More about the Livestock Judging Contest

Exhibitors compete as a team and/or individually to judge groups of livestock classes.  Livestock judging will train exhibitors in live animal evaluation of breeding and market animals.  Students learn the parts of each of the species that will be evaluated:  beef cattle, sheep, and swine.  They also study breed differences within the species.  Each exhibitor will meet one-on-one with an official to give their oral reasons for their placement.  Exhibitors should learn to make their own decisions based upon the best available information presented to them.  Scores are based on presentation as well as accuracy of placement.  Exhibitors gain skills in decision making, critical thinking, oral communication and self-confidence in addition to advancing their knowledge of the livestock industry.
