4-H Livestock Judging Winter Workouts Set

livestock judging

Washington County 4-H has had both state and national level success in the livestock judging project area and they are ready to take on a new competitive edge by offering winter workouts December – May. All 4-H’ers are invited to be a part of these practice learning sessions for one or all.  Click here for flyer.
 
This project allows livestock exhibitors to learn more about each of the large animal species or to become more of an expert in the species they show. It is a great place for beginning showman to meet others who show. It is a great project for 4-Hers who live in town and aren’t able to show livestock but want to work with them and learn more about how livestock is evaluated for market.
 
Participants gain many life skills through judging. They learn to understand livestock body structure, be an articulate and confident speaker, work with a team, make decisions, and defend decisions with reasons.
 
Winter workouts will be held at the Washington County Extension Office from 6pm-7:30 pm the first and third Tuesdays of the month. The group will be divided into experience groups with hands-on relevant practice and learning.
 
All 4-H and FFA members interested in livestock judging are encouraged to attend. No prior experience is needed. This is open to all 4-H members. Youth and parents are welcome to attend all, but not required. 4-H Livestock Judging coaches are Dustin Ford, Brandon Freel and Chad Younge.
