Registration is NOW OPEN for the Meat Judging Contest! πŸ₯© πŸ€

πŸ—“ Held on August 28, 2021
🟒 Open to youth in grades 4-12
πŸ“ Iowa State University campus

Meat Judging trains youth to distinguish differences in the values of various meat cuts. Youth learn how to evaluate and identify retail cuts as well as wholesale cuts and carcasses. The 4-H meat judging program allows youth to learn about the different cuts of meat along with the trimness and quality factors that affect the safety and taste of the meat products we consume.

Registration will close on August 16th. To learn more about the competition and to register, visit ➑ https://www.extension.iastate.edu/4h/meat-judging
