NEO livestock judging team breaks cattle record at NAILE

Miami, Okla. – Monday, Nov. 25, 2013 – Livestock Judgers from Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) attended the North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE) in Louisville, Ky. on Nov. 20, 2013 and placed in the top 10 in every division (Swine, Sheep, Cattle, Reasons, and Overall).

According the association’s website, The North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE) is the world's largest all-breed, purebred livestock exposition. Ten different species of livestock compete in the exposition, and the purebred beef and sheep events are the largest in the world.

NEO competed against 21 other Junior College Teams. NEO placed in the top 10 in each division, ending up first in cattle, breaking the record and winning performance reasons, third in reasons, seventh in sheep, fourth in swine, and fourth place overall.

“It was a great day overall, and I am incredibly proud of our students and all the effort they have put in so far this year,” said Tyler Dewey, NEO livestock judging coach. “Setting the record in the cattle division is a great accomplishment for the team.”

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.

Sara Green placed sixth in reasons, seventh in cattle, and eighth overall. Morgan Marley placed third in cattle, third in reasons, and sixth overall. Lindsay Tasos placed fifth in swine.

Team members include:

Ethan Propp -- Adair, Okla.

Morgan Marley -- Elkins, Ark.

Sara Green -- Grove, Okla.

Lindsay Tasos--Madera, Calif.

Jacob Embry -- Winchester, Ky.

Lea Crump -- Calhoun, Ga.

Katie Chupp – Adair, Okla.

Tres Wright -- Carthage, Mo.

Clinton Brightwell -- Carthage, Mo.

Holly Smith -- Nickelsville, Ga.

Eric Webb – Unionville, Mo.

Brycen Hale -- Columbus, Kan.

Chelsea Olger -- Ovid, Mich.
