Upper Bucks County Technical School Triumphs at the Pennsylvania Farm Show

Upper Bucks County Technical School (UBCTS) Animal Technology stu­dents recent­ly par­tic­i­pat­ed in the PA Farm Show. UBCTS is one of two schools in the state who attend the show as a team.

These ded­i­cat­ed and tal­ent­ed stu­dents tire­less­ly spent the last four months prepar­ing their ani­mals for the junior mar­ket show and assist with the var­i­ous show com­mit­tees. They left for their five day and four night adven­ture on January 5, 2019, with hopes and aspi­ra­tions of doing well. 

They did not dis­ap­point. The entire team per­formed well with cer­tain stu­dents gain­ing indi­vid­ual acco­lades for their indi­vid­ual accom­plish­ments. Casey Keeler won Grand Champion in the Other Purebreds Class with her pig, August. This was UBCTS’ first grand cham­pi­on. “Congratulations to Mrs. Danka and her stu­dents for a job well done. It was nice to see their hard work pay off,” said Michael Herrera, CTE Supervisor at UBCTS

Also, Level 1 Sophomores Sierra Kapusta, Kerrin Long, and Caleb Roth were award­ed their FFA jack­ets dur­ing a cer­e­mo­ny sig­nal­ing a bright future for the FFA chap­ter at UBCTS. It should be not­ed that Kerrin Long and Caleb Roth per­formed very well at the FFA Career and Development Event ear­li­er this year.  Kerrin placed 5th out of 127 stu­dents in Horse Judging and Caleb Roth 3rd out of 100 stu­dents in Dairy Cattle Judging at their first event.
