The OSU Dairy Judging Team of Laura Bond, Colton Harstine, Ella Jackson, and Meghan Sanders participated in the contest located at the Fort Worth Stock Show in Texas on Sunday, January 17. The team finished 2nd in the Jersey breed and Ella Jackson was 5th high individual overall. She also placed in the top 5 in two breeds, as well as 3rd high individual in reasons. With 14 participating teams, this winter destination continues to grow in popularity!
The trip also included many local locations of cultural interest and visits to dairy farms who offered classes for us to evaluate. Both also had active niche market businesses and shared their expertise on this topic.
