C - Regional - Multi Judging Virtual Competition

Deadline: June 15, 2020 11:46 PM  
Start Date: June 22, 2020 9:00 AM End Date: June 24, 2020 4:00 PM
Location: Virtual Event  

Program Description:

 

There is so much more to judging than simply putting animals or items in the same order as the official judge. Classes may include horses (heavy or light), cereal grains (malt barley or seed wheat), beef (yearling bulls or replacement heifers), dogs, dairy, several consumer style classes. 

Hello members and leaders,

We will be trying a different format in these new times we are currently dealing with.

For this competition, we will be judging on-line by viewing YouTube videos and submitting placings and reasons via email.

There will be five separate videos, one for each class:

  • Horse
  • Beef
  • Sheep
  • CDM – honey
  • CDM – TBD

The format of videos will be:

  • A critique provided by the class judge followed by videos from livestockjudging.com
  • The videos will be available for viewing from noon on June 22 until midnight on June 24

Method of judging by members:

  • An email will be sent for each class to each registered member
  • Members will record their oral reasons using their phone, computer, ipad (maximum two minutes). Members should then reply to the email they received for that class and attach the audio file that they recorded. The member will include their placings in the subject line of the email. NOTE: A reply is used to ensure that the member sends the email to the correct mailbox for their age category and the identification of the member is preserved for judging purposes.

On June 19 at 5:00 PM, there will be a demo of the judging format, a review of how members should submit their placings and reasons and an opportunity for members to ask questions. Information and a link for this demo will be sent out to all members registered to judge by June 18.

Cleavers are permitted to enter the competition and will only submit placings.

Age Splits as of Jan 1:

2020 – Senior 15 – 20 yrs, Intermediate 12 – 14 yrs, Junior 9 – 11 yrs, Cleavers 6 – 8 yrs
