FFA Week 2016 Day 4

The Cashton FFA hosted its annual FFA week Brat Sale on Thursday of FFA week. FFA members grilled hamburgers and bratwurst for middle school and high school lunches. The Brat Sale is a fundraiser for the week’s activities and is the end result of the Food Products and Processing class’s brat processing unit. During the sale the student body was given tickets to vote for teachers to kiss the mystery animal, a middle school student to wear a pig costume, and two high school students to be the farmer and cow of FFA Week. This year’s nominees for the kiss the mystery animal were Mr. Hanley, Mr. Kohl, Mr. Jackson, Mr. Zellner, and Mrs. VonRuden. Middle school student nominees for the pig costume were Paige H., Logan P., Phillip B., Bonita H., Kenny L., and Alannah K. The high school student nominees for farmer and cow of FFA Week were Kiana E., Nick L., Taylor F., Ben W., Bre H., Brandon K., Alyssa V., and Donnivan H.

The winner of the pig costume is Phillip B.

Day 6 of FFA Week

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.
