2014 Walker County Land Judging Contest

The Walker County Soil and Water Conservation District and the Natural Resource Conservation Service hosted the annual land judging contest for high school students on October 15, 2014 at Mathis Creek Farm in Argo. Score cards are completed on four different land uses; pastureland, farmland, cropland, and home sites. This event is designed to help students learn more about land, soil types and capabilities, methods of soil conservation, treatments to obtain higher crop production and selection of suitable home sites. We would like to thank Jeff Barton for the use of his farm as well as the Walker County Board of Education & Darrell Wade for digging the judging pits for the competition. Congratulations to Curry High School for winning the contest and to the Walker County Center of Technology for placing second. Adam York was the high individual scorer.
