SFJH FFA members are keeping themselves busy this summer. And all their work is paying off with numerous awards and even some top honors.
Students exhibited hogs, cattle and sheep at the Uintah Basin Jr. Livestock Show and the Delta Stock Show. Students competed in market classes, showmanship and a judging contest.
Three students walked away with the honor of Grand Champion—one student did it in two categories! At the Uintah show, Gage Fevold won Grand Champion Hog Showman as well as the overall Grand Champion Showman title.

Planned FFA Summer Events
Spanish Fork freshman Jade Rindlisbacher placed first in the pole-bending competition at the Utah High School Rodeo Association Championship held last Saturday.
Pole-bending is a timed competition where rider and horse have to weave through a series of 6 poles place 21 feet apart on the ground. Knocking over a pole adds five seconds to the competitor’s time while failure to follow the course causes disqualification.
Jade is featured in a great article by Jared Lloyd in the June 3rd issue of the Daily Herald. The link is provided below.
