FSCC to Host Livestock Judging Camps

FSCC to Host Livestock Judging Camps

Fort Scott, Kan.—The Fort Scott Community College Agriculture Department will host its annual livestock judging camps in June. A beginners’ session for younger students will be offered from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on Tuesday, June 20, and an extended session for older students will begin at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, June 21 and end at 11:30 am on Friday, June 23.
 
During both sessions, students will learn how to evaluate livestock and provide oral reasons in a fun learning environment. Students will learn transitions and phrases used during livestock judging, and they will be encouraged to improve on every set of reasons. Upon completion of the camp, students will be more comfortable with judging livestock and presenting oral reasons.
 
The fee for the beginners’ session is $45 and the extended session is $175. Students who attend the extended session will stay two nights in the dorms; meals are included in the fee. Students attending the beginners’ session should check in at 9:00 am at Burris Hall, and students attending the extended session should check in at 1:00 pm at Boileau Hall. Boileau Hall and Burris Hall are located on the Fort Scott Community College campus at 2108 South Horton in Fort Scott.
