PCHS Students Participated in Georgia Jr National State Livestock Show

Peach County students participated in the Georgia Jr National State Livestock Show. They started off Wednesday buy building our "Herdsman Display" and getting the calves settled in. On Thursday our Beef show team participated in showmanship and did very well, just missing the cutoff for final drive in 10th grade. On Friday the Beef show team participated in the Beef Heifer show and received two 1st place awards. The Dairy team also participated in showmanship Friday where Alissa Gallaher placed 3rd overall in 9th grade out of 30+ showmen. Also on Friday our Dairy team was evaluated for our "Herdsman Display". For this the students were judged on stall cleanliness, educational facts displayed, and overall team work and communication. The team received Grand Champion for this task. This was a huge accomplishment as we have received Reserve Grand Champion last year at state show and the fair. Saturday the dairy team participated in the Dairy Heifer show where we had a 1st, 3rd, 9th, and two 10th place calves. Overall the Beef and Dairy Show teams had a very successful weekend at the show. I would like to tell you both THANK YOU for allowing our school to offer this to our students and your continued support for our FFA program. It truly is a pleasure to be able to give students living in city limits the opportunity to raise and exhibit livestock.
