-released by OPSU Campus Communications 07/06/06

Goodwell, Okla. — Nineteen high school and junior high school students representing four states recently gathered at Oklahoma Panhandle State University to hone their skills at a livestock judging camp. Co-hosted by OPSU’s Animal Science Department and Seward County Community College’s Agriculture Department, the young adults gained experience in all aspects of livestock judging, from identifying desirable traits in each type of animal to justifying their choices through oral reasons.

The camp was developed and operated by the livestock judging coaches from the two schools, OPSU’s Aaron Preator and Seward County’s Ryan Orrick plus Evan Winchester, an ag instructor at SCCC as well as collegiate livestock judging team members. The two overall winners in the final competition were Emily Horvath in the Senior Division and Rhett Linc in the Junior Division.

Following is a list of students participating in the camp.
