By April 19, 2011No Comments

GAINESVILLE, FL – Florida FFA is pleased to announce the results of the 2011 State Meats Evaluation Career Development Event (CDE).  The Meats Evaluation event was held Saturday, April 16, 2011 at the University of Florida in Gainesville.  Thirty (30) teams from throughout Florida gathered to compete for the state championship and a chance to represent Florida at the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis.  The purpose of the Meats Evaluation CDE is to stimulate interest in learning activities related to the processing of beef, pork, and lamb carcasses, including retail cuts, wholesale cuts, identification, and factors affecting meat quality. Florida FFA is very appreciative of the support of our event coordinators Mr. Larry Eubanks and Dr. Chad Carr, as well as the staff and faculty of the Meat Science Laboratory.

As a matter of procedure, event results are considered unofficial for (2) business days following publishing. It is the responsibility of the FFA Advisor to request and review individual team results. Any appeal must be made to the FFA Executive Secretary in writing for necessary adjustments to be made.  At the close of business on the second business day following publishing, results will be official.
