Livestock Judging Team Gifts Fund

Students at the University of Missouri put their critical thinking skills to the test through evaluating livestock while competing nationally on the judging team. The 2020 team began its competition season at the National Western Stock Show in Denver and will complete their season at the Houston Livestock Show. The highlight of the year thus far was a tenth place finish at the Dixie National. CAFNR and the Division of Animal Sciences has demonstrated its commitment to the program by hiring Tawnie DeJong from Michigan State University as evaluation instructor and judging team coach! The Livestock Judging Team Gift Fund assists with covering team expenses so that students of any means can participate in livestock judging competitions and educational and networking opportunities that are invaluable career building tools. Please show your support of the program with a generous donation. Gifts of any amount are welcome; those making gifts of $500 or more are identified as sponsors on banners in newly renovated Trowbridge Livestock Center. Thank you for your support of Mizzou Livestock Judging!
