COLLEGE STATION – Texas 4-H and FFA youth and agricultural leaders interested in gaining livestock evaluation skills can attend a Livestock Judging Clinic scheduled March 29 at Texas A&M University in College Station.
The clinic will begin at 8 a.m. and will be held at the Pearce Pavilion, located at 555 George Bush Drive.
The award-winning Texas A&M Livestock Judging Team and coaches will teach the half-day clinic, which will focus on evaluation training for breeding and market beef cattle, sheep, goats and hogs.
“This clinic is designed for youth involved in livestock judging to prepare for district, area and state contests and to polish their judging skills,” said Brant Poe, Texas A&M Livestock Judging Team coordinator and lecturer in the department of animal science, College Station. “We will work closely with participants to develop their judging skills by reviewing fundamental principles behind livestock evaluation, assessing the dynamics of a class and providing greater insight into how classes are put together.”
The clinic will involve hands-on learning and include the opportunity for the youth to judge different classes. It will be followed by a review of how the Texas A&M Livestock Judging Team would place the class.
Registration is available online at http://judgingcard.com. Cost is $10 if registered by March 18. Late registration can be made the day of the camp starting at 7 a.m. for $15.
