****NEW Information****

  1. Dairy Judging Virtual CDE 

  2.  AET SAE Grant Winner: Dennis Wollin, South Central, Illinois

  1.  Dairy Judging Virtual CDE 

The Dairy Judging Virtual CDE will run on livestockjudging.com and will open at 8 am on Wednesday, June 17th and close at 5 pm on Sunday, June 21. Please follow the instructions below for the contest:

1. Each student will register themselves on livestockjudging.com so they will sign up for an account or sign in if they already have one.

2. Then go to the Illinois contest and use the code: cwxa

3. Once they do that they will select their division and school. For the divisions they can choose from either reasons (each school can have 5), non-reasons (official team of 5 for each school), or alternates (as many as you want)--I SUGGEST YOU COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR STUDENTS WHAT DIVISION TO CHOOSE!

4. From there they should be able to complete the contest and they have until Sunday at 5 pm to finish the contest.

5. If they are doing reasons, after they complete the contest they will record themselves doing reasons. Then they will turn them into a YouTube link (most kids know how to do this--if not email me with questions) and upload the links for their reasons. Those reasons will need to be uploaded by Sunday at 5 pm as well.

As far as payment goes, after the contest, invoices will be sent to all schools to pay for their students.

We know that this is a new platform and are still trying to figure out the kinks along with you. We greatly appreciate your participation and patience and we navigate these uncharted territories together! If you have any other questions, please feel free to email Jessica Collins at jcollins@fc74.org or call at 309-242-5744.

  1.  AET SAE Grant Winner: Dennis Wollin, South Central, Illinois

Name: Dennis Wollin

Teacher: TJ Bolin

SAE: Beef Cattle 

Location: St. Peter, Illinios

Quote from Dennis: "I run a beef entrepreneurship consisting of feeder calves, fat cattle that is sold as freezer beef, and a recently added cow/calf operation. The fall of the cattle market in recent months has made it very hard to make ends meet in my feeder calf operation. I plan on using this life saving grant to put toward a payment on my farm loan. In the future it will allow me to advance my project by purchasing additional cattle and improving equipment.

  

Quote from Dennis's Teacher, Mr. Bolin: "Dennis is a hard working young man who is always trying to improve himself and his projects. He is very entrepreneurial and also a great leader within our chapter and section levels. Dennis will serve was chapter President and Section Sentinel in the coming year. He is a pleasure to work with and definitely leads by example in a very positive way.
