Marion-Florence FFA takes first in ag mechanics
Marion-Florence FFA students took individual and team firsts April 4 in a south-central district agriculture mechanical and technical systems event at McPherson High School.
Combine harvesting systems provided the context for tests and practicums which included reading and interpreting electrical wiring diagrams; identifying parts and using the “Go Harvest” app for a John Deere combine; shielded metal arc welding; small engine measuring and tool identification; grain harvest loss practicum; and team-based engine mount construction.
Peyton Ensey placed first overall, with Ethan Hinton finishing third, Antone Vinduska taking fifth, and Caleb Hett placing eighth. Stevan Schafers rounded out the winning Marion team.
