Collins-Maxwell FFA members attended the 2014 South Central District Livestock Judging Contest on Friday, July 25. The judging contest was held at the Monroe County Fairgrounds, in Albia. Teams judged market beef, breeding heifers, market pigs, breeding gilts, market lambs and breeding ewes. Various questions are asked about each species after each class leaves the arena. Individuals need to have a good memory and write the correct notes about each animal. Team consisted of Jacob Stratton, Nathan Wright, Sean Deakins, Tyler Kennedy and Trever Coughenour. Jacob Stratton finished as the fifth place individual overall and the team placed third overall. They all did a great job!
