FFA students thrive at Kaufman County Junior Livestock Show

March 5, 2020

Crandall ISD students competed last weekend in the Kaufman County Junior Livestock Show at the Kaufman County Fairgrounds. Students exhibited their livestock—both breeding and market—in cattle, chicken, goat, rabbit and sheep species, along with agricultural mechanics projects.

CHS junior Kently Northcutt had a stellar showing in livestock, earning Grand Champion in both market goats and breeding goats. Northcutt also produced champion medium weight, first and second place, and third place in Senior Goat Showmanship for market.

Sixth grader Jessi Pearson produced the district’s third Grand Champion showing in Market Rabbits, also claiming first place in the category.

Together, all students claimed three Grand Champion honors, one Reserve Grand Champion, one Reserve Champion, one Reserve Division Champion, four Best of Breed and 11 first place finishes.
