Representative Tom Kirby of Loganville Georgia took 1st. place this past Saturday in Perry Georgia during a Showmanship Competition.  Kirby was one of five members representing the Georgia House of Representatives in the 3rd. annual Legislative Livestock Showdown against the State Senate team at the Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter.   Kirby’s past experience growing up on the farm and showing cattle in his youth paid off as he easily overcame the Senate’s two strongest contestants Lt. Governor Casey Cagle and Senator Heath.  Even though Tom brought home 1st. place individually the Senate for the first time took home the trophy for the high scoring team.  Mr. Kirby stated after the competition that he was very fortunate to have been paired with Makayla Holmes.  “Makayla did an excellent job in training her heifer Jolene and giving me instructions on how to show her.”
