Ag teachers,

Happy Monday. I hope that each of you had a blessed and happy weekend. This past Saturday the state FFA Meats Evaluation CDE was held at the University of Georgia. I am very grateful to Dr. Dean Pringle, Dr. Francis Fluharty, and all of the UGA Animal & Dairy Science faculty for their support in coordination of the CDE. We are blessed to have a such wonderful partnership.
