Janette Porter and I served as the scoring officials for the Section 11 FFA soil judging cotest held in Brown County today. I always enjoy the chance to interact with future agriculturalists. It was kind of a long drive, but it is also a good chance to look at soils in pits rather than a probe core. I am not sure how long this activity has been a part of FFA, but I attended my first contest in 1969. I have been involved in soil judging off and on ever since. I can't say how many contests. Some years there were many and some years one, and some years none.
