxahachie.
The longhorns will not be included in the
Ellis County Expo but some of the participants in the Ferris FFA will be taking their animals to a show in Rockdale.
The Ag Mechanics Show was missing from this year's Ferris show because, according to McGee, they wanted to concentrate on the Ellis County Expo.
The students did show a trailer at the Houston Ag Mechanics Show but lost points because of paperwork and McGee said, 'We would have taken second place in Houston if it weren't for the deductions but we learned a lot from the show.'
Sump said, 'Good ag teachers are hard to find.'
It looks as though Ferris has found those kind of ag teachers with the success of this show.
