Agriculture Judging team give experience How can one be judged for the way he judges? Members of the livestock judging team could tell you, it happened to them often. The team entered competitions against judging teams from colleges and univer- sities across the nation. The competitions included four categories: sheep, swine, cat- tle and horses. Members of the team examined four animals in each category and rated them according to a set of criteria, placing the best animal first. After making a decision, each team member received two minutes to explain to the officials why he ranked the animals in the order he did. Competitors were judged on how closely their rankings matched that of the officials and how well they explained why they chose that order. Brad Stuart, senior agriculture business major from Roby and former judging team member, emphasized the importance of the competitions. "The judging competitions teach you what to look for in an animal,', he said. "It's probably the most beneficial ex- perience students can have as far as livestock is concerned." The livestock judging team competed in approximately eight meets. The meets were in Louisiana, Colorado, Houston and elsewhere in the South and West. The team received no money from the school to attend the competitions, Stuart 160 Agriculture said. Instead their financial support came from the Block and Bridle Club and the Aggie Club. Stuart, who was president of the Block and Bridle Club, said both clubs supported the judging team by raising money through various joint projects. Among the projects were a fall ham sale and a horse show. "Sometimes, in spite of our support, a team member has to pay for his own lodg- ing and meals," Stuart said, "so the com- petition is something that takes dedication and desire." All students who attended the competi- tions learned to judge livestock in Dr. Ed DuBose's course, Livestock Judging. The class met on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 to 6 p.m. Students in the class went to area ranches and practiced judging the livestock on the ranches. "We've gone to ranches in Roby, Roscoe, Sweetwater, Clyde, Stamford and several other places that are within an hour's drive of Abilenej' said DuBose. 'Sometimes we will leave for a judging competition a couple of days early and visit ranches or colleges farther away. Before the Houston competition we stopped at Texas A8cM to practice." DuBose has coached livestock judging teams since 1954. He started as ACU's coach 17 years ago. "I guess the reason I really enjoy livestock judging so much is the competition aspect," he said. Besides his teaching duties, DuBose was involved in agricultural research. He wa in the fourth year of a project titlec "Weanling Equine Nutrition: Proteii Levels and Utilization of Urea." Two other professors in the agricultur- department also conducted research. Dr. Francis Churchill studiec "Ecological Relationships with the Blacl Tailed Prairie Dog and the Black-Footee Ferret." Churchillis project was designee to map all the "towns,' of Texas prairil dogs and to locate the almost extinc black-footed ferret. Dr. Ed Brokaw studied the positive rela tionships between thyroid levels in cattl and weight gain in a study titled "The In vestigation of the Predictive Value o Thyroid Indices in the Evaluation of Bee Cattle Performance."
