4-H clover 4-H animal judging contests

A series of Minnesota State Fair events for 4-H'ers who have qualified in their local fairs. 

Effectively evaluating breeding and market animals is highly important in the animal industry. Judging is an art developed through patient study and long practice. 4-H'ers interested in dairy, general livestock (beef, meat goat, sheep and swine), horses and rabbits can learn to be a good judge by knowing the parts of the animal and their location, knowing which parts are most important for meat and breeding stock production, making keen observations, comparing to the ideal, and weighing the good and bad points of each animal.
