Livestock judging gives young people many valuable opportunities to develop skills that will help them for the rest of their lives. They’ll be able to apply the skills they learn as a livestock judge to any number of different professional situations they later encounter. With that thought in mind, there is interest in offering Fairfield County youth the opportunity to develop their livestock judging skills through participation in a county wide program.
To explain and answer questions, informational meetings will be held December 16 and 17, 6-7pm, for those young people interested in livestock evaluation and further developing their public speaking skills.
Why is livestock judging important?
- Enhances decision making capabilities
- Oral reasons provide the framework for public speaking skills
- Builds character, integrity and honesty
- Network with other individuals and producers who share similar interest
No formal training needed – just a will to learn and an interest in scholarship opportunities or livestock industry knowledge.
Open to 4-H and FFA members of all ages.
