judging contest held
The Idaho County 4-H & FFA Carcass Judging contest was held on Wednesday, August 28th at Sonnen Meats in Greencreek. 4-H and FFA members learned about how meat is graded and then judged classes of beef, sheep and swine carcasses. These carcasses were from the Idaho County Fair held the third week of August.
Sonnen Meats provided cash awards for the top three placing judges. Receiving first place and a check for $100 was Sydney Bruner, daughter of Teel and Kellie Bruner from Cottonwood. Leah Higgins, daughter of Brad and Cindy Higgins from Cottonwood, placed second and received a check for $50. Third place went to Spencer Schumacher, son of Tony and Kim Schumacher from Greencreek. Spencer was awarded a check for $25.
Thanks to Norm and Julie Sonnen, owners of Sonnen Meats, for sponsoring the carcass judging contest and providing the cash awards for the winners.
