Elizabeth Nixon Earns Opportunity to Judge Livestock in Europe in 2012

Congratulations to Elizabeth Nixon, Orange 4-H Livestock Club member, who judged on the Virginia 4-H Livestock Judging Team that competed in Louisville, KY, this week.  The team placed third overall and has earned a trip to the world competition in Europe next year!!!  Additionally, Elizabeth placed in the Top 10 individuals (everyone was so excited they can't remember if it was eighth place or ninth) and gave two sets of beef oral reasons that scored 47 and 48 out of 50!  We are so proud of Elizabeth and happy that she has achieved this goal she set for herself many years ago.

Elizabeth is the daughter of Tom and Kim Nixon of Rapidan, where the family owns and operates Glenmary Farm, LLC.
