Hannah LaBree, Heather LaBree, Sean Wolenetz and Gracie Tooke await instructions during the range competition at the District FFA contest on September 23 in Ekalaka.

Carter County hosted the District FFA fall contest on September 23 in Ekalaka.

Nine FFA chapters from the eastern district: Baker, Broadus, Carter County, Forsyth, Glendive, Miles City, Plevna, Prairie and Wibaux attended the competition. In total, 135 students competed.

Forty-eight members competed in the range competition that morning. The range contest consisted of plant identification, soils, plant anatomy and stocking rates. Carter County was well represented. Sean Wolenetz took fourth, Hannah LaBree sixth, Heather LaBree seventh, and Gracie Tooke thirty-second. The team earned a silver placing.

The livestock competition took place in the afternoon. Ninety-six members tested their skill in placing six classes, a keep-cull class of heifers and gave two sets of reasons. Carter County swept the board again as Heather LaBree finished first, Heidi LaBree fifth, Hannah LaBree ninth and Gracie Tooke fourteenth. The team finished second in the entire district.

Other members that judged that day were Brennan Graham, Cardell Laughery, Cole Schmid, Jasmine Erickson, Royce Tooke, Tucker Tooke and Zoie Rost.

Carter County chapter members reported that it was a fun day of competition and seeing friends. The chapter thanks alumni for the outstanding job they did putting on the contests and everyone who helped make the day successful. They are now looking forward to hosting winter districts in January.

Heather LaBree studies a class of bulls to place them and prepare for her reasoning during the District FFA competition in Ekalaka last week.
