Livestock Judging Camps
Submitted by Heather Cutshall, May 31
The Fort Scott Community College Agriculture Department will host its annual livestock judging camps in June. A beginners’ session for younger students will be offered on Tuesday, June 14, and an extended session for older students will be offered from Wednesday, June 15, through Friday, June 17.
During both sessions, students will learn how to evaluate livestock and provide oral reasons in a fun, learning environment. Students will learn transitions and phrases used during livestock judging, and they will be encouraged to improve on every set of reasons. Upon completion of the camp, students will be more comfortable with judging livestock and presenting their oral reasons.
The fee for the beginners’ session is $45 and the extended session is $165. Students who attend the extended session will stay two nights in the FSCC Boileau Hall dorms, and meals are included in the fee.
For more information or to register, please call (620) 223-2700, extension 3290.
