Twin Valley FFA
Thirty members of the Twin Valley FFA chapter
entered their record books in the state FFA record book
Twenty-five members received thirty-five medals for
their records. Record books are judged on their complete
ness. accuracy, neatness, planning, summary, etc. A com
mittee of agriculture teachers from across Pennsylvania
does the actual judging of the records.
Topping the list of Twin Valley winners was Ryan
Marshall, who received gold medals for his swine finish
ing, beekeeping, and non farm work records. Ryan also
received the Farm Credit Award for the best records in
Berks County. Ryan is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Richard
Readinger of Reinholds.
■ Silver medals were awarded to Tifany King for her dog
breeding records, Steve Harrop for his on-farm work
records, Robert Sauder for his wildlife records, Heather
Dougherty for her small animal records, Carla Kurtz for
her work experience records, Ben Dodd for his aquacul
ture records, and Becky Kurtz for her small animal
Bronze medals were awarded to Amanda Scott for her
small animal records: Andrew Mast for his dairy herd
records; Andrew Parsons for his swine finishing and shop
experience records; Ann Haag for her pet records; Brian
McGowan for his field com, swine finishing, on-farm
work experience and shop experience records; Carla
Kurtz for home improvement records; Chas Steffy for
wildlife records; Ned Gardner for wildlife records;
Heather Dougherty for swine finishing records; Jason
Hess for wildlife records; Jason Mantz for on-farm work
records; Marcie Baker for swine finishing and rabbit
records; Matt Kurtz for on-farm work records; Missy
Tyson for non farm work records; Michelle Jacobs for pet
records; Michelle Powell for poultry records; Tara Plewa
for wildlife records; and Tracey Putt for pleasure horse
and non-farm work records.
All agriculture students at Twin Valley and at most
other agriculture programs are required to maintain
records on an animal, job, wildlife conservation project,
research project, etc. In this way students learn the reali
ties of record keeping. Record books are included as part
of the grade for students. At the end of the year students
summarize their records, do inventories, do net worth
statements, and analyze their records to see where they
could be improved.
In Berks County, FFA members then compete in a
county record book contest, with monetary awards going
to the top records in each category. Top records from the
county contest are then entered in the state contest
Record bodes are another way in which agricultural
education students learn by doing. Classoom theory is put
into practice with these student records.
