Livestock Judging

To judge livestock you must carefully analyze the animal and compare them to a certain standard which is said to be ideal. Then you must rank the class one to four. Participants must evaluate various animals such as hogs, cattle, and sheep. Livestock judging helps decision making capabilities and gives the opportunity to defend yourself by giving oral reasoning. “Judging instills confidence in those people who may be timid and humbles those who tend to be conceited.” -Harlan Ritchi
