Andy Drange and his son Spencer Drange both won the proficiency award for specialty animal production for Montana FFA. Andy won the award in 1986 and Spencer won it this year in March at the State FFA Convention held in Great Falls. Andy won it in entrepreneurship in Beekeeping (owning your own bees) and Spencer won it in Placement for Beekeeping (working in the industry). Both specialties compete for the same award. To earn the award, they had to keep records for all four years of high school and fill out a long questionnaire application about what they did in the beekeeping industry.
