FFA Takes Another First

This Thursday, April 23, the Scottsburg FFA Livestock Judging teams headed to Little York Stockyards in order to take part in the Area 2 Livestock Judging Contest. Members had to judge multiple classes of both Breeding and Market styled animals, these including sheep, cattle, pigs, and goats. After this, they wrote, memorized, and presented three different sets of reasons on select classes to the judges, and were scored on how well they did. Livestock Judging is a very competitive contest in both 4-H and FFA, and takes a lot of time and dedication to learn all it entails. The FFA is very proud to announce that the team consisting of Kevin Hardin, Kyle Richey, Isaiah Bromm, and Tessa Richey received 1st Place Overall Senior Team at the contest. Also, first-year judger Tessa Richey received 2nd Place Overall Individual as a freshman! These are both huge accomplishments, and we congratulate all the team members, as well as their advisor Caroline Vangosen for an excellent season.
