Community College, Kansas State University, Arkansas State, Murray State in Tishomingo, Okla., Butler Community College in El Dorado, Kan., and Coffeyville (Kan.) Community College.
Livestock Chairman Michelle Green said it was an honor to have so many college livestock judging teams present in Coffeyville. “It’s a star for us, because they feel our animals re good enough to come and work on.”
