On September 30, 2017, the DCMO BOCES Harrold Campus Conservation students traveled to SUNY Cobleskill to compete in Cobleskill High School Ag Days. Twelve students attended the event and competed with over thirty schools from throughout the state. DCMO BOCES students competed in skid steer driving, bulldozer operation, small engines, wildlife management, and various other competitions. The students were able to experience first hand SUNY Cobleskill programs, talk with professors and students, and interact with other schools competing.
DCMO BOCES is excited to announce that two individuals earned first place awards. First place in tractor driving was Jacob Utter of Unatego school district. The tractor driving contest consisted of driving and backing a two-wheeled trailer in an enclosed course. Safety, speed and precision of backing were all considered in the overall scoring. Also earning first place was Tyler French, also of Unatego school district. Tyler won the excavator contest which consisted of a written safety and operations exam, as well as a bucket control skill course. Instructors and classmates are all extremely proud of these individuals, as well as the other students who competed representing the DCMO BOCES Harrold Campus Conservation program.
