NYSSA – Nyssa’s FFA started the year on a high note, taking home two banners from the Snake River District Dairy Judging Competition last week. The school’s beginner team placed first and the advanced team took home third place.

The wins cap off a summer of success at the Malheur County Fair. Students shined in Tractor Driving as five members placed in the top 10, with Nyssa’s Austin Romans nabbing the No. 1 spot.

Senior Britain Hartley took home a Grand Champion Swine Ribbon at the fair and also won Overall Grand Champion Market Hog.

“I think we have a pretty strong community and a lot of community support and we have parents that are super supportive,” said agriculture . . .
