Michigan 4-H/FFA Livestock Judging Contest
The State 4-H/FFA Livestock Judging Contest is held in conjunction with the Michigan Livestock Expo (MLE) and is a collaborative effort between Michigan 4-H and Michigan FFA. By participating in the livestock judging contest, contestants can enhance their livestock evaluation and selection skills, as well as improve their communication and decision making skills. Contestants will judge eight classes including beef cattle, boer goats, sheep and swine. Each contestant will then answer one set of questions and either give three sets of oral reasons or answer three additional sets of questions. Two key contest reminders are that the state winning Senior 4-H Division team will compete at the American Royal Contest and that the top 20 Senior 4-H Division contestants, who have not already competed at the NAILE, will have the opportunity to compete for eight spots to represent Michigan 4-H at one of two national contests. The 2016 contest will again feature a 4-H Cloverbud division.
