The Cloister FFA is proud to announce the results of fall regional CDEs. Our chapter was very well represented on Tuesday, competing against students from other chapters in Schuylkill, Lebanon, Berks, Bucks, Cumberland, and Chester counties in forestry and horse evaluation. They’ve been studying and preparing since the beginning of the year for this event. In forestry they identified different trees, samples of lumber, and forestry tools, and measured tree volume using Biltmore sticks and unknown distances using pacing. In horse evaluation, they placed four classes of horses and identified different color markings and hoof diseases. Without further ado, here are their results:


8th in the county, freshman Raina Foran

4th in the county, sophomore Jansen Balmer

3rd in the county, junior Genna Ellis
