COLLEGE STATION – The Texas A&M University Livestock Judging Camp is scheduled June 20-22 at the Pearce Pavilion in College Station.
4-H and FFA members interested in livestock judging are invited to attend and learn from members of the award-winning Texas A&M Livestock Judging Team.
“This camp will provide three days of intense livestock judging and will teach those just starting out the fundamentals or allow intermediate-level judges to polish their skills,” said Jake Franke, coordinator of the Texas A&M Livestock Judging Team. “The success of our camps is illustrated by the extremely high number of repeat campers. We are very thankful so many parents and agriculture leaders put faith in our program to assist in youth education and development.”
Topics to be addressed include the fundamental livestock evaluation skills pertaining to cattle, sheep, goats and hogs; proper note-taking and public speaking techniques; and one-on-one critiques tailored to fit each camper’s experience level. The weekend will conclude with a mock judging contest.
