Two years ago, the Cameron University Department of Agriculture signaled its intention to resurrect a livestock judging team with the addition of Justin Rogers as Livestock Judging Coordinator. Rogers has assembled a five-member team made up of Will Arnold, Ennis, Texas; Jessica Cauthon, Lawton; Chance Clinton, Holdenville; Clay Dolch, Verden; and Cody Julian, Elgin, which made its competition debut earlier this year.
