Kaskaskia College recently hosted the State Dairy Judging CDE where FFA members from the entire state had the opportunity to judge seven classes of dairy cattle.
The cattle were placed on many factors including: udder, dairy strength, feet and legs and frame.
Members also participated in an activity that focused on identification of the parts of a dairy cow, milking equipment, and feed stuffs.
Out of the 50 teams that competed from around the state, the Nashville FFA Chapter won the state title and even placed 60 points over the second place team!
Individual placings were:
• Carli Hoffman-1st Place
• Cole Herrmann- 3rd Place
• Megan Smith- 6th Place
