4-H wins sheep and goat judging state title
Young County 4-H had one team walk away with a state title during the Texas 4-H roundup state competitions. The Young County 4-H Livestock Judging team earned the sheep and goat judging state title.
“We won sheep and goats, but had a rough time and did not fare very well in the rest of it,” Young County 4-H Coordinator Justin Rogers said. “A species state championship is still a pretty good deal.”
Representing Young County this year were Cade Anderson, Boomer Whitaker, Becca Burgess and Victoria Richards. The livestock judging team placed third overall and won the swine state championship in 2018 before going on to become the national champions in cattle and third overall team at the American Royal competition later that year.
Richards was also named the reserve state champion in sheep and goats. Rogers said this is the second time since 2016 Young County 4-H had the reserve champion in sheep and goats.
All 254 counties were represented at the state roundup with ten members from Young County present. In order to compete at the state competition teams had to qualify through their district contest.
