It was another great year for livestock judging in River Valley Extension District as Team 1 of Wyatt Durst, Andrew Tiemeyer, Jefferson Simmons, Ty Stewart, and Lindsey Dankenbring (as alternate) brought home a second place finish in the State 4-H Livestock Judging Contest, held in conjunction with the Livestock Sweepstakes in Manhattan, Kan. The team also received first in swine placings, third in sheep placings, third in beef placings, and third in oral reasons scores. Winning second overall qualifies the team to compete at the American Royal in November for a chance at a national title. Only one team from each state is able to enter this contest. The team is also nominated to compete in the Ak-sar-ben Livestock Judging Contest in September if they choose to do so.
Individual awards went to Wyatt Durst for first place in swine, sixth place in beef, seventh place in oral reasons, and seventh place overall; Andrew Tiemeyer for 10th place in swine, second place in sheep, and fifth place overall; and Jefferson Simmons for second place in swine.
RVED Livestock Judging Team 2 of Luke Martin, Hunter Johnson, Ben Jensen, and Scuyler Zenger also competed for a respectable finish. In the Livestock Quiz Bowl Competition, RVED team of Brooke Jensen, Casey Jensen, Wyatt Durst, and Andrew Tiemeyer, finished fourth. Livestock Sweepstakes was held Aug. 25 to 26 this year and consisted of Livestock Judging, Quiz Bowl, Skill-a-thon, and Meats Judging.
