2000 State Fair Stockmen's Contest Results

Livestock Update, November 2000

Mark Wahlberg, Extension Animal Scientist, 4-H/Livestock, Virginia Tech

The Junior Stockmen's Contest is a test of general knowledge about livestock subjects. The contest includes identification of feeds, equipment, breeds, and retail meats cuts. Contestants judge classes of hay, meats cuts, beef cattle, sheep, and swine, and answer questions about the animal classes. They also take a 25-question quiz on information pertaining to livestock. The contest included a Junior Division (4H and FFA members who are 13 or younger on September 1) and a Senior Division (4H and FFA members who are 14 - 19 on September 1.). A total of 320 members competed in the contest. Results for each division are shown below.
