|On Wednesday, September 19, members of the
Sloan-Hendrix FFA Livestock Show Team set out for
the NEA District Fair in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Seven members were responsible for eighteen head of
cattle and two hogs. Team members prepared the barn and tie out area for the livestock which would
arrive later that afternoon. Signs were hung and a fall display arranged at both ends of the barn.
Wednesday through Friday, team members swept the walkway and mucked the animal tie outs to keep
things looking good. The hard work definitely paid off, because the Show Team won the Herdsmanship
Award in the junior division.
Garret Jessen exhibited two hogs in the swine show on Thursday.
At 9:30 Friday morning the cattle show began. Those participating and their placings follow:
