2015 Livestock Judging Camp

Jun 8, 2015 through Jun 10, 2015 (All day)

The Ohio State University Livestock Judging team is once again hosting a Livestock Judging Camp for any youth who are interested in becoming better at judging livestock animals. My name is Becca Dhume and I am the head of putting it together this year. At the camp kids will learn how to evaluate the animals, take notes, and then present reasons. We will go over everything step by step, so it will be a learning process. On the last day, we will hold a mock contest, with prizes and recognition. There will be food, lodging, and different activities that are provided when attending (See flyer for more details). There are a few changes when compared to last year, one being that now all youth who are eligible to show in 4H are eligible to attend! We as a team are incredibly excited to share our knowledge with the younger generations. Our goal is to get kids excited about agriculture, by teaching them in a fun, encouraging manner.  We really hope that you as a youth will consider attending, or consider letting your children attend because it will be an experience that they will remember for the rest of their lives. If there are any questions or concerns, I encourage you to contact me directly. My email address is The deadline for the non-refundable $50 deposit is due on May 30th, to the Ohio Cattlemen's Association (form attached to flyer).
