This donation will be used to help support the dairy judging program and the purchasing of feed analyzing equipment," stated Agriculture Instructor Justin Ebert. "Vita Plus has graciously welcomed our students to learn firsthand the importance of animal nutrition and customer satisfaction. The success of our students is greatly dependent upon positive working relationships like this one."
