I think our county would be proud of how well we did at the Kentucky State Fair. Our very own Harrison County FFA members worked very hard on their entries of tobacco, hay and flowers, not to mention the livestock shows and contests they competed in.
So when we took a field trip to Louisville on Thursday Aug. 15, we were pleased to find out that almost all of our exhibitors received a ribbon of some kind whether it be the Danish system in all floral arrangement classes or placing in their exhibits, livestock shows, and various contests.
Austin Bradford received second place for his legume and grass hay followed by Brittany Bennett placing third in alfalfa and grass mix, and Lincoln Clifford placed 11th in the state for his alfalfa hay.
Brooke Darnell was chosen as the northern Kentucky region star farmer. She represented her county and region proudly with her display board at the state fair.
The small engine repair team, made up of Justin Barnes, Chance Beverly, Austin Bradford and Jordan Allison, walked away with second place and each member will receive a $5,000 scholarship.
The floriculture team of Cheyanne Irvin, Morgan Bretland and Ashlee Ravenscraft went to state to compete but unfortunately did not place.  
Many of our FFA members went to compete at the state level with their livestock.
Brittany Bennett placed fifth in the Holstein jr. and sr. classes and third place in the 5-year-old class for the junior show and sixth in the jr. and sr. calf classes and second in the 3-year-old class for the open show.
Anna Arthur placed fourth in the jr. and open shorthorn shows. Kyle Hill placed second and third in the jersey intermediate calf jr. and open shows consecutively.
Quentin Sowder placed second in showmanship and seventh in Yorkshire breeding gilt for his hog.
