Livestock judging involves carefully evaluating a class of animals—such as steers, sheep, and swine—and then rating them against commonly accepted standards. The student then gives oral reasons regarding his or her placement of the animals within the class. Through the program, students learn teamwork, effective communication skills, and leadership skills. For more information, please contact Coach Blake Davis.
Fort Scott Community College has one of only a few indoor community college livestock arenas in Kansas. Arnold Arena hosts a variety of events including rodeo events, livestock judging practices, judging camps, and other agriculture workshops.
