Rehearsal of the 2nd AGROLYMPICS
Last week the students from my school who will act as jury members in September tested some of the disciplines of the upcoming Agrolympics. The aim was to get a feeling of the competition, to test the materials/tools and to check whether the evaluation of the disciplines will work or not.
The following disciplines were tested: Log splitting, Tractor driving, Handling potato/apple boxes, Balancing big bales, Fencing, Apple pressing, Changing points, Assembling a pipe-line, Hand milking and Fertilizer spreading.
The students were very enthusiastic, the weather was wonderful and we could welcome some guests, e.g. the Mayor of Burgstaedt, some film producers and a journalist from a farmer´s magazine. Soon we will get a promotion video which shows the activities on this day.
Please keep in mind that the machines we used are not the machines we will have during the competition!
I will keep you updated 🙂 !
