Menomonie Wins Horse Evaluation Career Development Event

June 8, 2022 CDE

MADISON, Wis. – The Menomonie FFA Chapter was named the state winning Horse Evaluation Career Development Event Team. Team members include Madison Kwak, Olivia Burstad, Kira Prochnow and Brianna Forsterv. Their advisor is Jean D’ Angelo. Additionally, Madison Kwak was the top individual.

Students who participate in the National FFA Horse Evaluation Career Development Event gain new insights into equine science by evaluating and ranking horses based on breed characteristics, confirmation and performance. Participants defend their decisions through oral reasons in front of a panel of judges. 

Menomonie will now represent Wisconsin FFA in competition at the National FFA Career Development Events to be held in October in Indianapolis, Indiana during the 95th National FFA Convention. The Horse Evaluation CDE is sponsored on the state level by the Amber Vickers Keller Endowment. The National sponsor is Tractor Supply Co.

 All Career Development Events engage students in developing their communication, decision-making and teamwork skills to promote future career success.
