Inter Mountain Fair 2016 Wrap Up
McArthur FFA Reporter
The McArthur FFA chapter had a victorious run at this year’s
Intermountain Fair. The chapter entered a fair booth, several
projects into the Agriculture Mechanics division, and had fifty
eight livestock exhibitors with Swine, Lambs, and Steers.
McArthur FFA members are required to have an SAE project, and
many of our members choose to have projects that culminate at
the Intermountain Fair. SAE stands for Supervised Agricultural
Experience. The SAE program is a project that takes up the
better part of the year and consists of projects or enterprises
where you apply agricultural skills and knowledge taught in the
classroom. There are six types of SAE; our students are most
involved with Ownership/ Entrepreneurship and School based
Enterprise. Most commonly raising Livestock projects for 5 to 9
months out of the year, or working on shop/lab projects that are
exhibited and possibly sold at the fair.
were thirty eight pigs entered in the market swine classes; ten
lambs in the market lamb classes; and ten steers entered in the
market steer classes. In the Swine division, Ruilly Horta
exhibited the FFA Reserve Market Hog and Triston Welander
exhibited the FFA Champion Hog and overall Supreme Champion Hog.
In the sheep barn Robee Knoch exhibited the FFA Reserve Lamb and
Cyanna Iniguez exhibited the FFA Champion Lamb and overall
Reserve Supreme Lamb. In the Cattle Division Bailey Small
exhibited the FFA Reserve Champion Steer and Wesley Woolery

five of these exhibitors went on to compete in the Round Robin

The Agriculture Mechanics division was divided into three
different categories; Large Division, Rope Work, and Small
Woodshop Projects. In the Large Division Gunnar Ronquist 1st

Wagon Wheel Bench as well as Alicia Reynoso with her Make up
Table. In the Rope Work division, John Dombroski and Jarron
Barrios received blue ribbons. In the Small Woodshop Projects
division Stevie Collins, Gavin Dobson, Jessica Hammon, and Tori
Policastro all received blue ribbons. Something newly added to
the Fair this year was the addition of Ag. Mechanic projects
being sold in a Silent Auction. This provides our non

recognition but some money for their efforts.
In conclusion the McArthur FFA Chapter would like to extend a
big thank you to our community members, livestock buyers, the
Intermountain Fair, and to the parents for their continuous
dedication and support.
