4-H News: Livestock Judging


   It’s time to get ready for 4-H Livestock Judging practices! 4-H Livestock Judging is a fun activity open to 4-H members in grades 5-12. During the practices, 4-H’ers will learn how to observe and judge four different species of livestock – cattle, goats, sheep, and pigs – and determine what order a group of four animals of the same species should be placed in, from the best in the group to the worst. Older 4-H members will learn how to give reasons for why they chose the particular order for a class. The skills learned during a judging contest are valuable both the contest, as well as real life applications!

   All practices will be conducted via Google Classroom and Zoom. To get the code for the Livestock Judging class in Google Classroom, please check your 4-H Google Classroom or call the Extension Office at 722-3229.
