Missouri Ag Connection - 05/12/2022

The University of Missouri Extension State 4-H Horse Judging Contest drew 70 4-H members to compete at William Woods University in Fulton.

The 4-H delegation was greeted by newly appointed William Woods University President Jeremy Moreland. After the contest, youths and coaches toured the facilities and learned more about the university's equine program from faculty and students.

A majority of participants reported that their skills in areas such as evaluating equine conformation, interpreting discipline patterns and using correct terminology improved as a result of participating in the event, said Maria Calvert, Missouri 4-H state agriculture and natural resources educator.

Members of the championship team from Henry County will advance to represent Missouri in a national competition.

Major support for Missouri 4-H Agriculture and Natural Resources programs is provided by the Missouri 4-H Foundation in partnership with Bass Pro Shops, Corteva Agriscience, Crader Distributing Co., FCS Financial, Missouri Association of Meat Processors, Missouri Farm Bureau, Missouri Holstein Association, Eunice Campbell, and Robert E. "Bud" Hertzog, DVM.
