FFA News
Timpson FFA has had a very busy few weeks after a very impressive week at the Shelby County Livestock Show and Sale. We had several exhibitors make the trip to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo!

Macey Jo Hanson (Senior) kicked off the week by showing her lamb in a very competitive division. Macey showed like a champ and exhibited her lamb to the absolute best of her ability- we are very proud of the way she finished off her senior year show season.

The heifer show team, consisting of April Ramsey (Junior), Ally Kimbro (8th), Baylor Kimbro (7th), Cale Cornelius (7th), Mayson Harbison (5th), and Brecken Kimbro (3rd) continued their successful run by competing in six different classes of Santa Gertrudis and ARB Heifers and were all ranked in the top six heifers in their classes.

Baylor Kimbro made a quick turn around after the Houston heifer show and returned to Houston for the Steer Show during Spring Break to exhibit his county bred and county champion steer in the ABC (American Cross) division. As always, Baylor had excellent showmanship and his steer will be showing again and for the final time at Rodeo Austin next week.

April Ramsey traveled to the Van Zandt County fairgrounds this past weekend and was named Reserve Grand Champion Simmental Heifer. We are extremely blessed to have such a great group of kids and families to travel with. There aren't many places you can go that you will see High School age students willingly and enthusiastically working together with 3rd and 5th graders. The future of our FFA Chapter is incredibly bright. 

FFA Upcoming Events

Timpson FFA will be traveling to the SFASU CDE Contest to compete for a spot at the Area contest Wednesday, March 27th. On the list of competing teams as of now are Poultry Judging, Livestock Judging, Horse Judging, Forages, and Forestry. Livestock Judging will also be traveling to Waco Texas to the Heart of Texas Fair in early April to secure their spot. 

Rodeo Austin is also right around the corner, where Timpson FFA currently has eighteen projects entered into the show. This will close out the Texas Major Show Season until State and Nationals this summer. 

Our Public speaking contestants will also compete at two qualifying rounds before District contest on April 30th. 

We are very grateful for all the support and encouragement our show teams and judging teams have received this year!
