Judging & Competitive Teams

Department of Animal and Food Sciences; Judging Teams; Competitive Teams

The Department of Animal and Food Sciences sponsors the dairy cattle, livestock, meats, meat animal evaluation, and horse judging teams. All have established enviable national reputations in competition. We also have competitive team for Quadrathlon (animal science) and Food Science Quiz Bowl. Students from every background are encouraged to participate.

Our department has earned more national judging championships than any other university. In 2018, Oklahoma State University received the "triple crown," winning three national championship titles in three days for livestock, meat, and horse judging. The last time a university won three championships in the same year was in 1987.

Students who participate on these judging teams gain knowledge and experience in teamwork, critical thinking, and communication. The important skills and networking they receive will affect them for their entire careers. Scholarship opportunities are also available for judging team students. Learn more about our teams by visiting their page or contacting the coach.
