Livestock Judging Camp

Enhance your livestock judging skills in the Classic City! Camp is open to any 4-H or FFA member who is a rising 6th-12th grader. Participants will need to come with their Ag Teacher, Extension Agent/Volunteer Coach and are responsible for their own lodging. We will have local producers sharing their livestock along with former and current collegiate judging team members from across the nation assisting with officials and reasons. Participants will be grouped on age and experience levels.
