2018 Little International Livestock Show 

Our 2018 Little I was a huge success and allowed us to welcome 33 new members! Over the course of several weeks, our inductees practiced with their various species in order to prepare for the show. We had some amazing coaches that volunteered their time to help the participants perfect their techniques. These coaches included Tucker McDaniel and Jaime Willis for swine, Ashley Franco and Gloria Rodriguez for sheep, Kaitlyn Staszewski and Shelby Howell for beef and Sam Sullo and Ashley Ohmstede for equine. Many of our old members volunteered to help with set up and dinner. At the show, a winner was chosen for each species, followed by a round robin, in which the species winners alternated showing each of the other species. This year's sweetheart was Anne Sheerin. After round robin, our grand and reserve champions were declared.  The 2018 grand and reserve champions were Elizabeth Tauchen and Shelby Kirton. Block and Bridle would like to thank Vice President, Kaycie Miller for organizing the event as well as all of our judges for their time and expertise. We would also like to thank Sam Sullo for serving as an emcee, and all of our old members, department faculty, and advisors! We would not be able to make this all happen without you all!
