Whitewater FFA President, Brady Meudt, pictured third from the left, won the Beef Showmanship competition at the Jefferson County Fair in July. He then went on to compete with the Showmanship winners from the other livestock competitions in a Master Showman competition. Competitors in that contest were required to show all species, dairy, swine, beef, goats, and sheep. Brady again won first place in the overall division.
