Youngsters learn hands-on livestock judging at fairgrounds

Yellowhead 4-H Club members learn the ins and outs of judging animals

The Yellowhead 4-h Club held our ‘Hands-on-Judging’ day at the North Thompson Fall Fair grounds to practice for our upcoming judging event.

Hands-on-judging was very fun. We started off with a great game of Jeopardy about the animals we would be judging.

After that we all headed to our main project group. Then we got to the hands-on part, and started judging the animals and placing them.

The projects that got judged were sheep, beef, goat, horse, rabbit, cavy, and photography.

Once everybody had finished the judging we had a fun game of tug-o-war!

The girls beat the boys, and the kids beat the adults!
