Recently, the Fredericktown FFA competed in the General Livestock Judging Contest at the Ohio Expo Center. This Career Development Program is designed as a practical method of teaching students to recognize quality production animals. The skills students learn in evaluating general livestock producers and consumers by giving them practical experience in identifying and understanding characteristics that affect production and quality. The students have to take a written exam, complete market grid questions, place 8 classes of beef, sheep, swine, or goats, place a keep/call class and answer questions on the placing classes. The team took 17th place and Jessica Small took 30th individual out of 874 individuals. Fredericktown FFA Advisor is Debra Burden.
