Versailles F.F.A. cattle, 1947

Posted on August 4, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

The Versailles Future Farmers of America’s 1947 carload lot entry for the state fat cattle show in Louisville consisted of these 15 fat calves. Mary E. Currens, chapter sponsor, stood beside Paul Smart and his calf, which won the Versailles grand championship. Second-best calf was that shown next to Smart’s, owned by Billy Moore. The others, placed third to 15th, are lined up in that order from right to left. Smart hosted a farm program on WVLK five days a week. Published Oct. 27, 1947, in the Lexington Herald.
