Members of the Estill County 4-H Livestock Club traveled to Central City Kentucky on Tuesday June 22 to compete in the 4-H State Livestock Contest. During the contest the participants were asked to judge market and breeding lambs, market and breeding hogs, market and breeding beef animals, and market and breeding goats. Then each participant had to answer a series of questions about the classes as well as stand in front of a judge and give a set of oral reasons on multiple classes of animals.
Members of the 4-H Livestock Judging Team included Courtney McCoy in the Senior Division, Shawna Eldridge in the Intermediate Division, and Austin Dunn in the Clover Division. Each of these participants did an exceptional job and placed in the top 50 in multiple classes.
The team is coached by Jason Crowe who is also the 4-H Livestock Club leader. Congratulations to all of the participants on a job well done.
