The 2017 County Timber Judging Contest was hosted by Garrett Swendal at his farm once again this year. Centerburg, East Knox, Danville, Mount Vernon, Clear Fork and Fredericktown all participated in the contest this year. In addition to properly identifying the species of the tree, students were required to determine the total marketable board footage in the trees.
Congratulations to East Knox who placed first in the County Timber Contest. Second place went to Centerburg, with Mount Vernon rounding out the top three.
Congratulations to the top three individuals: Will Small from Mount Vernon in 1st place, Jacob McCarty from East Knox in second, and Isabella Wolford from Centerburg placed third.
