State Meats Judging Contest
Overview

February 25, 2017
Eckles Hall
University of Missouri, Columbia, MO

The meat industry is an important component in Missouri agriculture. The Meat Identification and Judging Contest has been developed to encourage 4-H members to develop skills and abilities needed to enter and advance in careers in the meat industry.  These activities are designed to encourage the development of broader analytical skills, critical thinking, the use and understanding of appropriate meat terminology, and the evaluation of meat animal products to optimize economic returns not only to them as producers, but to them as consumers as well.

This contest is open to all 4-Hers. Registeration in 4HOnline will open on December 23, and youth must register by February 1.
