Emanuel County Young Farmers recently held their first annual forage contest.
There were 16 entries in two categories.
In the Dry Hay Category, Adam Lane took first place with Ricky Henry in second and Greg Powell in third.
In the Baled Category, C.G. Breedlove took first place with Josh Meeks in second and Addison Hooks in third.
This was an enjoyable and competitive contest and will be held again in the fall.
