4-H members Orry Williams, Leslie Langley, Jacob Lehman, Jonathan French, Jenna Meredith, Trent Thomas, Alina Cobb, Dalton Casey, Bo Langley, Shane Peterson and Jasmin Peterson participated in this year’s Compact Tractor Competition. Thanks to manager Bruce Book at Jacobi Sales, participants were able to try out one of the new Cub Cadet mowers while practicing their driving techniques, maneuvering through an obstacle course that required patience and decision making skills.
Compact Tractor Competition participants each received a blue ribbon. Division champions were: Clover: Shane Peterson, champion, at right, and Bo Langley, reserve; Intermediate: Jonathan French, champion, at left, and Trent Thomas, reserve; Senior: Orry Williams, champion, at center, and Jacob Lehman, reserve. Jonathan & Orry will have an opportunity to participate in the Compact Tractor Contest at the Kentucky State Fair in August.
