PULLMAN, Wash. — People interested in becoming livestock judges or managing livestock shows are invited to register for the Northwest Livestock Judging and Show Management School, June 15-17 at Washington State University.
The school will offer two tracks. A three-day judges track will provide training for individuals who want to learn how to judge meat animal livestock. A new show management track should interest fair managers, superintendents, show auction committee members, Cooperative Extension agents, and FFA advisors.
The show management track will focus on quality assurance and animal care, cooperation between 4-H and FFA, meat product expectations of the processor, implications of ultra-sounding animals and junior auction management.
Barney Cosner, manager of the Wyoming State Fair and nationally recognized expert in junior show management will be this year’s featured presenter.
The registration fee for the judges track is $125 per person and for the show management track, $60 per person. Registration for the judges track is limited to 120. Participation is not limited in the show management track. The fees include meals. Registration deadline is May 25.
