We cordially invite you to again bring your county junior and senior teams to the upcoming meat judging contest, to be held Saturday, February 18, at the UW Madison Meat Laboratory. All of the materials can be found online at https://fyi.uwex.edu/youthlivestock/programs/4hmeatscontest/
We will continue with the change from the 2005 contest, junior contestants will be given a copy of the “Beef Carcass Evaluation Worksheet,” which they can use in the contest. This will assist junior members in learning about and applying beef yield and quality grades. Senior contestants cannot use the “Beef Carcass Evaluation Worksheet” in the contest.
The national 4-H meats judging contest has incorporated oral reasons at their contest for many years. We will have senior contestants give one set of reasons and it will be scored and counted for 2017.
All the information you are receiving will also be placed on the Animal Science Extension Youth Programs Website: https://fyi.uwex.edu/youthlivestock/programs/4hmeatscontest/
