Octorara FFA Students Place in Tractor Competition

Two students from the Octorara FFA participated in a regional tractor driving contest held at the Manheim Farm Show on Tuesday, October 8. The contest consists of a written safety test, a parts identification test, tractor maintenance, along with two skills parts, one backing a 4 wheel wagon into a stall and the other driving a tractor with a 2 wheel wagon behind it through a figure eight and then backing into a stall.
