Virginia Tech Livestock Judging Field Day and Camp are coming up soon! The field day will
be on April 27th and camp will be July 15-17, 2019. Both events will be held on the Virginia
Tech campus in Blacksburg.  

Field Day on April 27th includes basic instruction on the evaluation of beef cattle, sheep, and

their own pace. Classes will be followed by an official critique. The cost is $25, which includes
lunch. The registration deadline is April 12, 2019.

Livestock Judging Camp will take place July 15-17, 2019. This 3 day event provides detailed
instruction in evaluation of beef cattle, swine, sheep, meat goats, and reasons. A half day will
be devoted to each species.

Camp is open to youth entering the 6th grade to High School Seniors. Registration is limited
to the first 60 youth registrations. Attendees do not have to be accompanied by a chaperone.
Attendees will receive instruction in junior, intermediate, and senior groups. Full registration for
youth attendees is $270 and $190 per adult. Full registration fee includes housing in air
conditioned dorms, all meals, camp judging manual, t-shirt, and bowling at Squires Student
Center. They are offering a commuter registration fee for groups that do not wish to stay
in dorms on campus. The registration deadline is June 21, 2019.
