HCC Dairy Judging Team Finishes Their Season in 2nd Place
Competing with 15 teams, comprised of two-year colleges and four-year universities, the Highland Community College Dairy Judging team finished their season in second-place at the Southwestern Exposition & Livestock Show in Fort Worth, Texas. 

Judging consisted of several classes, including Brown Swiss, Jersey, and Holstein breeds, followed by a set of four oral presentations in which judges provide an explanation for their placing in dairy cattle evaluations. In the Jersey Breed, Riley Zettle was the second-place individual, and the team finished third. The team also finished third in Brown Swiss. In Holsteins, the team had a second-place finish. 

Participating team members were Anna Folgate, Pearl City; Hannah Hunziker, Ridott; Ellie Lenkaitis, Winnebago; and Riley Zettle, Rock City. The team was coached by Kristi Dinderman, Orangeville. 

Congratulations to the Highland Community College team!
