Aaron Ohnoutka, Kearsten Peterson, and Trenton Barry competed in a recent land judging competition. FFA students spend time studying the basic differences in soils, and why soils respond differently to management practices, as well as how soil properties affect crop growth.
Bishop Neumann/Wahoo FFA members helped plant eight trees around Weston, which obtained the trees via a grant. Members assisted in digging holes, planting and watering the trees, and putting in posts for tree support.
Numerous Bishop Neumann/WHS Chapter Members qualify for 2019 State Convention!
