On Friday, November 22nd Sutherlin FFA members made the long trip over to Oakland to compete in the District Ag Sales Career Development Event. In Ag Sales members get the chance to show off their salesman skills by selling their products to judges in the competion. Also, members get to compete in other areas involved with sales such as ad layout, customer relations, prospecting, and order taking.
