Livestock Judging Team Begins 2015 Season

The Ohio State Livestock Judging Team competed at the National Western Stock Show on January 15th in Denver, Colorado. The team finished 12th out of 26 teams, and Trevor Kirkpatrick finished 9th overall high individual and 8th high individual in swine.

The team recently traveled to Jackson, Mississippi, to compete at the Dixie National, where it finished 4th high team in the Brahman Influenced division, and Brandon Barlage tied for 10th overall individual. The team finished in the top ten, but because only the top five teams were ranked, exact finish is not determined.
