Red Oak FFA Sweep Awards at Competitions

Red Oak, TX - The Red Oak FFA Ag Mechanics Show Team attended the San Antonio Livestock Exposition Jr. Ag Mechanics Contest on February 26 - 28. 

The FFA entered two trailers into the contest and both projects were awarded Blue Ribbons for their workmanship and presentation.  The 20-foot bumper utility landscaping trailer was constructed and shown by seniors Justin Bonner and Preston Cozart, as well as juniors Bronson Lincks and Christian Diego.  The 16-foot bumper pull utility trailer was constructed by seniors Trett Scott and James Groves, as well as juniors Corbin Tingle and Kenneth Busby. This project was exhibited by Kenneth Busby and James Groves.

The Red Oak FFA Ag Mechanics Show Team’s next stop was the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo Jr. Ag Mechanics Contest on March 18 through 20.  The FFA team hauled four trailers and a 1941 Ford model 9N tractor that was restored by team member Justin Bonner for display at the show.  All four trailers again were awarded Blue Ribbons for their work and presentation of their respective projects. The 20-foot bumper utility landscaping trailer was shown by juniors Bronson Lincks and Christian Diego.  The 16- foot bumper pull utility trailer was again exhibited by juniors Kenneth Busby and and senior James Groves.  In addition, senior Preston Cozart contructed and exhibited his own 14-foot utility bumper pull trailer and senior Drew Scott constructed and exhibited his own 10-foot utility bumper pull trailer.

Red Oak FFA sponsor, Jake Mullican, says, “These students have worked extremely hard this year to make all of this happen.  The amount of literal blood, sweat, the late nights and early mornings, weekends and holidays that went into the custom design, fabrication, and presentation of these projects are evident in the accomplishments these gentlemen have achieved.  They have made us extremely proud in how they have represented our chapter as well as our school, our district and community.” 

The projects, as well as many more, are being constructed in the Red Oak High School Shop right now and will be on display in competition once again during the Ellis County Youth Expo on April 4 - April 10.  The Red Oak FFA will have over 70 shop and livestock projects on display during the Expo.
