Mercer County Senior High School FFA members, Breanna Sullens, Carleigh Randsdell, Delaney Bast and Amelia Ellis recently won the state Junior Dairy judging contest at the Kentucky State Fair.
The contest is open to all 9th graders in the state FFA association. The members judge 6 classes of cows and heifers. They are taught to evaluate structure, correctness, feminity, angularity, depth of body, flatness of bone, and mammary system on cows. In the mammary they look at bloom, median suspensory ligament, fore and rear udder attachment, and correct teat size and placement.
