The 4-H state livestock judging contest took place on Monday at the Animal Science Lab on the University of Illinois campus, and Christian County’s representatives did very well in the competition. The Christian County senior division team blew away the competition to take home the state title. The senior division is made up of those 14 years old and older.
Rebecca Livingston is the Christian County 4-H Coordinator at the University of Illinois Extension. She says the senior division participants for the county were Eric Schafer, Maddie Fugate, Tanner Mickey, and Makenna Green. She says the group is now eligible for national competitions.
The junior division participants for Christian County were Lizzie Schafer, Drew Mickey, Miley Corso, and Wayland Pollock. She says there are many qualities the participants are judging at the competition.
The senior team’s national competitions will come this fall. For more information on the Christian County 4-H program, you can visit their website here.
