Blake Hopkins Places Second in State Swine Activity

Congratulations to 4-H Livestock Club member Blake Hopkins who earned second place honors at the Youth Swine Event at Virginia Tech yesterday. He judged live classes of hogs and identified cuts of pork as well as swine breeds in the competition, which was preceded by an educational workshop for all things swine. Hopkins was joined by fellow Orange 4-H members John Michael Knight and TJ Williams; all of the boys are on the Orange 4-H Stockman's Team. Congratulations, Blake! We are proud of you!
