Kelly Barbee Participates in the 2021 World Dairy Expo

On September 29th, 2021, Kelly Barbee participated in the 2021 World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin.  Throughout Mr. Barbee’s professional career, he has bred, owned, and showed various Jersey Cattle. Jersey Cattle are a breed of dairy cattle which produce high quality milk and are known for their high butterfat content, which is best for dairy by-products.  World Dairy Expo is home to one of the best-known dairy cattle shows in the world and our very own Mr. Barbee achieved two overall rankings: Best Overall & Best Udder of the two year-old cow class.  Kelly Barbee serves as one of the agricultural teachers at Piedmont High School, and the coach for the Piedmont FFA Dairy Evaluation Team.  This team will also be competing at the National FFA Convention in late October to represent North Carolina at the national level in Indianapolis.
