Benjamin Logan FFA participated in a soil judging

Benjamin Logan FFA students participated in a soil judging Career Development Event. There are two different divisions of soil judging; one is rural which is out in the country and one is urban which is in the city. The urban land and soil judging CDE is an educational activity designed as a practical method of teaching students to evaluate land and soil to determine its potential use for urban, homesite, and other non farm uses. The Agricultural Soils CDE is an educational activity designed as a practical method of teaching students to evaluate land and soil and to make decisions when faced with soil related issues that affect agricultural production. (ohioffa.org) The students that participated in the rural/ag were Ty Anspach, Chance Frater, Gage Hamm, Carson Lyden, Owen O’Brien, and Wyatt Smith. The students that participated in the urban were Elliot Bailey, Madison Beuttner, Lukas Hemmelgarn, Elizabeth Deardurff, Micah Petterson, and Whitney Willoby. The students spent the day assessing soil. The students trained during multiple class periods learning about good soil and bad soil, along with the types of soil and how to identify them.
