By Staff Report

Pifer’s hosted the FFA and 4H Agronomy contest and the FFA Ag Sales contest. In all the contests drew 117 contestants. This event took around 30 volunteers to make it happen. We would like to thank the volunteers, the Bowman and Scranton FFA Alumni, Pifer’s, the All Season’s Arena, and the producers who brought livestock in for the contestants to judge.

Locally, the Bowman County 4H livestock judging team competed in this contest. Individually, Timber Hauso was 4th Overall, Blake Wolbaum was 6th Overall, Dillon Bowman was 8th Overall, Sam Andrews was 9th Overall, and Kaylee Kinsey was 11th Overall. This group was also 2nd as a team. Abbi Steeke competed for Scranton FFA, and was the High Individual in the FFA Livestock Judging Contest.
