Description

The Eastern Region Livestock Judging Contest will take place on Thursday, September 28, at the East Tennessee Research and Education Center in Knoxville (Blount Farm). This judging event is for our 4-H'ers in grades 5th thru 11th as of 1-1-17 (with the new school year this is the current 6th thru 12th graders).

 

Registration in SUPER closes at midnight on Tuesday, September 26. Please register by this deadline. Who needs to be registered? Along with the 4-H’ers that are participating and the assigned agents, the adult volunteer leaders that plan to help conduct the contest need to be registered. We need lots of volunteers to help with this judging event. The link to register is:  http://super.tennessee.edu/Event/Home.aspx?ID=10554.

 

We plan to have 2 classes of beef, swine, sheep and goats to judge. Senior division will have two sets of oral reasons and the Junior High will have two sets of  5 questions to answer.

 

An interactive Skillathon will be offered for junior high participants to complete while seniors are giving oral reasons. The junior high skillathon will be an educational activity and the answer sheets will be posted after everyone finishes. The skillathon is not part of the official scores.

 

Again, we need volunteers to help with scoring, group leaders, card runners, etc. Don’t forget to register these in SUPER.

 

Check-in on Sept. 28th will be at 12:30 ET with the contest beginning promptly at 1:00 p.m. ET. Awards will be presented immediately after the contest at the check-in location.

 

Attached is a map that shows the check in and contest locations. Parking will be available. Map Info: Turn left off of Singleton Station Road onto UT farm road (this is a gravel road). Go to the 90 degree turn to the left.

 

Assigned agents are Milton Orr, Chair, Sarah Orr, John Gunter, Elizabeth Hobbs, Jacob Boone, Blake Ramsey, Jack Price, Rick Thomason, Anthony Shelton and Brooke Martin.

 

Thank you.
