Recently, Greenville High School hosted the annual Section 21 Dairy Judging CDE, where FFA members from Section 21 had the opportunity to judge seven classes of dairy cattle.

The cattle were placed on many factors including: frame, dairy strength, udder, and rear feet and legs.

Members also completed a written test that focused on DHIA records, identification of the parts of a dairy cow, and identification of milking equipment.

Overall, the NCHS team won 1st place.

In the individual competition, John Kwiatkowski was 3rd high individual, Mason Niedbalski was 4th high individual, Kari Hake was 5th high individual, and Kyle Lamczyk was 7th high individual.
