Adair County 4-H Country Ham Judging Results
By Tony Rose, Agent for 4-H Youth Development
Adair County Extension Service
This year the Adair County 4-H held a local 4-H Country Ham Judging Contest. Dr. Gregg Rentfrow, Extension Professor- Meat Science judged all the 4-H and Cloverbud hams. Hams are scored in five areas: Conformation, Workmanship, Meatiness, Color, and Aroma.
In the 4-H youth, Maddie Wethington was selected as Grand Champion with a total score of 88, and Myla Curry was selected as Reserve Grand Champion with a score of 87. The following youth received a blue ribbon rating: Kesley Breeding, Keaton Burton, Malloree Kimbler, Abby Maulden, Addie Baker, Eliza Spinks, Riley Yarberry, Avannah Dicken, Kylie Cowan, Beth Cowan, Katie Kean, Morgan Spoon, Katherine Lemmon, Lily Loy, Claire Loy, and Noah Newell. The following youth received a red ribbon rating: Hudson Hancock, Gracie Morrison, Madison Irvin, and Braxton Irvin.
All these youth will be sending their hams to the Kentucky State Fair on August 19 to have their hams judged at the State 4-H Country Ham Contest and each youth will also be giving a speech on their ham project.
In the Cloverbud Division, Michael Hargis was selected as Grand Champion with a total score of 87, and Abby Smith was selected as Reserve Champion with a score of a total score of 84. The following Cloverbud youth received a blue ribbon: Ava Loy, Brazleigh Burton, Azalea Dicken, Addaleigh Dicken, and Lucy Ford.
We want to congratulate all the youth who participated in the 2021 4-H Country Ham project and cannot wait until we have our 4-H Ham Auction this Fall. Some great hams will be auctioned off. The Adair County 4-H Ham Auction is being planned for October.
