Are You Ready to Defend Your Decision?
What: Livestock judging teaches 4-H members livestock evaluation skills for beef, goat, sheep, and swine. Additionally, members will learn how to defend their placings through oral reasons.
Who: Any 4-H member can participate regardless of what projects they are taking. Only senior members (ages 14-18) may judge in the state contest though. Junior members (ages 8-13) are eligible to participate in every other contest.
When: Practice starts in late January and is held until the state contest in August held at the Colorado State Fair. Members will participate in other contests as well, in April and May. Practice is usually held once a week.
Awards: Individual and team honors for both Junior and Senior members are given at each county judging contest.
