The Mandan FFA competed in the 2012 Roughrider competition in Dickinson on Feb. 4. We had a very successful day of competition. To start out the day, the Livestock team consisted of Macey Isaacs, Tessa Keller, Renae Tokach, Matt Smith and Callen Clarys. The team placed second over all with Macey second place, Tessa third, and Renae 13th placing in the top 15 participants.
The Crops team members were Brandi Boehm in ninth, Tammy Mesich 11th, Vanessa Gross, Paige Fischer, Cullen Gress, Tanner Gress and Adaer Halverson. They placed second overall with Brandi and Tammy placing in the top 15 participants.
Last but not least is the Ag Sales team. The team participants were O.Kaiden Straabe and Sarah Fischer. O.Kaiden placed in the top 10.
We had a very successful start to our season and hope to have a fun year ahead of us. We would like to thank our coaches for the hard work and dedication for us to be able to compete. We will be in Fargo for our next event at the Little International at NDSU.
