Livestock Judging

Livestock Judging Team

Livestock judging involves carefully evaluating a class of animals—such as cattle, sheep, goats, 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. 

Arnold Arena

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. ​
