I’d have to say that having it in Nashville, TN made it even more special for me since I had never been there before!

I love being able to see the students showcase what they have raised and knowing they work so hard to produce the best. The Florida State Fair will be held

This year has flown by! I cannot believe that it is almost Christmas, which means 6 more months until MARCO! JFCA members have certainly been busy this past month. Myself and State Treasurer Chad Revis had the opportunity to help out in the show ring at the ShowDown N O-Town Cattle Battle. There were 80 exhibitors and over 150 head at this show. Board of
