4-H/FFA Livestock Judging Competition

This year we decided to participate in a new project, livestock judging.  The kids took classes held at the Clemson Research Education Center to prepare for the competition.  They were taught the techniques for judging market steer, dairy heifers, sheep, market hogs, and gilts to determine the best and worse in a class.  What do you look for when looking at these animals for market production?  What body type is beat for breeding ur producing milk?

April 5th 4-H and FFA students from around the state gathered to compete at the Garrison Livestock Arena at Clemson University. It was a fine day to mix and mingle with Clemson students participating in the Little North American Livestock Competition.  Our Lowcountry Team had a wonderful learning experience and look forward to returning next year.
