On Friday of FFA week, the Cashton FFA officer team hosted an assembly for the students and faculty of Cashton High and Middle School. At the assembly, the students participated in a myriad of activities such as the farmer olympics, Ag trivia, cow pie eating contest, turkey bowling, and the egg toss. There was a mixture of success within the student body throughout the activities. The teachers dominated Ag trivia while the eighth grade class won the egg toss. The Juniors excelled at turkey bowling while the senior class finished first in the cow pie eating contest. This year’s farmer olympics champions was the senior class. Students also could win a cash prize for the chicken plop. Our chicken for this year’s chicken plop was Cluck Norris, a Black Rosecomb rooster. With Cluck pooping on square 26, Ryan Osuski won the prize.
Another Cashton FFA tradition is the cow costume and the kiss the mystery animal contests. Four students were on the ballot to wear the cow costume, and five teachers were on the ballot to kiss the mystery animal. Voting was open during the FFA brat sale. This year’s winners were student Jeffrey Belteton and principal Mrs. Butzler. To best welcome Mrs. Butzler to Cashton this year the mystery animal was a Holstein calf. Tomorrow, to end the FFA week celebrations, the chapter will be hosting a casino night and dance in the high school cafeteria. The admission for the event is $3.00.
