The market and breeding quality of livestock determines their value to the producers, the packers and eventually the consumer. Understanding what goes into making a good market or breeding sheep, beef or swine is a valuable decision every livestock producer has to make. During livestock judging, you and your teammates will rank breeding and market classes of beef, sheep and swine. And, as in other evaluation CDEs, you will give oral reasons to back up your decisions.

To better prepare you for the livestock evaluation contest, we have put together a list of usable resources gathered from various FFA programs across the state and country. Simply click on the links below to explore and study!

PLEASE NOTE: Students must qualify at a regional contest to participate at the State CDE Contest.
