The state Dairy Evaluation CDE was held this past weekend at the University of Georgia. I am proud to report that 33 teams competed in the Jr. and Sr. levels of the CDE. Membership has been confirmed and the results are considered official.


Thank you to Mrs. Christa Steinkamp and Mr. Ricky Wheeler for their hard work in coordinating the CDE, and thank you to each teacher who served as a group leader, reasons taker and ring help.
