FFA Livestock Judging Results
The Central Lyon FFA Livestock judging team started the year off with a boom! The team had many practices to prepare for them for the big competition. In practice, the team judges different classes of animals including, sheep, beef, pigs, and goats. During practice the members judge each class, and then Mr. Rockhill helps and explains what you are looking for in each species. Livestock judging is an event that takes a lot of strategy, Mr. Rockhill always says “mark smart cards.” That means, you go into the contest with a clear head, and not to over think, and just be confident in your decisions. Livestock Judging has been something that the chapter has done well, and prides itself on.
