Central A&M FFA Attends Answer Plot by Winfield

On Wednesday, September 25th, Central A&M FFA went to Van Horn, Inc. in Cerro Gordo for the Answer Plot put on by Winfield.

Rebekah Nash, Matthew Hardeman, Megan Zindel, Del Adcock, Shelby Sloan, Dean Adcock, Mo Hunter, Michelle Burrus, Lauren Burgener, Kyle Taylor, Maddie Cooper, Salena Sloan, Brock Burgener, Scott Myers, Lydia Cooper, Connor Mitchell, Ethan Woodard, Alli Kersin, and Jacob Hazlet attended this informational and learning experience.
