On September 27, Big Sandy traveled to Sheridan, Montana and camped out at a forest service campground near Sheridan. The next day members participated in forestry, range, and livestock Judging. In Forestry, the team took fifth place overall and our top place individuals were Hunter Snapp who placed 9th, Amy Gasvoda who took 12th place, and Tavie Wortman who took 24th place out of 50 participants. In range, our senior team also placed fifth with our top individuals being Connor Sibra who placed 4th individually, Samuel Cox who placed 12th place, and Kaden Pursley who placed 20th out of 23 participants. Mattie Gasvoda was the only one who participated in senior livestock. In Junior Livestock, our team placed 19th and for many it was their first judging experience. Everyone had lots of fun.

After the contest, we had the opportunity to tour the Northern Agricultural MSU research center where we learned about field testing of crops and livestock handling facilities and the livestock longevity research project.
