In the senior showmanship contest, placings were Adreanna White in first, second – Shannon Kindley in second, Sid Alan Carter in third, and Hudson McCallister in fourth.

The top showmen in the junior, intermediate, and senior divisions came back in the ring to compete for Supreme Showman. Earning Supreme Showman was Madison Sifford, with Jaden Sink earning Reserve Supreme Showman.

Following showmanship, the type classes began with an All Other Breeds Show, Commercial Show, Gelbvieh Show, Hereford Show, Red Angus Show, and Simmental Show.

The Supreme Champion Female was Jordan Carter’s early senior yearling Simmental heifer. The Reserve Supreme Champion Female was the senior commercial heifer calf from Circle D Farm which was exhibited by Northwest Cabarrus FFA.

The judge for the show was Tom Devine, head coach of the N.C. State Collegiate Livestock Judging Team.
