RESOLUTION



        A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION congratulating the Noble County 4-H livestock judging team for being named national runners-up in the 4-H Livestock Judging Competition of the National Western Stock Show in Denver, Colorado.

    Whereas, Participation on a livestock judging team gives young people the opportunity to learn the skill of livestock evaluation and to express their opinions through oral presentation;

    Whereas, Livestock judging team members learn to apply scientific principles of animal growth, evaluation, and selection to different types of animals and to analyze breeding and market classes of beef cattle, swine, and sheep;

    Whereas, Livestock judging competitions are held throughout the United States and challenge the team members and determine the knowledge and communication skills that have been obtained;

    Whereas, The Noble County 4-H judging team originated four years ago when a group of parents and students sought an opportunity to broaden their knowledge of livestock and their communication and evaluation skills;

    Whereas, Under the direction of Mrs. Jackie Bell, the group worked diligently over the past four years;

    Whereas, Their hard work and dedication paid off when they were named the national runners-up in the 4-H Livestock Judging Competition of the National Western

Livestock Stock Show;

    Whereas, In addition to the team's accomplishment, Kyle Dice finished fifth, Emily Griffiths finished sixth, Nick Riecke finished 19th, and Cory Riecke finished 28th overall among the more than 150 competitors; and

    Whereas, When it comes to preparing future leaders for agriculture and the livestock industry, few forms of educational training can compare with the experience that these young people have gained from participating on the judging team: Therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives

of the General Assembly of the State of Indiana,

the Senate concurring:


    SECTION 1. That the Indiana General Assembly congratulates the Noble County 4-H livestock judging team for being named national runners-up in the National Western Stock Show competition and wishes the team continued success in all their future endeavors.
