Ohio State Fair 4-H Livestock Judging Contest

If you are interested in participating in the Ohio State Fair 4-H Livestock Judging Contest, please reach out to Leslie Cooksey at cooksey.25@osu.edu.

News from Ohio 4-H regarding the Ohio State Fair Livestock Judging Contest:

We hope you and your team are looking forward to our return to in-person contests in 2021. We will be switching this year’s contest from our traditional Friday to Thursday, July 29th to avoid conflict with many beef and swine breed show opportunities for youth at the Ohio State Fair. For those unable to join this updated event, please reach out to Benjamin Wenner (wenner.20@osu.edu) or Greg Meyer (meyer.213@osu.edu) regarding any seniors you have who want to try out for the Ohio 4-H Livestock Judging Team. We are very sorry for the inconvenience this may cause but had to prioritize the availability of the overall group.

The rules and registration form for the contest are attached: 2021 OSF 4-H Livestock Judging Contest Rules. Registration is due by July 16, 2021. You must pre-register and we cannot accept day-of registrations. Packet pick-up will begin at 8:30 am on July 29th, and the contest will begin at 10:00 am. As we get closer and teams register, we will send out a map with entrance/parking directions and will include more details.

As a reminder, Ohio 4-H events are operated under health guidance from OSU and as such we have not lifted mask rules for indoor events, regardless of vaccination status. While we live in an ever-evolving situation, the current guidance would include masks worn during oral reasons. We will update you if this rule changes as OSU permits.
