OSU Meat Animal Evaluation Judging Team Named 2018 Reserve National Champions

OSU Meat Animal Evaluation Judging Team Named 2018 Reserve National Champions

Oklahoma State University’s Meat Animal Evaluation Judging Team captured the Reserve National title at the 2018 National Meat Animal Evaluation Contest in Lubbock, Texas. They were the high team in beef cattle evaluation and they placed 2nd in the breeding animal division. The team was coached by Gretchen Mafi and Blake Bloomberg.

“The 2018 Meat Animal Evaluation Contest evaluation division was very challenging,” said Mafi. “The students worked hard preparing for the contest to better understand livestock and meat pricing, as well as industry averages of yield and quality. The students gained beneficial knowledge to use in the future evaluation of livestock and meat.”

Four of the team members were named High Individual Overall; P.D. Miller (first), Jesse Henson (fourth), Lori Edwards (17th), and Haley Stark (20th). Other team members include Rachel Booth, Riley Bradshaw, Corbin Cowles, Kevin Edwards, Cody Heavin, Sarah Hunker, Jessica Juvinall, Hannah Lauffenburger, John Nelson, Anna Grace Parnell, Macy Perry, Colton Pratz, Mikalyn White and Amber Wright.
