   Lloyd was first in the state, Patterson was second in the state and Kirkpatrick was third in the state. In this event, FFA members learn career skills for working with livestock producers. Students demonstrate their ability to reason and communicate about equine selection, management, and production. They evaluate classes of horses and give oral reasons for their selections.
