On April 27, five Nashville FFA members went to the State Poultry Judging CDE hosted at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
The CDE consisted of a general knowledge test, live bird grading, carcass grading, further processed defects grading, exterior quality factors grading, parts identification, exterior and interior quality grading, and placing market birds.
Members were to judge to the best of their knowledge of the poultry industry and were scored individually.
Overall, the Nashville FFA Team placed 16th.
