4-H livestock show results noted
On April 29, the Douglas/Carson 4-H and FFA Area Livestock Show was held at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. This was a qualifying show for the Nevada Junior Livestock Show to be held May 11-14 in Reno.
Part of having a livestock project is record-keeping. These are very detailed records kept on your animal and yourself. There’s a lot of work that goes into these record books. The winners are David Hoskin for beef; Tyrel Dressler, sheep; and Brain Hoskin, swine. Another special award is the Butch Ricci Memorial Award of Excellence. The recipient this year is Kyle Martinez.
Participants showed their animals in the quality or market class. Here the animals are judged on their readiness for market and their conformation. These classes are broken down by the weight of the animals, with a grand and reserve champion picked for each species. Here are the grand and reserve champion results: champion steer, Jessica Greer; reserve champion steer, Kyle Martinez; champion lamb, Tyrell Dressler; reserve champion lamb, Aimee Hoskin; champion swine, Skyler Zulian; and reserve champion swine, Shelley Hulsey.
