Livestock Team competes at National Convention

Congratulations to the Livestock Evaluation Team as they earned a Silver Award last week at the National CDE for Livestock judging in Louisville, Kentucky. Members included Cassie Perrin, Claire Zahm, Darren Kulicamp, James Brown and Chase Bos (alt.). The members evaluated classes of Beef, Sheep, Hogs and Goats. They had to work through some keep vs cull classes and examined data to select the stock as well. The toughest part of the contest involved answering question and giving sets of Oral Reasons to judges. These reasons classes were some of the toughest classes that the members saw all day. Cassie Perrin received a Gold rating, James and Claire received a Silver rating and Darren received a Bronze award. As a team they finished 23rd in the nation out of 42 teams that competed.  Team members are shown here along with Advisor, Kent Bollinger and Coach Hannah Bollinger. A Big Thank You to Hannah for all her time that she invested!   FullSizeRender (2)
