County Team Takes First Place By Tim Hoeft On Saturday, March 30th, 1996, McHenry County's 4-H Livestock Judging team traveled to Kishwaukee Valley College near DeKalb to compete in the district livestock judging contest. At this contest, the 4-Hers judged two classes of each; beef, swine and sheep, with four animals in each class. The object of livestock judging is to place the animals from first to fourth place base on quality and criteria. Some classes are judged as breeding animals and others are judged as market/meat animals. There were teams from eight area counties at the district contest. McHenry County's 4-H team had place first overall with Huntley's own Eric Ruth being awarded as the second place individual with an excellent high score of 331! Also in each of the livestock categories McHenry County had top placing individuals; Beef-Ben Dowell, Swine-Tom Linneman, and in Sheep-Eric Ruth and Tim Hoeft, both of Huntley, placed 1st and 2nd respectively. Also representing McHenry County were; Katie Danforth, Andrea Douglas, Katie Dowell, Manda & Noel Dowell, Holly & Jennifer Jacobs, Phil Ksiazek, Chris Little and Jason Veldhuizen. The McHenry County 4-H Livestock judging team is not qualified to compete at the state livestock judging contest which will be held in June at the University of Illinois in Champaign.
