The Scott County Fairgrounds was filled with community supporters during the evening of Friday, Sept. 6 for the annual Junior Livestock Premium Auction.
This year’s auction consisted of 44 exhibitors and four Add On only exhibitors.
After countless hours of preparation and meeting judging requirements, six Scott County youths were recognized as Grand Champions in showmanship.
The following exhibitors received a buckle in recognition of their hard work and efforts: Jackson Moore, Grand Champion in Market Steer; Karli Anschutz, Grand Champion in Replacement Heifer; Chase Nelson, Grand Champion in Feeder Steer; Randa Rhoades, Grand Champion the hog division; Laklynn Dedmon, Grand Champion in Market Lamb; and Chase Hale, Grand Champion in Market Goat.
In addition, exhibitors were awarded Reserve Grand Champion. These exhibitors were Ashlynn Free in Market Steer; Jacob Free, Replacement Heifer; Rowdy Tucker, Feeder Steer; and Cole Bailey in the hog division.
An upcoming issue of The Waldron News will feature each of the exhibitors as well as their sponsor in a special supplement.
Congratulations to each of the 2019 exhibitors!
