The American Royal

It was that time of the year, the end of October. Livestock judgers from across the country had migrated to Kansas City to compete in the American Royal; as always, Butler was a part of the group! After many months of preparation we were ready to conquer our nerves and compete in our first national contest.

We began our experience at the Royal by attending the Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow, Speed Meet Workshop held Thursday evening. Industry experts from across the country gathered to share their experiences and answer any questions we had. Other attendees included Oklahoma State, Kansas State, Arkansas, and Missouri. This was the second annual opportunity for students to meet with professionals, and the evening was easily a success. Thank you to all of the volunteers who participated in and put on the event!

And now for the main event! After was all said and done, the results were as follows.

Butler CC: 3rd Overall Team, Team Members: Maverick Squires, Taylor Graham, Alyson Moore, Kinzie Selke, and Jared Wynn.

Cattle: 1st, Reasons: 1st, Sheep and Goats: 3rd, Swine: 6th

Individual Results:

Maverick Squires, 1st Overall Individual. 1st in Cattle and Reasons, 3rd in Swine and Sheep and Goats.

Taylor Graham, 8th in Reasons

Jared Wynn, 5th in Reasons
