Sponsored by the University of Missouri Division of Animal Sciences

We are pleased to announce this year’s Missouri Livestock Judging and Grading Clinic, our 29th year at the University of Missouri! This year’s events is scheduled for Saturday, March 4, and will continue the highly successful improvements initiated last year as well as the long-held traditions of Missouri judging. Co-sponsored and coordinated by the University of Missouri, the Missouri Department of Agriculture, and the Advisory Team, this is a great opportunity to support and develop Missouri’s youth involved in animal agriculture.
 
The contest is designed for 8th grade and older students. The clinic, designed for 8th grade and younger students, will focus on hands-on learning, working in small groups to learn more about the basics of livestock evaluation, understanding the importance of USDA grading of cattle, and even taking a field trip to Mizzou’s USDA inspected meat plant to learn about the end product.

4-H registrants need to sign up through your county 4-H office.
