On Friday August 6th, the Vinton-Shellsburg hosted Dairy Food Judging for the Northeast District and members from the Vinton-Shellsburg FFA chapter. The teams tested milk with different variants, they tried and guessed different cheeses, and took individual and group tests. They also did a mastitis test on milk. The members that attended on behalf of the Vinton-Shellsburg Chapter included Annabelle Newton, Clayton McKenna, and Bailey Weeks. They placed 2nd as a team, while Clayton placed 6th individually, Bailey 5th, and Annabelle 4th.
