4-H Livestock Judging Practice

We had a successful first meeting of our Buncombe County 4-H Livestock Judging Team last night.  For those of you who were not able to join us but would still like to be a part of the team, we have included a summary of the meeting below.

Please note that our next practice will take place on Monday, March 21st from 4:00 -6:00 p.m. at the Erwin High School shop classroom.  Please make sure you read through example sets of reason in your Livestock Judging Handbook which can be found at: http://downloads.cas.psu.edu/4H/4HLivestockJudgingManual.pdf.  Be prepared to identify which information and details should be included in a set of reasons for a breeding heifer class and a market hog class.

We also recommend that you visit the NC State 4-H Livestock Judging website (http://www.cals.ncsu.edu/an_sci/extension/animal/4hyouth/Livestock%20Judging.htm) which has great resources and fact sheets on terminology for each species as well as sample reasons
