Tarleton student wins Farm Bureau Collegiate Discussion Meet
On Saturday, April 8, four Tarleton students went to Waco to participate in the Texas Farm Bureau's annual Collegiate Discussion Meet. 11 college students entered into the contest and Terren Moore, a senior, Agricultural Services and Development major from Tarleton State University walked away as the winner. The contest was a roundtable discussion with contestants discussing questions about the agriculture industry.
Moore competed and made it to the finals in the contest last year. When comparing this year's contests to last year's he said, " This year's contest had less people, but the competition was higher quality, I would say. Last year's contest focused more on immigration and taxes since it was before the election, this year's focused more on trade and regulatory obstacles that farmers and ranchers may face."
Moore spent a great deal of time preparing for the contest.
"I did a lot of research. There were some days I would be on the phone talking to farmers for hours. I visited the Farm Bureau office and talked to farmers in Texas and even other states. Lots of late night studying and preparing," Moore said.
