The Blinn College livestock judging team placed third in the team standings and had the top individual at the National Western Stock Show Carload Contest in Denver, Colorado earlier this week.

Blinn’s 4,002 points were good enough for third among 25 teams at the prestigious competition. Sophomore Kelton Poe led the individual results with 339 points.

Other members of the Blinn team were Kevin Jendrusch, who placed 11th overall; Quensey Torrez, 20th overall; Whitney Walters; and Fritz Anton.

In the Carload Contest, teams judge four pens of cattle which consist of four to six head per pen.

Blinn will compete next in the Fort Worth Livestock Show on February 4th.

The livestock judging team is part of Blinn’s Agricultural Sciences Program, which has one of the most active extracurricular programs in the state, including livestock judging, the Agriculture Club, wildlife, agriculture mechanics, and horticulture.
