January 29, 2018
judging

Agriculture Judging has a broad base of learning experiences offered to 4-H members where the member is the judge. 4-H members improve their knowledge in the area of judging products and commodities and select the "best quality" of a given number of animals, plants, etc. Agriculture Judging is an excellent way to improve practical knowledge of general agriculture. Members can judge as individuals or teams. These events may be held at county, area, and/or state levels.
