Thank you to each of you who prepared teams for the Area 1 Livestock Judging CDE!  I truly appreciate your hard work in getting these teams ready & your willingness to try a new schedule.  (I apologize for the delay this morning - I had to replace the scan tron machine with one from the curriculum office at the last minute.)  The top 3 three teams & the 10 ten high individuals in each contest will advance on to the state contest (Saturday, March 26, 2011 in UGA Livestock Arena, Athens, GA).    Please see attached spreadsheet for complete team & student rankings.  Both Jr & Sr results are included in this spreadsheet (see tabs at bottom of worksheet).  Official placings & cuts are also included in the spreadsheet - please see last tab. 

**All these results are unofficial until all rosters are confirmed.***
