Northwest Iowa Dairy Outlooks

A local discussion of current science and issues concerning dairying in northwest iowa

This year’s Wichita County Pecan Show featured 19 entries from ten area growers with Dr. Bill Ree, Texas AgriLIFE Extension Service serving as the judge.

Each class winner received a blue class ribbon and division champions will receive a plaque. Six samples were tagged by Judge Ree to continue on to the Central Texas Regional Show at Kerrville on December 12, 2012.

The show has three divisions: classic and new, commercial and natives. In the classic and new division, James Whitaker won champion with is Posednick and Judy Maenza has reserve with a variety seedling.

In the commercial division, Tom and Mary Golden won champion with a sample of Pawnee pecans and Jake Montz had reserve with a sample of Nacono.

In the native division, Mike and Jean Payne had champion and Larry Hardin had reserve. Our youngest exhibitor, Sadie McWhorter received the lightest pecan award.
