Santa Barbara County Farm Bureau Feeds Quiz Jam Participants

Santa Barbara County Farm Bureau was honored to be a part of Farm Supply’s Second Annual Quiz Jam at the Santa Barbara County Fair on Monday, July 13th at 5pm in the Minetti Arena.

Quiz Jam is a timed, team event that tests the skills of each four-member team with agricultural challenges. The challenges include, but are not limited to, putting a tire on a tractor, roping a “steer” and vaccinating or ear notching a “calf”. There are two categories: junior teams are ages 9-13 and senior teams ages 14-18. Each team came up with a team name and took on the course with excitement.

Quiz Jam participants walked away with hats that boasts the official contest logo and bags of goodies provided by Farm Supply and their many generous sponsors. Once the teams had completed this year’s course, Santa Barbara County Farm Bureau provided the 200 participants snacks including chili and cheese Frito bowls, individual vegetable packs and water. Fun was had by all. Teams and sponsors alike are already looking forward to this event next year.

The snacks were prepared and served by Santa Barbara County Farm Bureau Executive Director, Teri Bontrager and Special Programs Coordinator, Robyn Moon. Also serving that evening were County Agriculture Commissioner, Cathy Fisher, and Young Farmers and Ranchers Chairperson, Becca Read.

Farm Supply’s Quiz Jam was an outstanding addition to the 2015 Santa Barbara County Fair schedule and the local Farm Bureau office is proud to be a part of this event.
