Paulding County 4-H Is Proud To Recognize Excellence in Poultry Judging!
The Paulding County 4-H Poultry Judging team recently competed at one of the Northwest District Poultry Judging Competitions in Gordon County, Calhoun, Georgia. The team consisted of Junior and Senior 4-H’ers who spent 11 weeks preparing for the competition. Participants judge both live specimens and market poultry, identify parts of birds already prepared for market, and evaluate eggs for their quality and readiness for market. Participants are also asked to justify their placing decisions through a set of oral reasons.
Paulding County 4-H Seniors are High School students in 9-12th grades and Paulding County 4-H Juniors are students in 4th - 8th grades.
