The State 4-H Livestock Judging Contest was Tuesday, June 18, at the Muhlenberg County Ag Center in Powderly. Spencer County had eight participants in the contest.  Connie Jeffiers, livestock leader and coach, did a great job at coaching and motivating all of the team members. The awards were June 19 in Muhlenberg County at a local church.  
The Clover Team, consisting of Casey Montgomery, Sydney Warren and Dillon Stallings had an amazing contest. In Goat Evaluation, Casey Montgomery was 13th, Sydney Warren was 19th, and Dillon Stallings was 25th individually. The Clover Team was fifth in goats.
