The Poultry Contest tests student
knowledge and understanding of the poultry industry. At present, the
contest consists of a test, identification of meat cuts, candling
eggs, judging live birds, judging processed patties and judging
carcasses. Currently, a chapter may enter up an unlimited number of members at
the state level, with the top three scores making-up the team
With the 2009-2010 school year, this CDE was restructured into having a state preliminary contest with the top teams proceeding onto the state finals. The top 4 scores are considered the 'Team of Record' and those names are in bold. The state winning team competes at the National FFA Convention. The second place team competes at the Big E in Massechusetts.
