Linn-Benton Community College's Livestock Judging Team
Competitive livestock judging is a co-curricular activity that is an integral part of the Animal Science program at LBCC. Students do not need to be an agriculture major or have any prior judging experience to participate. Beyond learning and applying current selection criteria, students also learn important communication, critical thinking, and teamwork skills. These traits are beneficial in any career path a student may choose.
The opportunity to travel, make industry contacts, and be on the leading edge of change make judging not only a valuable resource, but an enjoyable experience as well. Numerous employers and university faculty consider the judging team experience just as important as the courses a student completes.
LBCC is very proud of the success enjoyed by its judging team members, both in competition and in life. The 2009 team were champions at the North American event. In addition, 5 former Judging Team members have been selected as LBCC Outstanding Alumni.
