Maren Redlinger VS FFA Co-Reporter


District Soil Judging was held September 25, 2019 at Hawkeye Community College.

The Vinton Shellsburg FFA chapter took two teams of four students. Those teams consisted of Owen Novotny, Andrew Brummer, Christopher Fleming, Logan Tharp, William Miller, Hailey Swanson, Brant Ortner, and Mathew Rippel. The teams went out in fields and were tasked with taking soil samples out of a number of test pits. The teams had learned how to evaluate the soil for quality and determine what type of soil they were looking at. The team of Andrew, Christopher, Brant, and Mathew placed 13th overall. Both teams did well and said they enjoyed the experience.
