“Congrats to these youth and the work they put into livestock judging this year. Overall we need to work on oral reasons and see some more hogs at our local judging contests. Practice makes you better and the collegiate judging/scholarship opportunities that are out there are tremendous if these kids need to find a way to pay for college,” – stated Audra Scheel, 4-H Advisor for Buffalo, Aurora, Jerauld and Sanborn counties.
