State Fair Participation
Wade Lucey and Jordan Simons entered two lambs each in the WV State Fair last week. Both members of the Marshall County 4-H & FFA Livestock Club represented our county well. Wade placed 5th & 6th in the singles class, and Jordan placed 7th. In the pairs competition, both placed 2nd in their class. Wade placed 5th in Showmanship and Jordan placed 4th. There were 240 lambs in the competition. We are proud of their accomplishments at the State Fair!
