ASU Hosting FFA, 4-H Judging Contest
March 29, 2013
Check-in will begin at 7 a.m. and judging contests will begin at 8:30 a.m. Contestants will do competitive judging in various categories, including livestock, horse, wool, meats, wildlife, cotton, milk quality, land, poultry, range, farm business management and homesite evaluation. An awards ceremony will begin at 2 p.m. with the high-scoring individuals in each category winning scholarships.
The MIR Center, commonly called the ASU Ranch, is located just north of San Angelo off U.S. Hwy 87 and Grape Creek Road. The ASU Invitational Judging Contest is classified as a FFA Career Development Event (CDE).
According to the FFA website, “Since 1928, FFA has worked to create events that demonstrate the meaningful connections between classroom instruction and real-life scenarios. CDEs build on what is learned in agricultural classes and the FFA. The events are designed to help prepare students for careers in agriculture.”
