Tyler Barthauer and Cameron Randall, FFA chapter members in the Ohio Hi-Point agriculture satellite program at Triad High School, will compete at the Ohio FFA Ag. Power Diagnostics Contest at the University of Northwestern Ohio on March 6 after placing first in the district competition in February.
The contests are designed to evaluate students’ knowledge in recognizing and repairing malfunctions in agricultural and industrial power equipment. Agricultural and industrial technicians utilize the same skills that FFA members learn by competing in Ag Diagnostics.
Students also competed at the Champaign County contest hosted by Farmers Equipment in February. The team of Tyler Barthauer and Cameron Randall placed third, and the team of Levi Haulman and Gage Phillips placed fourth.
The FFA chapter is part of Ohio Hi-Point’s Agribusiness and Production satellite program at Triad High School. The program is taught by Jonathon Smith.
