J d ' t O O O O "This year the livestockjudging team, at most of the contests, were ahead of every Texas team . . . including some Texas teams like Texas Tech and A8LM," said Mike Bragg, an agriculture major and member of the ACU judging team. The judging teams had about 22 members who made up six teams. The teams competed in horse judging, livestock judging, meat evaluation, livestock evalua- tion, and soil and dairyjudging. "If you've got some background in agriculture and livestock or farming it helps," Bragg said. And most of the judg- ing team members were agriculture majors with agricultural backgrounds. The teams, which practiced every Tues- day and Thursday, competed at seven shows in the southern part of the country. They judged beef cattle, sheep, horses and swine to determine marketability of each animal. "The livestock are all judged according to their carcass value, or the value to the meat packer, and palatable meat yield for the consumerf' Bragg said. The ACU teams sponsored a High School Field Day contest for Future Farmers of America and Four-H Clubs, and high school and junior teams judged. "The ACU livestock judging team put the official placings on with the help of some some professors," he said. This year the freshman agricultural judging team competed at the National Southwest Hampshire Judging Contest in Sweethwater where they placed first overall. The judging teams also traveled to the Fort Worth Livestock Show where they gained an overall seventh place out of 13, and to the Houston Livestock Show where they placed fifth overall. ln October the teams traveled to the Louisiana State Fair in Shreveport, where they competed against 15 top agricultural universities and placed first overall. "It's a lot of work, but it's been worth it," Bragg said.
