FFA Chapters & 4-H Clubs:

The Liberty FFA Alumni is hosting their twenty second annual invitational livestock judging contest on
March 11, 2023 at the Liberty High School. Registration will begin at 8:30 AM, contest directions at
9:00 AM with the actual contest beginning at 9:15 AM. The contest will consist of eight rings of
livestock, three rings of cattle, two rings of swine, and three rings of sheep. There will be a questions
class for beef, swine and sheep.

This year again we will have a senior and a junior division. To be considered a junior team all team
members must be in the 8th grade or lower. The senior division will be having at least one member of
the team in the 9th grade or above. Team members must be in 12th grade or lower. To compete in the
senior division, an individual must be in the 12th grade or lower.

Awards in the senior division will be awarded to the top twenty individuals and the top 8 teams overall
in the contest. Awards in the junior division will be awarded to the top ten individuals and the top 3
overall teams. There will be plaques for the top overall team in each of the species. The entry fee is
$25/team and $7/individual.

A team will consist of four members with all four scores counting towards the team total. Ties will be
broken with the question scores. A chapter or club may enter as many teams as they would like.
This year, we will be using a scantron card instead of the individual ring cards. Contestants will need to
complete the scantron using a #2 lead pencils. I have attached a sample of the scantron we will be using
that day. It is found at It is the Livestock Form #705A-12. We will have extra
alumni members assisting the contestants to complete the scantron if needed.

If you are planning to participate, a reply by March 10th would greatly be appreciated. 

Hope to see you there!

Thank you,
