State Soils!

On October 13-14, Sutherlin FFA members competed in Culver, Oregon for the State Soils CDE (Career-Development Event). Soils is an event that FFA members can participate in that involves many different skills. This includes finding the texture of the soil, special features, irrigation of the land, wind and water erosion, and much more.

Soils was a great opportunity for the members of the Sutherlin FFA Chapter. There were over 100 competitors from all over the State of Oregon. A lot of tough competition was present, but Sutherlin members did their best. As Joe Matteo put it, “State Soils was a great experience to see a different part of the state and also to see everyone represent our Chapter in such a great way.”
