NEO livestock judging continues ‘top 10’ tradition at the American Royal

Miami, Okla. – Thursday, Nov. 7, 2013– Livestock judgers from Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) attended the American Royal Judging Contest in Kansas City, Mo. on Nov. 3, 2013. NEO competed against 20 other junior college teams. They captured the title of Third High Team in Hogs and Seventh High Team Overall.

“This is only the beginning of the major contests for us, and we are happy with the progress we have made this fall, but are looking forward to improving,” said Head Coach Tyler Dewey.

According the association’s website, The American Royal Association is a not-for-profit organization that has been a Kansas City tradition since 1899. It celebrates our region's rich agricultural heritage through competition, education, and entertainment. The purpose of the ARA is to provide scholarships, education, awards and competitive learning experiences that reward hard work, leadership skills and agrarian values.

Selected contestants compete, as a team and individually, to judge groups of appropriate classes. Each contestant then meets one-on-one with a judge who listens to the reasons for that contestant's placement. Scores are based on presentation as well as accuracy of placement. Contestants gain skill in decision-making, critical thinking, oral communication, and self-confidence in addition to advancing their knowledge of the field.

The team had many members that were successful individually. Ethan Propp was Seventh High Individual in Reasons and Sixth High in Cattle. Morgan Marley was Fifth High Individual in Cattle, Lea Crump was Ninth High Individual in Hogs, followed by Lindsay Tasos placing Sixth High individual in Hogs, Sixth High Individual in Reasons and 12th High Individual Overall.

Team members include:

Ethan Propp -- Adair, Okla.

Morgan Marley -- Elkins, Ark.

Lindsay Tasos--Madera, Calif.

Lea Crump--Calhoun, Ga.

Sara Green--Grove, Okla.

Holly Smith--Nickelsville, Ga.
